MANILA, Philippines – Veteran actor Rez Cortez has formalized his congressional bid in Camarines Sur in the 2013 elections.
Cortez filed his certificate of candidacy on Wednesday to run for congressman in the 5th district of Camarines Sur.
Cortez will be running under the United Nationalist Alliance against Rep. Salvio Fortuno and Rep. Felix Alfelor Jr.
This marks the first time that the actor is gunning for a government post, despite being active in the campaign of the late Fernando Poe Jr. in 2004.
Another actor, Aga Muhlach, is seeking a congressional seat in the province’s 4th district. -- Report from Jonathan Magistrado, ABS-CBN News Bicol
