A lot of personalities and ordinary citizens are trying their luck in the most-awaited 2022 elections.

From the president down to locally-elected positions, numerous individuals have already filed their Certificate of Candidacy (COC) with hopes to land a post in the government.

Among those who recently filed a COC for mayor is a Catholic priest named Fr. Granwell “Dawe” Pitapit.

Fr. Pitapit, who served as a priest for 20 years, will go against Bernard Brioso, the incumbent mayor of Libmanan.

Brioso, who’s seeking for a second mayoralty term, will also face Kilusang Bagong Lipunan candidate Christian Nonoy Alvaro and Jesus Camara of PDP-Laban.

The Catholic priest championed “the cause of the poor farmers, fishermen, women, and youth through the social action apostolate.”

Under the slate of Fr. Pitapit is incumbent kagawad Rodolfo “Bibby” Jimenez who will run for Vice Mayor and incumbent kagawad Allan Roxas and barangay Chairman Elias “Kap Nong” Zaldua who vie for councilor.

According to him, he decided to venture into politics after God called him to “pursue something else.”

Meanwhile, the Commission on Elections will post a tentative list of candidates on October 29.

On the other hand, the campaign period for nationally-elected positions will kick off on February 8, 2022, until May 7, 2022. The nationwide elections are scheduled to be held on May 9.
