Phillip Salvador running for senator in 2025 elections

MANILA, Philippines – Action star Phillip Salvador accepted the endorsement and nomination from the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino (PDP), held at a hotel in Cebu City on April 19, under the leadership of former President Rodrigo Duterte.

Ipe was invited to speak after his nomination for senatorial race was formalized, which was not opposed by his fellow party members in the PDP.

According to his speech, he said he had been waiting for the party's endorsement for a long time. He also mentioned that if many people love former President Duterte, he is ready to give his life for him.

“Ang tagal ko nang hinintay ito. Kung ‘yong sinasabi n’yo, mahal n’yo si PRRD, ako, ibibigay ko ang buhay ko para sa kaniya,” he said.

According to the action star, aside from Duterte, another person who provided guidance to him is Senator Bong Go, who is also running for re-election as a senator under the same party. Other re-electionists include Senators Francis Tolentino and Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa.

“Marami akong natututunan sa kaniya,” he said.

“Tinatanggap ko po ang aking nominasyon para sa 2025 senatorial election,” he emphasized.

“Mananatili po ako sa PDP hanggang sa huli kong hininga. Tandaan n’yo po ‘yan. Maraming salamat po! Ako po si Phillip Salvador, hindi po ako abogado, hindi po ako doktor, hindi po ako engineer. Ako po ay isang artista na PDP. Na magiging epektibong magserbisyo sa mga Pilipino!” bahagi ng kaniyang acceptance speech.”

Following the contract signing for its automated election system, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) will continue with its scheduled preparations for the May 2025 midterm elections.

Comelec Chairman George Garcia mentioned last March that despite a pending petition from its former service provider Smartmatic International with the Supreme Court (SC), there are no legal barriers hindering the poll body from moving forward with the elections.
