MANILA, Philippines — Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV will seek a Senate comeback in 2022 under the slate of Vice President Leni Robredo.

“I am so honored to run as Senator under the slate of our next President,” Trillanes said in a tweet.


Trillanes made the announcement a few hours after Robredo declared her presidential bid in next year’s elections.

The former senator has been prodding Robredo to finalize her

plans for the 2022 elections

since talks for a unified opposition ticket appeared to have failed.

This, after the

presidential aspirants Robredo talked to

have formalized their bids for the country’s highest post.
