MANILA, Philippines — Senator Richard Gordon is seeking reelection in the 2022 elections, with a representative filing his certificate of candidacy for him.

In a tweet on Friday morning, Gordon hinted at his COC filing as he urged Filipinos to “go forward.”

“We will never rest until there are still many people who are suffering, losing their jobs and livelihood, crying for justice, getting hungry, sick and that their loved ones are dying because our government cannot provide them with more and better opportunities,” the senator said.

Gordon has been involved in a recent word war with President Rodrigo Duterte, who was irked by the ongoing investigation of the Senate blue ribbon committee on the government’s purchase of allegedly overpriced medical supplies amid the pandemic. Gordon chairs the said committee.
