Honey Lacuna-Pangan, the incumbent vice mayor of the City of Manila, has set her goal to make history again and become the first woman mayor of the nation's capital, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

During the Asenso Manileño's proclamation rally held in Sampaloc Sunday evening, Lacuna, who is also a medical doctor, said should she win the race, she will be the first in her family to become mayor. She is also the city's first female vice mayor.

"lyong sinasabi nila na ang apelyidong Lacuna ay hanggang pang Vice Mayor lang, sa pagkakataon na ito, babasagin ko po iyon (This time, I will break their belief that the surname Lacuna is good only for the vice mayoralty post),” Lacuna said.

"Ngayon, sa tingin ko may isang Lacuna na na magiging alkade, na kauna-unahang babaeng Mayor sa loob ng 450 years of history ng ating lungsod (Now, I think a Lacuna will become the mayor, the first woman mayor in Manila’s 450 years of history)”.

Lacuna faces three other aspiring mayors who come from political families and are either sons or daughter of former mayors of the city -- Alex Lopez, former mayor Mel Lopez Jr.'s eldest son; Cristina Lim-Raymundo, daughter of the late former mayor Alfredo Lim; and Amado Bagatsing, son of former mayor Ramon Bagatsing.

Lacuna is the eldest daughter of former Manila Vice Mayor Danny Lacuna.

There are six official candidates for the post, according to Commission on Elections data.

The other two candidates are Onofre Abad, independent, and Elmer Jamias of the People’s Reform Party.

Meanwhile, the vice mayoral post is being contested by actor Raymond Bagatsing, Lacuna's running mate Yul Servo Nieto, Lucy Lapinig of Partido para sa Demokratikong Reporma, and Arvin Reyes, also an independent.

For the six congressional districts, 20 candidates are vying in the First District, 15 in the Second District, 19 in the Third District, 22 in the Fourth District, 23 in the Fifth District, and 15 in the Sixth District.
