Lawmakers should be required to have a college degree, senatorial bet Samira Gutoc said.

In an interview with TV host Boy Abunda, Gutoc cited the “intricacy” of studying law.

“The Senate is the highest, of course, equal with [the House of Representatives]. But, the Senate is a national policy-making [body],” according to her.

“Kailangan ng intricacy ng pag-aaral ng batas. Three times ako nag Bar exam hanggang ngayon hindi ko pa rin alam ng todo ang batas. Kailangan college,” she added.

Gutoc is running under the tandem of presidential aspirant Isko Moreno and running mate Willie Ong.

The women’s rights advocate also ran for senate in the 2019 elections but lost.
