De Lima to run again as senator for the 2022 Philippine national elections

Senator Leila de Lima confirmed that she will seek and run for senator in 2022 national elections. De Lima is known as a outspoken critic of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

"Tatakbo akong muli. Hindi ako susuko. Tuloy ang laban," De Lima said in a statement. She will continue to prove that the allegations against her were trumped-up.

De Lima has some words to President Duterte:

“Sisingilin ka namin sa anim na taon na pambabalasubas mo sa aming bansa,” De Lima said.

De Lima, a former chair of the Commission on Human Rights, is a vocal critic of Duterte's flagship campaign against illegal drugs. 

De Lima, also a former Justice secretary, expressed confidence that the remaining drug-related charges filed against her will be junked by the court.
