CITY OF MALOLOS—Bulacan Vice Gov. Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado filed Wednesday his certificate of candidacy (COC) for the gubernatorial post.
Alvarado filed his COC through his wife, former First District Rep. Marivic Sy-Alvarado.
It was not known what caused the fallout between him and Gov. Daniel Fernando, who has been his political ally for 12 years.
The Inquirer learned that Alvarado had been in quarantine after he contracted COVID-19 recently.
In running for the province’s top post, Alvarado has teamed up with his known political nemesis, former Third District Rep. Joselito Mendoza, as his vice-governor.
Alvarado’s son, Rep. Jose Antonio Sy-Alvarado, is seeking reelection in the first district.
