Senator Antonio Trillanes IV will run for vice president in 2016 with Senator Grace Poe as his president.
In an interview with Kabayan Noli De Castro, Trillanes said that he would run as anindependent.
He said he would make his formal announcement at the Amoranto stadium in Quezon City on October 3, 2015.
He said his platform will be peace and order, anti-corruption and anti-poverty.
Trillanes is a member of the Nacionalista Party which has two other senators expected to run for VP – Alan Cayetano and Bongbong Marcos Jr. NP chief Senator Cynthia Villar said the party would not support any of its three members to give them equal chances of winning.
“Tatakbo po akong independent although I am a member of the Nacionalista Party pero yun pong aking partido ay marami po kaming ka-partido na tatakbong for VP,” said Trillanes.
Trillanes said it was his Magdalo group which chose to push for a Poe-Trillanes tandem. Poe’s declared running mate is Sen. Chiz Escudero.
