Emilio Mario Osmeña
Emilio Mariano Osmeña (11 September 1938) is a former governor of Cebu. He is the founder and senatorial candidate of Probinsya Muna Development Initiative also called Provinces First Development Initiative or PROMDI in the 2010 elections.
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) had initially disqualified Osmeña, but revoked its decision in January 2010 after Osmeña proved that he had supporters and resources to campaign. The Comelec ruled that “Osmeña was not a political neophyte as shown by his experience as governor.”
The former governor said that the disqualification was brought by his full name, Emilio Mario Osmeña, which he wrote on his certificate of candidacy. Osmeña is popularly known as Lito Osmeña.
Osmeña's preferred method of campaign is through modern technology. He said that being a senior citizen, he does not intend to be physically present in provinces to campaign.
