As Partido Barug held their miting de avance, a block away, their rival political party, the Bando Osmeña-Pundok Kauswagan (BO-PK) also held a rally in front of the Taboan Public Market.

They were planning to show their support to reelectionist Senator Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara, who was their expected guest that night.

Meanwhile, in Talisay City, the Alayon Party headed by Talisay Mayor Eduardo Gullas Sr., who is running for a Congress seat, and Representative Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas, who is running for mayor, led their miting de avance.
