MANILA, Philippines — Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri formalized his bid for reelection on Wednesday.

Zubiri lodged his certificate of candidacy at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent at 9:16 in the morning. He will be running as an independent candidate.


After filing his COC, Zubiri called on the public to support him as he seeks another term.

“Ako po ay muling humihiling ng suporta at pagtitiwala ng ating kababayan. Lakas loob kong sasabihin sa inyo na hindi lugi ang taumbayan sa aking serbisyong publiko sa anim na taon na ibinigay ko po nitong 17th at 18th Congress,” the senator said.


(I am again asking for the support and trust of our fellow Filipinos. I am confidently telling you that Filipinos did not lose during my six years of service in the 17th and 18th Congress.)

“Nagampanan ko po ang aking tungkulin nang mahusay at natupad [ang mga ipinangako]… mga pangako na gagawin ko nung tumakbo ako nung 2016 ay atin pong nagawa. Marami po tayong mga batas na [naipasa],” he added.

(I fulfilled my duties efficiently. My promises when I ran in 2016 were attained. We have many laws passed.)

Zubiri also noted his track record which he said is corruption-free.

“Wala po tayong isyung korupsyon sa halos 20 [taon] pong nanerbisyo bilang mambabatas,” Zubiri said.

(I have no corruption issues in my almost 20 years of service.)

“Hinihingi ko po muli sa ating mga kababayan na kung pwede bigyan po tayo [ng] isa pang pagkakataon na magserbisyo sa inyo at hindi po kayo mabibigo sa gagawin po natin,” he went on.


(I am asking our fellow Filipinos to give me one more chance to serve and I will not fail you.)

In September, the COOP NATCCO Party-List adopted a resolution supporting the senator.

Earlier, Senator Panfilo Lacson said that Zubiri is among the individuals included in their tandem ticket.
