TACLOBAN CITY — Samar Gov. Michael Reynolds Tan will not seek reelection in next year’s elections.
He will instead seek a seat as district representative currently held by his elder sister, Sharee Ann.
Michael was the vice governor of the province when he assumed the post of the governor after their mother, Milagrosa, died on December 1, 2019.
Sharee Ann will run for governor, a post she held for nine years. A cousin, Arnold Tan, will be the running-mate of Sharee Ann.
James, siblings of Sharee Ann and Michael, will run for Samar’s first congressional district which Rep. Edgar Mary Sarmiento now occupies.
Sharee Ann will be facing Gemma Zosa, the current mayor of Santa Margarita town.
The Tans, considered the most dominant political family in Samar, will run under the Nacionalista Party.
