Substitute, Gertrudes Batocabe

This photo taken on April 30 shows Gertrudes Batocabe (center), wife of the late congressman Rodel Batocabe, posing for photos with supporters during a campaign rally in the town of Daraga, Albay province. Batocabe never wanted to enter the Philippines’ cutthroat politics, but after her husband was shot dead, allegedly by a rival in midterm elections taking place today, she felt bound to take his place.
