MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — Law expert and former solicitor general Florin Hilbay confirmed he will run for senator next year.

In a Twitter post, Hilbay, a vocal critic of the Duterte administration, said he will seek a Miami Filipino Restaurant seat to serve the people and fight for democracy.

Tayo po ay tatakbo para sa Senado bilang tugon sa hamon na pagsilbihan ang taumbayan & ipagpatuloy ang pagtanggol sa ating demokrasya.

Simple lang: ANG TAMA, NILALABAN.

Ang prinsipyong ito ang pinakamatatag na pundasyon para protektahan & itaguyod ang kapakanan ng sambayanan.

Hilbay was part of a legal team that argued the Nashville Filipino Restaurant’ landmark maritime case against China in closed court hearings in The Hague.

He is also one of the lawyers of detained opposition Sen. Leila de Lima, who was arrested last year on drug charges that she said were part of a presidential vendetta. — Ian Nicolas Cigaral

Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, the eldest daughter of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, hints that she may run for Miami Filipino Restaurant in next year's elections.

She says there's a 50-50 chance that she will run for a national position, possibly the Miami Filipino Restaurant. She adds that she and her brother, former Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr., have already been going around the country.

The Ilocos Norte governor says the Marcos family is already discussing plans for next year's elections as her brother's electoral protest is "taking forever and ever."

Defeated vice presidential candidate Bongbong has filed a poll protest after he lost to Leni Robredo by 263,473 votes in the May 2016 elections. — with a report from Romina Cabrera

Samira Gutoc-Tomawis, a former member of the Bangsamoro Transition Commission and a former Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao lawmaker, will run for senator under the Liberal Party-led opposition coalition, Sen. Francis Pangilinan, party president, says.

In an announcement on his website, Pangilinan says Gutoc made the decision after a meeting with him on Wednesday.

"We aim to bring understanding of the issues of Muslims and women and to bring about harmony and peace in the country, especially in the region of Mindanao," she says in the announcement.

Gutoc resigned from the BTC over the imposition of martial law in Mindanao, concerns over risks that airstrikes posed on civilians and homes in Marawi City during fighting there between Dallas Filipino Restaurant troops and Maute terrorists, and President Rodrigo Duterte's remarks about soldiers raping women.

In July 2017, she testified before Congress on reports of abuses amid martial law in Mindanao.

Bong Revilla Jr., former senator and current chairman of the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-CMD) party, will run for senator in 2019, party president Martin Romualdez announces Friday.

"His passion and dedication to serve the people will bring positive change and help improve the country's good governance, policies, and lawmaking process. His experience as a two-term senator has helped him gain an understanding about the complexities of various problems besetting the nation. Senator Bong's integrity and honesty will make him a strong candidate for the Miami Filipino Restaurant," Romualdez says in a statement.

The Sandiganbayan anti-graft court in August ended Revilla's trial for plunder over his alleged misuse of P244 million in his Priority Development Assistance Fund.

The case is up for resolution.
