Will Ging Suansing’s husband join Congress in 2016?
Congress might have a new husband-and-wife tandem in 2016.
Nueva Ecija Rep. Estrellita Bito-onon Suansing might be joined by her husband, former customs deputy commissioner Horacio Suansing, if he wins in the elections next year.
The neophyte first district Rep. Suansing firmly denied reports in 2014 that her husband was running for Nueva Ecija governor in the 2016 elections.
“Truth to tell, my husband has no political ambitions in Nueva Ecija. Even supposing he has ambitions, he will run somewhere else, not in Nueva Ecija. Never,” Suansing said.
She told Nueva Ecija journalists that her husband Horacio may enter the 2016 elections but “maybe for a seat in Congress.”
It will be helpful to note that some staff of a “worried” third-term Mindanao politiko has told us that Horacio is in fact going to run in a Sultan Kudarat district in 2016.
Sultan Kudarat (2nd District) Rep. Arnulfo Go is that third termer who wants his wife Amelia to replace him in Congress.
But why were Rep. Go’s district office staff similarly worried as their outgoing boss?
Initially, it is a major politiko disconnect on how Horacio Suansing could run in that province. But a little sleuthing reveals that it Horacio has just established residency in Bagumbayan, Sultan Kudarat that has his mother-in-law Bernardita Bito-onon as mayor.
And the political chismis in the district is that Horacio has deep and full pockets for his campaign.
Looks like the possibility of an-in-your face political dynasty couple in the 17th Congress is real. #
