Netizens, personalities violently react to Rep. Mike Defensor’s decision to run as QC mayor

Defensor will have Congressman Winnie Castelo as his running mate.

The decision of Anakalusugan Party-list Representative Mike Defensor on Monday, October 14, to run for the mayoral position in Quezon City in the upcoming 2022 elections received disdain from netizens and personalities.

Defensor will file his certificate of candidacy (CoC) either on October 7 or 8.

His decision to run for mayor met objections by many, including Twitter personality Kathrina Sanchez who, in all caps, tweeted, “HELL NO.”

QC residents, who are Kapamilya supporters, got reminded by The PinoyAko Blog publisher and a TV personality not to forget what the Congressman did to the Network last year.

During the height of ABS-CBN’s bid for its franchise renewal, Defensor was among the lawmakers who strongly opposed the Network to have its fresh, 25-year license to broadcast.

He even went as far as to appeal to Presidential candidates back on September 23–to put the renewal of the Kapamilya Network’s franchise a non-priority.

Filmmaker Antoinette Jadaone could not believe the audacity of Defensor to run as mayor, knowing that Quezon City was the headquarters of ABS-CBN.

Journalist Raissa Robles opposed Defensor’s decision to run as mayor of Quezon City.

She even pointed that the lawmaker does not deserve her vote.

Even Netizens urged Kapamilya fans to “campaign against” Defensor.

A Netizen even said that Quezon City residents could finally get their revenge against Defensor this upcoming election.

Other netizens also consider the current QC mayor, Joyce Belmonte as the suitable leader of the city rather than Defensor since, according to them, she showed and maintained “strong leadership.”

Defensor will have Congressman Winnie Castelo as his running mate.
