Wahab Akbar has been governor of the strife-torn island of Basilan in Mindanao for the past nine years. Now he is running for Congress. But that's okay because Jum, his first wife, is running for the position he is vacating. Cherry, his second wife, is running for mayor of Isabela City, the capital of the island province. Nur-in, his third wife is running for mayor of Lamitan, another large city in Basilan. And six other relatives – five nephews and a niece – are all running for mayor in Basilan's other smaller towns.
