Pangilinan, who was the president of Liberal Party (LP), filed his COC a day after news broke out that he’s going to be the running mate of Liberal Party chairperson and Vice President Leni Robredo.

Robredo launched her presidential campaign on October 7 as she filed her certificate of candidacy (COC) at the Harbor Garden Tent of Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila in Pasay City.

Unlike Robredo who has opted to run for president as an independent candidate, Pangilinan was seeking the vice presidency under the LP banner.

Rappler reported that Pangilinan’s vice-presidential bid was a “last-minute decision” after Robredo’s unity talks with other presidential aspirants fell through and she had to turn to her LP party mates for a running mate.

Based on the report, Pangilinan was initially set to seek for reelection as he’s part of Liberal Party’s initial senatorial slate.

Pangilinan performed relatively well in the latest Pulse Asia senatorial poll, where he’s within the 11th to 19th rank.

Former Ifugao congressman Teddy Baguilat Jr., who told Rappler that he’s offered by party officials to run for senator last October 6, will replace Pangilinan in Liberal Party’s senatorial slate.

Baguilat, who was also the vice president for internal affairs of Liberal Party, was set to file his candidacy for senator under the party on Friday afternoon.

The Vice President, however, had repeatedly said that she wouldn’t give up on the unity talks, believing only a united opposition stood a chance to put an end to President Rodrigo Duterte’s regime in 2022.
