Hontiveros plans to seek reelection in 2022


SENATOR RISA N. Hontiveros-Baraquel on Thursday said she is eyeing to run for reelection in 2022.

In an online briefing, Ms. Baraquel said she will make a bid for another term as legislator when asked by reporters.

“But there will be time to share more about that with you kasi nga may iniintay tayong anunsyo ng isang kapwa pamilya natin (because we are still waiting for announcements from our fellow political family),” she said.

Ms. Baraquel, national chairperson of Akbayan party, said the party is also preparing for possible alliances.

“For now, it’s early stages also, like most, there are a lot of discussions on alliances,” she said in a mix of Filipino and English.

She added that her party supports the call to form unity among Filipinos. — Vann Marlo M. Villegas
