Ex-Governor Raul Lee Substitutes For Wife (Sally Lee) As Sorsogon Gubernatorial Candidate

 

From PIO- LGU Bulan Mr. Tonyboy Gilana

 

Sorsogon City, December 15, 2009:

In a sudden twist of events, incumbent Sorsogon Governor Sally A. Lee (Lakas-Kampi-CMD), gave up her bid to run for another term, when she filed yesterday at the provincial Comelec a certificate of withdrawal of her candidacy in favor of her husband, former three-termer Governor Raul Lee. December 14 was the last day for filing of substitute candidates by COMELEC-accredited parties.

Political analysts here said that with the entry of the former Governor, the opposition, led by Second District Congressman Jose G. Solis , running under the Kampi Party is in for a real run for their money as the former governor is seen as a more formidable force than his wife. While Governor Sally was seen as having done much for the province in her single term as governor, the ex-governor is believed to be a more unifying force on account of his political keenness and relationship with key political leaders all over the province. He never lost touch with all his political allies, and has continuously observed and participated in major political developments in the province.

While Lee is in for a tough fight in Bulan town, since Solis is from this place, which has a voting population of 46,000, the second biggest in the province, this was neutralized by the partnership with Lee of Bulan ex-mayor Guiming De Castro as vice-gubernatorial candidate. Analysts say Solis may win in Bulan but not with a margin big enough to carry him to victory. The De Castro camp promises a surprise win in Bulan for Lee, who has himself been beloved to the local populace. /

    i already predicted this political scenario or “sarswela” in sorsogon politics to happen as far back as december 2009. this is very basic, because atty. raul lee, husband of the incumbent governor sally, has more chance/s of winning the election for governor. ibig sabihin lalaki sa lalaki ito (raul vs. joey)

    the problem is kapag nakatikim tayo ng poder o power o kapangyarihan sa gobierno ayaw na natin umalis sa pwesto, para bang tayo nalang ang may karapatang humawak ng poder. ganun din si cong.solis after his three term ay tatakbong gobernador, at ang iiwanan niyang pwesto ay inihahabilin niya sa asawang si flor na tatakbong congresswoman (2nd district), ganun lang tayo, si meyor guiming tatakbo rin vice governor habang ang kanyang asawang si meyor rosa ay tatakbo rin uli bilang meyor, plus ang anak na incumbent councilor ay tatakbo din uli sa pagka konsehal….. simply lang ang ibig sabihin nito – na ang poder ay nakaka-adik.

    Ako, kapag sumali sa politics sa mga darating na panahon at mahalal bilang meyor o congresman o governor, sisiguruhin ko saiyo, hindi na ako tatakbo ulit kahit akoy himukin pa ng tao na tumakbo uli at manatili sa poder. dahil kusa akong bababa sa pwesto upang pagbigyan naman ang iba.
