#TheLeaderIWant: Serge Osmeña on eyeing a Senate comeback in 2019
MANILA, Philippines – Former senator Sergio “Serge” Osmeña III, who is making another run for the Senate in 2019, believes he can still do a lot for the chamber should he win in next year’s polls.
Osmeña, who is running as an independent candidate, faces a disqualification case over his non-submission of his Statements of Contributions and Expenses (SOCEs) in 2010 and 2016.
He, however, expressed confidence that the Commission on Elections would rule in his favor.
Rappler talks to Osmeña on Wednesday, November 28, about his 2019 campaign plans, his platform and priorities, and the challenges to his candidacy. – Rappler.com
