Tuloy ang laban! Sereno urged to run for senator


There is a brewing online clamor for former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to run for senator in next year’s elections.

The online support for Sereno came after the Supreme Court upheld with finality her removal from the top post via a quo warranto petition.

“Now CJ Sereno should carry on her fight for an independent judiciary. She owes that to her country. She needs a platform,” lawmaker Teddy Baguilat Jr. tweeted. “I hope our party drafts her into the Senate resistance slate,” he added.

Former Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda also urged Sereno to seek a senatorial bid following her ouster from the Supreme Court.

“Memo to CJ Sereno: So you were finally ousted. Be of good cheer! You were not diminished, the Supreme Court was! I announced you as CJ in the midst of Jesse’s tragedy but your exit was far more tragic for the rule of law. Your demise is highly exaggerated. Run for the Senate,” he tweeted.

Another netizen @realmickoi commented: “I urge the former CJ Sereno to run for Senate this 2019 election. #TuloyAngLabanParaBayan.”
