LOOK: Colmenares starts Senate bid by breaking bread with seniors


MANILA, Philippines — Bayan Muna chair and Makabayan senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares started his campaign for the 2019 midterm elections on Tuesday by entertaining queries of senior citizens during a breakfast in Barangay Old Balara, Quezon City. Around 50 elderly residents of the barangay on Tuesday asked Colmenares’ views and plans regarding issues like the pension of senior citizens and beneficiaries of the Social Security System. ADVERTISEMENTThe former lawmaker in return vowed to continue fighting for the causes of the masses, claiming that he has been advocating for these causes since his stint as a congressman in the House of Representatives. The breakfast was one of Colmenares’ events on the official start of the campaign period, including a forum at the University of the Philippines at 10 a.m., a noise barrage along East Avenue at 2 p.m., and a proclamation rally in Muntinlupa City at 5 p.m.READ: Official campaign period kicks off for national candidatesClick here for more elections stories.
