Trillanes files candidacy for senator

By |


MANILA, Philippines—Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has filed his certificate of candidacy at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Wednesday morning.

Trillanes is running for his second term as senator, this time under the Liberal Party (LP).

He came to the Comelec with former marine commandant Ariel Querubin and his family.

When asked whether he was confident of winning another term he said “nobody can be overly confident even if they look good in surveys, I leave it up to the people to decide.”

On the issue of the cybercrime law he said that there was no need to worry because there are remedies available.

He added there was no clamor against the bill when it was being deliberated in the Senate. “Everybody thought there wouldn’t be so many affected.”

“We are ready to listen and change what needs to be changed,” he said.

Trillanes also noted that when he signed the committee report the provisions on online libel were not there. “At the time it was approved in the Senate there were no complaints,” he said.

The Cybercrime Prevention Act has been widely criticized for certain provisions that many say would infringe on the freedom of speech.

    Noon nakakulong ka at naawa sau ang taong bayan kaya k lang nanalo. This time malaya kang gumagawa ng kabulastugang bagay tulad na lang ng backdoor channeling mo sa chinese officials na palihim at wala k rin namang nagawa. NAGPAPALUSOT Ka pa dahil nadiskubre na 15 beses kang nakikipag usap ng palihim sa mga chino. At ang di mo pag respeto sa mga matatanda na tingin ng marami ay kabastusan un.Kaya this time di ka makakaasa sa aking boto. Malamang sa kangkungan ka pulutin dahil sumobra na rin ang kayabangan mo.

  • PeteJrfern

    Huwag iboto ang nagbenta nang bayan sa China.  Huwag iboto ang pumirma na hindi binasa ang laman nang batas.  Huwag iboto ang taong walang galang sa mga nakakatanda.  Huwag iboto ang nagpapangap na makabayan.  Huwag iboto ang taong pumapapel.  Huwaga iboto ang walang utang na loob.

  • kilabot

    let the matahari senator file his coc. his impending defeat will be his death sentence for treason. it’s like being shot by musketry.

    para bulabugin
    ang mga entrenched interests

  • katabay1106

    Kupal na ito. Gusto pang maging senador ulit eh wala namang ginawa sa senado kung hindi ibenta ang pilipinas sa mga intsik. Pumunta ka na lang sa Tsina at baka gawin kang gobernador ng Scaborough Shoals ng mga intsik.

    • brabads

      kahit ano pa sabihin mo, iboboto ku pa rin si trillanes

    • mybelle

    • straightalks

      Obviously wala kang kaalaman sa batas. No single person can sell a territory of a country. Kailangan ng treaty nyan. Wag ka pahalatang bobo. Magbasa at nang maliwanagan.

  • doublecross

    25 votes kana sa amin at marami pa sa aming clan….vote for u…

  • Nimrod Suaez

    Estrada calls Trillanes crazy, and I agree. He must be, a coup plotter and mutineer and the  biggest spender of peoples money in the senate in exchange of doing nothing but playing the role of double agent 010. A law should be passed that non-performing politicians like Trillanes be paid only by those who voted for them and  refund  the hard earned money spent by those who did not vote for the do-nothing-leeches. .

    • melanieyu

      Well, sino ba naniniwala kay estrada? We all know that estrasa is studip and has no credibility, an innate liar. Hanggang ngayon sa maduming pulitika pa rin lumalaro. Dinadaan lahat sa black prop.

    • sulongpilipinas

      OO NGA? sino nga ba si Estrada?

    • sulongpilipinas

      mag cite ka nga kahit isang instance lang na nanindigan sya sa paniniwala nya?

      • TON_SING_WAH

         kung di pa siya nag coup baka 20 years..di tulak na mga tangke at mag afp natin lol

      • johnllander

        Modernization in the AFP is not due to coup d’etat of trillanes but due to the President’s initiative.  Coup d’etat just brought adverse effects to country.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5V5C5VVGHHJXCTJZUSIG3Z7RP4 Ed D Boy

    Iba naman style nito si Trillanes…mdalang ngumiti…matikas..pa suplado…prang galit plagi ang project sa media…malakas kumontra sa mga issue….

    kaso palaging sinusuwag ang mga nakakataas sa kanya…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZOUFGSQHQIKNRLTOKV53IU4MJI JS

      eh kung wala naman saayos ang mga nkakakataas na yan eh… ano magpapauto na lang siya at tatameme, kahit harap harapang pangwawalanghiya na ginagawa ng mga nkakataaas n yan?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SSIOG2PG33MAOXOJM2YBHBPYNM Ariel CRUZ

      Parang si late General Angelo Reyes? Tulad ni Enrile? Bakit kaya, baka mali yung matataas sa kanya kaya sinusuwag?
