Lito Lapid seeks Senate comeback in 2019

The actor was senator for two consecutive terms

MANILA, Philippines – Actor and former senator Lito Lapid is eyeing a Senate comeback.

Lapid filed his Certificate of Candidacy on Monday, October 15 at the Commission on Elections in Manila.

He initially refused to take questions from reporters. “Huwag na pareho lang sasabihin ko, joke,” he said. (No need for questions, I will just say the same things. Joke.)

Asked what he intended to do at the Senate, the former senator only said: “Wala ituloy lang natin yung dati natin… yung hindi natin natuloy.” (Nothing, we will just continue what we were not able to continue before.)

Lapid, formerly with the Lakas-Kampi party under the Arroyo administration, has now joined the Nationalist People’s Coalition.

Lapid served as senator for two consecutive terms, from 2004 to 2010 and 2010 to 2016. –
