Mayor before election

Meynardo Sabili

Elected Mayor


Local elections will be held in Lipa City on May 13, 2019 within the Philippine general election. The voters will elect candidates for the elective local posts in the city: the mayor, vice mayor, the congressman (which will represent Batangas' sixth district which is composed of just the city), two provincial board members, and the 12 members of its city council.


Mayoral and Vice Mayoral elections[edit]

Incumbent Mayor Meynardo Sabili is now on third and final term as Mayor of the City of Lipa and he is ineligible to run for another term. He assumed the mayorship in 2010, defeating then-incumbent and former 4th District Representative Oscar Gozos. This is despite Sabili's disqualification to run because of residency dispute. Sabili, a former Provincial Board Member used to be a registered voter Barangay Sico 1, San Juan, Batangas and transferred to Barangay Pinagtong-Ulan, Lipa City. However, the Supreme Court annulled and dismissed the Commission on Elections' ruling on Sabili's cancellation of his Certificate of Candidacy. He is now running for Representative of the 6th District of Batangas, which only comprises the City of Lipa.

His wife, Bernadette Sabili is running in his place as Mayor. If elected, she will be the second female chief executive next to Vilma Santos-Recto who served as Mayor from 1998 to 2007 before being elected as Governor of Batangas from 2007 to 2016 and Representative of the 6th District of Batangas. Her running mate is Ruben Umali, who served as City Mayor from 1986 to 1998. Her opponent is incumbent Vice Mayor Eric Africa, Sabili's former ally. Africa became City Councilor from 1998 to 2007 and from 2010 to 2013 before becoming City Vice Mayor from 2013 to present. Africa's running mate is incumbent councilor Mark Aries Luancing. Luancing served as councilor from 2013 to the present

Congressional election[edit]

Incumbent Vilma Santos-Recto, is seeking another term as representative of the 6th legislative district of Batangas, which only comprises the City of Lipa. Her main opponent is incumbent Mayor Meynard Sabili. Sabili first ran as Representative of the 4th District of Batangas (when Lipa was still part of it) in 2001 and 2007, but was defeated by both Oscar Gozos (whom he defeated in the Mayoral elections in 2010) and Mark Llandro Mendoza. However, the Nationalist People's Coalition withdrew his nomination
