The Laguna local elections will be held on May 9, 2016, as part of the 2016 general election. Voters will select candidates for all local positions: a town mayor, vice mayor and town councilors, as well as members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, the vice-governor, governor and representatives for the four districts of Laguna, including the newly created Biñan lone district.

Incumbent Governor Ramil Hernandez is running for his first full three-year term as governor. Hernandez assumed the governorship in 2014 after the Commission on Elections disqualifies ER Ejercito for campaign overspending in the 2013 elections. Ejercito is seeking to regain his post.

Hernandez running mate is Vice Governor Katherine Agapay while Niño Lajara is Ejercito's running mate.

Background[edit]

Incumbent governor Ramil Hernandez, who was the vice governor at that time, assumed office on May 27, 2014. This after the Commission on Elections disqualified incumbent Governor ER Ejercito, also known as Jorge Estregan, due to campaign overspending during the 2013 elections. When Ejercito was about to step down upon the advice of his uncle, former Philippine President and incumbent Mayor of Manila Joseph Estrada, he declared a statement:

This clearly states his intention to run in 2016. Ejercito is running under the United Nationalist Alliance to reclaim the governorship of the province. His running mate is Christian Niño Lajara, son of former Calamba Mayor Severino Lajara.

Under the Nacionalista Party, Hernandez will run for his first full three-year term as governor of the province, with Vice Governor Katherine Agapay as his running mate. Agapay, being the senior board member, assumed as vice governor upon the assumption of Hernandez as governor.

Agarao's Party[edit]

On October 2, 2015, on the LP Provincial convention at Sta. Cruz, Laguna and birthday party of Rep. Benjie Agarao, which attended by Presidential Candidate Mar Roxas and Senatorial Candidate Francis Tolentino, which become controversial that Tolentino sent girl group Play Girls for a dance show, which was criticized by netizens due to obscene performance.

Coalition dispute[edit]

Hernandez, a member of the Nacionalista Party decided to coalesce with the Liberal Party, supporting Mar Roxas for the president. However, they will support, Alan Peter Cayetano, Bongbong Marcos or Antonio Trillanes IV as their Vice President—but all they're failed to get that party's nomination and instead running independents; Cayetano and Marcos are running mates for respective presidential candidates, Rodrigo Duterte of PDP-Laban and Miriam Defensor-Santiago of People's Reform Party, while Trillanes is supporting Grace Poe's presidential bid. However, Hernandez chose to support Roxas' running mate for vice president, Camarines Sur's Third District representative Leni Robredo. Despite the coalition, NP picked Incumbent Katherine Agapay as their candidate for vice governor while 3rd District Board Member Angelica Jones is LP's candidate for vice governor. Former 4th District Congressman Edgar San Luis, who ran for governor in 2013 but lost to Ejercito and decided not to run to give way for Hernadez, bolted the Liberal Party and moved to National Unity Party (even the NUP was already in coalesce with the Liberal coalition, known as "Koalisyon ng Daang Matuwid").
