Jamby Madrigal to run for President in 2010 as an indenpendent candidate

Senator Maria Ana Consuelo Madrigal or also known as Jamby will run for President in the 2010 election as an independent candidate.

This morning, Jamby filed her certificate of candidacy (COC) at the COMELEC without a running mate and senatorial slate to prove that she is not a traditional politician.

"I shall run without a vice president and without a senatorial slate to allow all like-minded candidates and people to unite under a shared and genuine progressive vision and platform of government based on principled politics," Madrigal said.

"My family has left me enough to run a decent campaign," the Senator added.

If elected president, Madrigal said she will prioritize abrogating the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) and the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA).

"I plan to prioritize the needs of the Filipinos and not of foreign investors. I want to reassert the Filipino sovereignty," the senator said.

The 51-year old senator, granddaughter of former Chief Justice and Japanese occupation hero Jose Abad Santos, has authored and sponsored bills on the protection of the environment and of women while in Senate. These include a measure for the imposition of total log ban in the country, as well as a repeal of the controversial Mining Act of 1995.
