Meynardo Sabili

Local elections will be held in Lipa City on May 13, 2013 within the Philippine general election. The voters will elect for the elective local posts in the city: the mayor, vice mayor, and ten councilors.

Mayoral and vice mayoral election[edit]

Incumbent Mayor Meynardo Sabili decided to run for reelection under the Liberal Party. He was elected as Mayor in 2010 defeating then incumbent Oscar L. Gozos despite his disqualification due to his residency. Sabili is from San Juan, Batangas, but it is stated in his certificate of candidacy that Sabili was a registered voter in Pinagtongulan. His running mate is councilor Eric Africa.

One of Sabili's opponents is the outgoing Vice Mayor Lydio Lopez, Jr.(running under the [United Nationalist Alliance])whose running mate is the Chairman of Barangay Antipolo del Sur and incumbent Liga ng mga Barangay President Marlon Luancing. Another opponent is the top councilor of Lipa (from the 2010 Elections), Merlo Silva running with incumbent three-time Lipa City councilor Avior Rocafort both under the party PMP (Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino) centering their platforms on the general masses or the marginalized populace of the city.
