Senator Migz Zubiri filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for Senate reelection on the sixth day of the filing period at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent in Pasay City.
Zubiri was accompanied by his wife Aubrey when he filed his COC as an independent candidate, just like when he ran in the 2016 polls.
The veteran legislator added that although he is an independent aspirant, he was adopted by the parties of presidential aspirants Senators Panfilo Lacson and Manny Pacquiao, and is also wishing to be adopted by other parties.
“I could work with everyone so hopefully they adopt me as well.”
“They are my friends. I have no enemies. They are good as far as I am concerned and I could work with everyone so hopefully they adopt me as well,” the seasoned lawmaker said.
Former Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Mark Villar filed his COC for senator under the Nacionalista Party (NP). He was accompanied by his wife, Justice Undersecretary Emmeline Aglipay-Villar.
Villar did not grant an interview with reporters as he immediately left the venue after submitting his COC.
He served as congressman of the lone district of Las Piñas from 2010 to 2016.
Villar won for a third term in the 2016 polls but resigned after he was appointed as DPWH Secretary by President Rodrigo Duterte.
