CEBU CITY, Philippines — Bets for the electoral race in Cebu province are now preparing for the start of the local campaign period.

Candidates for the gubernatorial race are scheduled to meet and greet voters in various parts this Friday, March 25, which will also mark the first day of the local campaign period, based on separate advisories sent to the media. 

Incumbent Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia and her running mate, Dr. Maria Theresa Heyrosa, will be joining other One Cebu candidates for an opening salvo in southern part of Cebu Province, with Barili as its first stop. 

Their opponents, aspiring governor and former Tourism Secretary Joseph Felix Mari ‘Ace’ Durano and incumbent Vice Gov. Hilario Davide III, will be making the rounds in the northern part of Cebu Province, particularly in the fifth district. 

Both parties will also be holding a Holy Mass before they will start their visits to various localities in Cebu province. 

On Thursday, March 24, the national government urged local candidates to observe minimum health protocols and comply with the policies set by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) when campaigning. 

Candidates are also prohibited from all forms of physical contact such as hugging, shaking hands with people as well as posing for selfies or group pictures.

They were also warned against gathering crowds, entering homes during door-to-door stops and distributing food, drinks “and all other goods and items.” / with reports from INQUIRER.net
