MANILA, Philippines – The Batocabe family is finalizing their decision as to who will replace slain Congressman Rodel Batocabe in the Daraga, Albay mayoralty race in May.

According to Atty. Justine, the lawmaker’s eldest son, they are still discussing within the family who between his mother Girtie and his uncle Dennis will run as substitute for his father’s mayoralty bid in the upcoming local polls.

Justine said they preferred to defer the announcement in consideration of the substitute candidate’s safety.

“Isang aspetong pang seguridad rin ito na kung sino ang ia-announce namin na tatakbo baka siya ang susunod na target,” Atty. Justine concluded – Marje Pelayo (with reports from Grace Casin)
