Former senator Juan Ponce Enrile trooped to the Comelec on Wednesday to file his COC for senator again, seemingly trying to prove to his critics that he is still physically fit to run in the 2019 midterm elections.

Enrile received a lot of criticism for his intention to seek another 6-year term as senator at 94 years old. And he filed his COC on Tuesday via a proxy – his lawyer. This prompted critics to point out tha if he could not even file his own COC personally, then he is not fit enough to run!

So, on Wednesday, Enrile was at a the Comelec again. But that’s not really the reason why he re-filed his COC.

When his lawyer filed his candidacy, Enrile stated that he was running as an independent candidate. But Jinggoy Estrada reminded him that he is a member of PMP (Partido ng Masang Pilipino). But to change his party in his COC, Enrile had to do it personally. That’s the rule of the Comelec. And that’s just what he did.

But, fit or not, will Pinoys still trust Enrile after being charged with plunder in the pork barrel scam? Should we still trust him? Personally, I won’t!
