Is Cadiz City Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr. running for vice governor of Negros Occidental in 2025, should Vice Gov. Jeffrey Ferrer opt to seek a congressional post to replace his wife, 4th District Rep. Juliet Marie Ferrer?

“These are possibilities, which we cannot deny,” disclosed Escalante, currently on his second term as Cadiz City mayor.

Escalante however also said that the names of 2nd District Rep. Alfredo Marañon III and Sagay City Vice Mayor Leo Rafael Cueva are also being floated by some United Negros Alliance (UnegA) members as possible candidates for the vice gubernatorial position.

Ferrer earlier disclosed that he is open to any political plans in 2025, stressing that “whatever mission be given to him by the Lord, he will face it.”

Escalante, Maranon, Cueva and Ferrer are all members of UNegA.

Escalante said that UNegA and its coalesced party has not convened for the matter of the vice gubernatorial race.

He also entertained the possibility that Vice Gov. Ferrer may want to finish his term, and run for governor later.

There is no definite in politics. It will change anytime, Escalante stressed.*
