‘Green’ champion Legarda heaps praises from Marcos-Duterte tandem
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.
Legarda, who was also present during the program, vowed to continue crafting relevant laws if she lands a seat in the upcoming polls. The former senator then stressed that she had been key for the crafting of environmental laws and free college education.
Duterte-Carpio on the other hand thanked Legarda for her efforts.
Legarda is one of the senatorial aspirants in the tandem’s slate, which includes Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, former presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, former Quezon City mayor Herbert Bautista, former senator Jinggoy Estrada, former Defense Secretary Gibo Teodoro, former Public Works Secretary Mark Villar, Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta, and suspended lawyer Larry Gadon.
