IN A surprise move, Sen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa went to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) venue in Pasay City to file his Certificate of Candidacy (COC).
He will run as president under the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) wing supported by President Rodrigo Duterte, he told reporters after filing his COC at the Harbor Garden Tent of Sofitel today, the last day of filing.
Though the filing of COCs ends today, substitution of candidates will be allowed until November 15.
His running mate will be Sen. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, who earlier filed his COC to run as vice president.
Dela Rosa was the former Philippine National Police chief who later ran as senator and won.
