Legarda is serving her second consecutive term as a senator and can no longer run for another Senate seat under the law.


“For the past 20 years I have been serving our country well and the world and I would like to continue being in parliament,” Legarda said.

“In doing so I can help all agencies of government and continue to do my global work with the UN. Yes I would like to continue being part of Congress,” she added.. /muf
