MANILA, Philippines — Both former senator Bongbong Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio have praised Antique Rep. Loren Legarda for her advocacies and for being a “green champion” in the Senate, saying that she can do more for the country.

Marcos, who is seeking the presidency with Duterte-Carpio as his running mate in the 2022 elections, said that he himself saw what Legarda did in the Senate, as they crossed paths in the 16th Congress.
