MANILA, Philippines – A perennial candidate for president has filed his bid yet again at the Commission on Elections office in Manila.
Wearing black, Ely Pamatong filed his certificate of candidacy Friday, with his own group of supporters, the Philippine-USA Guerrilla.
Pamatong, who became more known not for his political ambition but for throwing metal spikes along major thoroughfares in Metro Manila that incurred the ire of motorists years ago, has been repeatedly declared a nuisance candidate by the Comelec.
