It was also alleged that the new district fell short of the required minimum of 250,000 inhabitants in order to be a separate district.[3] The old third and fourth districts become the new fourth and fifth districts. Andaya's wife eventually run in his place but eventually withdrew for her husband on December 15, 2009 after filing for substitution.[4] On February 25, 2010, Andaya effectively resigned as Budget Secretary following a Supreme Court decision saying that all appointive officials running for office are deemed resigned.[5]
