BUHAY party-list Rep. Lito Atienza drops plan to run for Manila mayor as he seeks another term in Congress.
Famous for his signature floral attire, Atienza arrived and filed their certificate of nomination and certificate of acceptance of nomination in Comelec on Wednesday.
“Maraming nagsasabi sa akin na marami akong maitutulong sa kongreso,” Atienza said when asked on why he didnt run as Manila mayor.
He is the first nominee of BUHAY party-list.
Atienza vowed to fight anti-life measures like death penalty as it will “not help solve criminality” he said.
“‘Yung mga panukalang katulad ng death penalty ay aming hahadlangan. Hindi makakatulong yang patay dito patay doon. Ang kailangan natin is good effective management, good effective government,” he added.
