Jailed for allegedly masterminding the murder of a journalist, former Davao del Sur Gov. Douglas Cagas, filed his certificate of candidacy Wednesday morning through his wife, Rep. Mercedes Cagas.
Cagas is seeking a comeback as governor. He was defeated by Davao del Sur Gov. Claude Bautista during the 2013 midterm elections.
It is not yet clear as of this writing whether Bautista will seek a reelection. The Bautistas also dominate the province of Davao Occidental.
Cagas was arrested last year after allegedly masterminding the murder of Digos City journalist Nestor Bedolido in 2010.
