When Freddie Aguilar filed his candidacy for senator this morning, he told reporters that he is running under PDP-Laban, the political party of the Duterte administration. But PDP-Laban clarified Thursday afternoon that Aguilar is not one of their senatorial candidates.

In a statement issued to GMA News by Ron Monsayac, who heads PDP-Laban’s public information arm, it said Freddie Aguilar is not an official candidate of the party for senator.

“Freddie Aguilar is not a candidate for senator nor any other elective position of the PDP-Laban. We did not issue any Certificate of Nomination and Acceptance (CONA) from the party,” said Monsayac.

“Although he’s free to continue his plans to run for Senator, he is not part of the PDP-Laban slate,” he added.

But, in fairness to Aguilar, he never claimed that he is an official candidate of the party. He just said that he is running under PDP-Laban, presumably since he is a member of the party.

It will be recalled that Freddie Aguilar’s name was one of those mentioned as a possible party candidate a couple of months ago. Obviously, PDP-Laban has already made its official senatorial slate and Ka Freddie isn’t in the list.
