It was just recently when Kabayan Noli de Castro withdrew his candidacy citing personal reasons.

On Thursday, Aksyon Demokratiko announced that he will be replaced by Sison as their senatorial bet.

Jopet Sison is not new in politics. He served as councilor of Quezon City for six years. From 2001 to 2005, he served as assistant general manager of the National Housing Authority (NHA). From 2006 to 2012, he was elected as president of the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation (NHMFC).

Aside from politics, Jopet Sison also worked for ABS-CBN as assistant executive producer of the TV legal drama series entitled “Kapag nasa Katwiran… Ipaglaban Mo.”

Meanwhile, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is the standard-bearer of Aksyon Demokratiko together with his running mate Doc. Willie Ong. The two are among the top running mates in the 2022 elections.

It was just last week when Isko and Doc. Willie filed their Certificate of Candidacy (COC) respectively as they vie for the top posts in the government.

They will go against Manny Pacquiao-Lito Atienza tandem, Leni Robredo-Kiko Pangilinan tandem, Bato dela Rosa-Bong Go tandem, and Ping Lacson-Tito Sotto tandem as well as presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos

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.
