Wives on warpath: ‘Manay’ vs ‘Manang’

Posted by akosistella on April 8, 2010


DAGUPAN CITY—It’s now the wives’ turn for an election fight in what residents of Pangasinan’s fourth congressional district dubbed “Manay versus Manang.”

Gina de Venecia is “Manay” (a Bicolano term) to close friends in show biz and political circles, while her opponent, Celia Lim, is “Manang” (Ilocano term) in the local business circle.

De Venecia’s husband, veteran politician and former Speaker Jose de Venecia Jr., won his third and final term in 2007 over Lim’s husband, former Dagupan Mayor Benjamin Lim.
