Aksyon Demokratiko, the political party led by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, is fielding more local candidates to run for various positions in Quezon City in 2022. Ariel Inton, former member of the Land Transport and Franchise Regulatory Council, is standing joined to the party; former councilor Jaime Borres; ex-advisor and TV host Joseph Peter “Jopet” Sison; ex-advisor Dante de Guzman; Apple Francisco, sister of councilor Allan Butch Francisco; former Deputy Secretary Rommel Abesamis of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, and Jun de Leon, President of Laban TNVS. James Ibanez, actress Melissa Mendez and broadcast journalists Doland Castro and Gani Oro were also sworn in as new members of Aksyon Demokratiko. Meanwhile, a source told Manila Standard that Moreno’s national headquarters for his presidential bid is located in the Victoria Towers on Timog Avenue in Quezon City. The property is reportedly owned by New San Jose Builders Inc., a large developer who is said to be close to a Scion of Belmonte. Moreno would benefit from the support of former executive secretary Paquito Ochoa who served in the administration of the late President Benigno Aquino III. Ochoa is the former city administrator of former Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr.

An “environmentalist” is looking for a job in QC

Lynda Araneta, a self-proclaimed environmentalist, is an early riser in filing for candidacy with the Elections Commission to run for mayor of Quezon City. She claimed to belong to the Partidong Philippines-Green Republika Party. When asked by the media, Araneta said she wanted to provide shelter for the homeless, send children to school, end drug addiction among young people and push for environmental reforms in the city. However, she said she still believes incumbent Mayor Joy Belmonte has the ability to run the affairs of Quezon City. If elected mayor, she said an international scientist would help run the city.
