MANILA, Philippines — Former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio praised Ancient Rep. Loren Legarda for her advocacy and for being a “green champion” in the Senate, saying she could do more for the country.

Marcos, who is running for president with Duterte-Carpio as the running mate in the 2022 election, said he saw firsthand what Legarda did in the Senate as they crossed paths in the 16th Congress.

Legarda, who was also present during the program, promised to continue to draft relevant laws if she wins a seat in the next polls. The former senator went on to point out that she played a key role in shaping environmental laws and free university education.

Duterte-Carpio, on the other hand, thanked Legarda for his efforts.

Legarda is one of the senatorial hopefuls on the tandem list, which includes Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, former presidential spokesman Harry Roque, former Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, former Senator Jinggoy Estrada, the former Secretary of Defense Gibo Teodoro, former Secretary of Public Works Mark Villar, Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, Vice President Rodante Marcoleta and suspended attorney Larry Gadon.
