In the province of Abra, once an election hot spot, governor Eustaquio Bersamin has called on candidates to strictly adhere to the manifesto they signed and respect the rule of law. Incumbent representative Cecilia Seares-Luna has three opponents: Ma. Zita Valera, the wife of detained former Gov. Vicente Valera; Joy Bernos-Valera, Bangued mayor Dominic Valera's daughter, and former ranking official of the Cordillera People's Liberation Army (CPLA) Mailed Molina. Abra police managed to facilitate an "agreement" in which politicians will not field candidates against one another, although it was not followed as politicians started to jockey for positions.
Incumbent Elias Bulut, Jr. is on his third consecutive term already and is ineligible for election. He will run for the provincial governorship and his fellow Bulut family member Eleanor Begtang will run as his party's nominee.
