MANILA, Philippines — Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has formally declared his intention to run for president in the 2022 elections.

“In view of VP Leni’s preparations to run for Governor of Camarines Sur in 2022, I, together with the Magdalo group, have decided to convey to the 1SAMBAYAN Coalition to change my status from being an alternate candidate (to VP Leni) to being a principal candidate for President to vie for the Coalition’s nomination,” said Trillanes in a formal announcement through Facebook.

According to Trillanes, switching his status to “principal candidate” is necessary to become included in 1SAMBAYAN’s nomination process.

He added that with this, the Magdalo can now start its preparations focusing on the development of policy prescriptions to solve the different problems of the country — particularly on the pandemic response, economic recovery and poverty alleviation, peace and order/security sector reforms, anti-corruption/governance reforms, universal healthcare, and foreign policy including the West Philippine Sea dispute.

Trillanes says Robredo refused to meet with him over the 2022 polls

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Thursday, July 29, revealed that he has not met with Vice President Leni Robredo because she refused to talk about preparing for the 2022 national elections with him.

The former senator posted about this on his Twitter and Facebook accounts after several netizens asked him to reach out to Robredo first instead of publicly criticizing her for meeting with Senators Richard Gordon, Panfilo Lacson, along with the latter’s running mate Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.

“Simula January, ako/Magdalo (Since January, me/Magdalo), and later on through Tindig Pilipinas, ay nagrerequest ng meeting kay VP Leni para nga masimulan na ang preparation. Subalit, AYAW NYA kaming imeet dahil kasalanan daw sa Diyos na pag-usapan ang 2022 elections habang may pandemya (have requested a meeting with VP Leni to start the preparation. But, she does not like to meet us because it is a sin against God to talk about the 2022 elections while there is a pandemic),” he said.

He, however, questioned her meeting with Gordon, Lacson, Sotto, as well as former Camarines Sur 1st District Rep. Rolando Andaya Jr., who is allegedly supporting Robredo’s possible run as governor in their home province.
