Gadon files COC for senator
MANILA, Philippines — Lawyer Larry Gadon on Tuesday filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for senator.
He showed up at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent in Pasay City to file his COC at 8:51 a.m.
Gadon also ran but lost in the 2016 and 2019 senatorial race.
In a speech after filing his candidacy, Gadon criticized the Aquino administration and its supporters.
“Napag-desisyunan kong tumakbong muli sapagkat nakita ko sa loob ng mahigit na 30 taon ay ‘yung huwad na pangako ng mga dilawan at mga Aquino ay wala namang nangyari,” Gadon said.
(I decided to run again because I saw the false promises of the Aquinos and their supporters for over 30 years.)
Gadon called for the impeachment of then Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, a critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, over her alleged failure to be truthful in her statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth.
The Sereno camp dismissed the accusation.
He also criticized the Department of Health for scaring the public about COVID-19, claiming that the disease is curable.
He likewise lodged a petition before the Supreme Court to nullify Republic Act 6639 which renamed the Manila International Airport to Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
