Local elections for governors, vice governors, mayors and vice mayors in the nation's first elections for provincial and municipal officials since the declaration of martial law were held on January 30, 1980. As usual, President Ferdinand Marcos's party the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan dominated the elections. The Lakas ng Bayan and the Liberal Party-backed National Union for Liberation did participate but most of them lost except for some like Aquilino Pimentel, Jr. who won the mayoral election in Cagayan de Oro City by a landslide.
