Rep. Rufus Rodriguez. TMT PHOTOA LEADER of the House of Representatives said he will reintroduce two electoral reform bills in the next Congress, including one that will prohibit any candidate from having any substitute in any local or national election. They are intended to put an end to practices by politicians and political parties that put in doubt the integrity of our elections," Rodriguez said. Rodriguez introduced House Bills 10380 and 10381 in October last year, but they were not passed by the current Congress. Under House Bill (HB) 10380, a political party will be forbidden from substituting any candidate unless he or she died or was disqualified.
