Edu Manzano files COC for senator, to run as independent
Actor and television host Edu Manzano on Friday appeared before the Commission on Elections headquarters to file his certificate of candidacy for senator as independent in the 2016 elections.
Manzano said he would address the issue of “excessive taxation” and prioritize education if he will be elected.
Calling education as the country’s greatest weapon in curbing poverty, Manzano said he aims to make the Philippine educational system more competitive.
Manzano was accompanied by his children, including actor-host Luis Manzano, during the filing.
In 2010, the older Manzano ran for vice president as running mate of former Defense Secretary Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro under the Lakas-Kampi-CMD, but lost. CDG
