Is ousted Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno running for senator in 2019?

Ifugao Representative Teddy Baguilat Jr. hopes so!

The politiko, who is also the Liberal Party’s (LP) vice president for in internal affairs, is keeping his fingers crossed Sereno would seek a Senate seat next year.

“We clung to a sliver of hope. But I guess the SC affirmation on CJ Sereno’s ouster was expected. For as long they are under siege, it’s difficult for the SC justices to decide independently and wisely,” tweeted Baguilat.

“Now CJ Sereno should carry on her fight for an independent judiciary. She owes that to her country. She needs a platform. In another branch of government. I hope our party drafts her into the senate resistance slate,” he added.
