Archery chief Clint Aranas bared his partial ticket for the Philippine Olympic Committee elections where he will challenge incumbent president Bambol Tolentino for the top post in the November polls.

Aranas confirmed on Wednesday that one of his running mate is handball president Steve Hontiveros who currently sits as the POC chairman.

Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association chief Philip Juico and rugby president Ada Milby will also run for first Vice President and second Vice President, respectively.

The announcement came a day after Tolentino bared the members of his party which included Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Al Panlilio (first VP), and fencing and modern pentathlon head Richard Gomez for (second VP).

In July last year, the POC held a special poll after Ricky Vargas resigned from his post, with Tolentino winning the presidency over Juico, 24-20.

Other positions in the elections are treasurer, auditor and four board members.
