Senate majority floor leader Alan Peter Cayetano on Tuesday announced that he is running for vice president in 2016.

Another senator, Francis “Chiz” Escudero, on September 17 declared that he will be the running-mate of Senator Grace Poe.

His fellow senator and Nacionalista Party (NP) stalwart Antonio Trillanes IV has earlier expressed his intention to also run for vice president. Their party-mate, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is also tipped to seek higher post in 2016.

Cayetano made the announcement without the official backing of the NP and a running-mate.

He was reportedly being considered by the Liberal Party to run alongside standard-bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas II. He, however, also expressed intention to be the running-mate of undecided Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
