MANILA, Philippines — Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago is prodding Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla to run for senator in 2016.

“I’m hoping that he will run for senator in 2016 that’s why he is here. I’m talking of Jericho Petilla, the energy secretary,” Santiago said during a press conference in Makati City on Friday.
