“On May 13, 2019, let’s choose between politics of service and politics of interest. Just remember Einstein’s definition of insanity and we can do it properly this time,” Lacson said on Twitter.

He was referring to a definition of insanity, usually attributed to renowned physicist Albert Einstein: “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

As of Tuesday, a total of 104 senatorial aspirants have filed their COCs, according to Commission on Elections (Comelec) spokesman James Jimenez. The filing started last Thursday.
