Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano is running for senator in 2019.

The Sipalay, Negros Occidental native said he has been nominated by the Magdalo party to run for senator next year.

Alejano said the country needs “independent-minded” senators.

“The country’s need for independent-minded senators who are willing to forward the interests of the people prompted me to accept the nomination,” Alejano, a staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, said.

He also vowed to “speak for the people, stand up for our democracy, and defend our sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
