Bro. Eddie Villanueva to son Joel: Run for senator in 2016
Jesus Is Lord Movement leader Bro. Eddie Villanueva has no plan of running for president again and instead prefers his son to join the the senatorial race next year.
“Just pray for TESDA Secretary JOEL VILLANUEVA to have d courage to run & be the VOICE of Visionary Leadership in the SENATE!” Villanueva tweeted when a netizen asked him if he will take another shot at the presidency in 2016.
Villanueva ran for president in 2004 and 2010 but lost on both elections.
His son Joel, a known ally of President Aquino, has yet to announce his senatorial bid next year.
