Di pwedeng walang Cayetano! Pia eyes Senate comeback in 2019

0 274

Taguig Rep. Pia Cayetano won’t be seeking reelection in 2019.

That’s because she has her eyes set on returning to the Senate, which has been bereft of a Cayetano’s presence since her brother, Alan, was appointed as Foreign Affairs Secretary.

Pia’s senatorial bid was confirmed by Senator Cynthia Villar, who told Philippine Star editor Marichu Villanueva that the congresswoman will be part of the Nacionalista Party’s (NP) senatorial slate in the upcoming midterm polls.

Villar’s husband, Manny, is NP’s president.

Pia served as senator from 2004 to 2016. She is currently one of the Deputy Speakers in the House of Representatives.
