MANILA, Philippines — Former Cavite governor and congressman Erineo Maliksi died yesterday. He was 82.

Maliksi’s son Emmanuel, mayor of Imus town, confirmed his father’s death in a post on Facebook, but did not give details.

Maliksi started his political career as vice mayor of Imus from 1980 to 1986.

He served as congressman from 1998 to 2001 and 2010 to 2013 and governor from 2001 to 2010.
