Iggy’s sis registers
in Binalbagan


Ma. Lourdes Arroyo-Lesaca, sister of the late Rep. Ignacio Arroyo Jr.,  yesterday transferred her voter’s registration  from Quezon City to Binalbagan, Negros Occidental, and her lawyers said there is no legal impediment against her plan to run for congresswoman of the fifth district of the province  in special elections set in June.

Lesaca said she voted in  Payao, Binalbagan, in 2004 when her brother first ran for congressman of the fifth district, and she was merely returning to her original domicile. In the 2007 elections,  she voted in Iloilo and in 2010 in Quezon City,  when her husband ran for councilor, she said earlier.
