Election 2016: Why Vice-Guv Chari Bersamin is not running for a higher office

Vice Governor of Abra Chari Bersamin

Vice Governor of Abra Chari Bersamin

The filing of COC (Certificate of Candidacy) has passed. We’ve seen a glimpse of what it’s going to be on May 2016 Elections.

I have not seen the official list of candidates, but reading from different threads and posting in Social Media, the candidates are dominated by imcumbents seeking reelection or at least going for another position. Some new faces are trying their luck and hoping to jumpstart their political career.

But what really stands out after all the smoke has cleared, is the current Vice-Governor Chari Bersamin opting to run for Vice-Mayor of Bangued.

It’s quite surprising and even unprecendented perhaps. I and many political pundits expected Vice-Gov. Bersamin to run for a higher position, either a Governor or a Congresswoman or just simple seek re-election. So why you would ask?

I was able to contact the Vice-Governor. I got her permission to make her statement in public. Here’s her official statement:

I love abra with all my life. Thank you very much if many wished and prayed for my assumption to a higher office. However, much as i want to run for a higher position, some personal and family considerations prevented me from doing so. I may say that it is perhaps not yet the right time for me to vie for a higher post. I hope you understand and still support me when it comes. Rest assured I will still be of service to all abrenios nu mapagasatan ak vm ti Bangued!

So will this be the end of this issue? Probably not becuase a substitute candidate  is allowed:

Under Section 19 of the Commission on Elections’ Resolution No. 9984, which was promulgated on August 18, 2015, the substitute should belong to and should be nominated by the substituted candidate’s political party or coalition.

A substitute for one that withdraws his or her candidacy or is disqualified will have until December 10, 2015 to file a certificate of candidacy, according to the Commission on Elections rules on candidacies and nominations for the 2016 elections.

In other words, Vice-Gov. Bersamin can still run for a higher office. How? By being a substitute candidate in place of either Ruby Bersamin (running for Governor) or Atty. Marco Bautista (running for Congress). Both candidates are running on the same party as the Vice-Governor.

The question though is will the two would agree to such an idea?  It maybe unlikely or far fetch but not impossible. Substituting a candidate has been used as either as political strategy to confuse their opponents or an unforeseen event where the candidate can or would no longer run.

Come December 10, some shakeup in current lineup of political parties could occur…

    • It is a law he can substitute doc litong provided he is qualified to run a public office. For chari no to run for higher office because of some of her relatives are greedy. Thats why in my previous post im urging chari B as in B not to allow to use the death of her dear father in the campaign sorties of mamasang ruby

  3. “A candidate who have filed for any position cannot substitute or file for any position.” Basahin ng husto ang reglamento tungkol sa substitution. Kaya si Chari di na pwede mag re-file for any position kasi nag-file na sya for VM of Bangued. Ano yan? Gagawa na naman sila ng sarili nilang reglamento dahil malakas si un-justice Luke.

  7. adda naipila nga disqualification case ni ruby bersamin diay comelec manila. they are reaching/talking to the one who file the disqualification case. no madisqualifify the ruby bersamin may be this is the time charie bersamin will substitute ruby bersamin for governor. ta charie can not substitute marco for congressman or land somera for vice governor because they are not in the same party. ruby bersamin only renounce her US CITIZENSHIP oct 14, 2015 when she filed her candidacy subscribed by a notary public atty damasen. saan nga nag oath of allegiance to the republic of the phil. to be a natural born filipino. saan nga napan nagrenounce ti US citizenship na diay american embassy based on what ruby bersamin submitted/ attached documents when she filed her certificate of candidacy.
