This always happens. Whenever a senatorial race takes place, concerned citizens constantly oscillate between moods of hope, despair, rage and confusion, trying to cram everything they can into reviewing the policies and stances of whoever’s got the gumption to run, whoever may or may not be responsible for the future successes and failures of the Philippines at large.
This is where we come in, dear reader, dear tired citizen. From today, Young STAR will be giving you summaries of everything you need to know about this year’s senatorial candidates, from their histories and legislative platforms, to amazing or wack things they’ve done in the public eye. Think of these pieces as those No Fear Shakespeare books you used to plow through in high school. But instead of Shakespeare, it’s even more impenetrable world of Philippine politics.
There are 62 senatorial candidates in total so we’re going by batches here. Presenting the first 15 candidates, in alphabetical order. Happy reading.
