Koko Pimentel to marry partner in mid-October 2018
MANILA, Philippines – Senator Aquilino Pimentel III on Monday, May 21, confirmed his upcoming wedding with his partner, Kathryna Yu, in October 2018.
Pimentel said this in a press conference, where he announced his resignation as Senate president.
"This year… October," Pimentel said, refusing to give the actual date.
The filing of certificates of candidacy for the 2019 elections will also happen in the same month. Pimentel is set to seek reelection.
The senator, 55, has been in a relationship with Yu, 35, for at least two years now. Yu has been joining Pimentel in his official functions here and abroad.
