These are Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2nd District), Mabinay Mayor Ernesto Uy, Tanjay City Mayor Lawrence Teves and Dumaguete City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria in the second district; Rep. Pryde Henry Teves (Neg., Or., 3rd District); and former three-time congressman Jerome Paras, who will reportedly challenge former LTFRB chief Manuel Iway, in the first district of the province.
