Ilocos Norte[edit]

In Ilocos Norte, the Marcoses had a split within their ranks, former first lady Imelda Marcos and his children Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. and Imee Marcos had allied themselves with Nacionalista Party and Manny Villar. Imelda's nephew Michael Keon would only support Ferdinand Jr.'s campaign for senator as part of the Nacionalista's roster but not Villar; Keon is a member of Lakas-Kampi-CMD and supports Gilbert Teodoro. The Marcoses also had a reconciliation with the Fariñases and invited Rodolfo Fariñas as a congressional candidate for the Nacionalistas in the province's first district.[1]

1st District[edit]

Incumbent Roque Ablan, Jr. (Lakas-Kampi-CMD) is on his third consecutive term and can not run for reelection. His seat will be contested by his son Kristian and former congressman Rodolfo Fariñas.

The result of the election is under protest in the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal.[2]
