‘Tatakbo akong muli’: Sen. Leila de Lima announces reelection in 2022

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Leila de Lima, who is currently detained at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center at Camp Crame in Quezon City since February 2017, has announced on Wednesday, July 21 that she will run for reelection in the 2022 national elections.

Leila Delima stated that at the end of Duterte’s administration, she will demand an accounting for President Duterte’s promises that have yet to be fulfilled.

“Mahigit na apat na taon mo na akong ipinakulong para maitago ang iyong pagka-inutil, bukod pa sa paghihiganti mo sa akin. Mahigit na apat na taon na ipinagkait mo sa akin, sa aking pamilya, at sa labing-apat na milyon na bumoto sa akin. Mahigit na apat na taon na akin ngayong sisingilin sa pagtatapos ng iyong termino,” Sen. Leila said.

“Tatakbo akong muli. Hindi ako susuko. Tuloy ang laban. Sisingilin ka namin sa anim na taon na pambabalasubas mo sa aming bansa.” she added.

The Palace stated they would respect Senator Leila de Lima’s right to run for reelection in the 2022 national elections.

To qoute:

Kung tatakbo po siya, that’s her right, hanggang hindi pa siya convicted with finality. Sana hindi siya ma-convict with finality bago dumating ang eleksyon (If she will run, that’s her right, so long as she is not convicted with finality. I hope she will not be convicted with finality before the elections),” Secretary Harry Roque said.

Roque to De Lima

Addressing in an open letter to Pres. Duterte’s sixth and last State of the Nation Address (SONA), which will be delivered on July 26, De Lima said her unjust detention for the last four years has strengthened her resolve to fight her advocacies. De Lima also commends that she was a victim of political persecution.

De Lima, on the other hand, is not a victim of political persecution, she is being tried for politically related offenses. Secretary Roque said.

“Unang-una, wala pong political prosecution. Alam naman ni Leila De Lima bilang abogado that she is not accused of politically related crimes. Akusado po siya because of the heinous crime of drug trading, drug pushing and drug trading”
