MANILA (UPDATED) - Daniel Magtira, who claims to be the husband of presidential sister and TV host Kris Aquino, is once again running for senator in the 2016 elections.
Clad in a gray suit, Magtira trooped to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) main office on Monday to file his certificate of candidacy for senator.
He said if he wins, he will defend the Constitution and fight for equality.
Magtira, who was disqualified by the poll body in his previous attempts to run for senator and president, said he hopes that Aquino will guest him on her ABS-CBN talk show “Kris TV” and invite him on Noche Buena.
Magtira even dedicated a song for Aquino during his press conference at the Comelec.

Former Senator and rehabilitation czar Panfilo Lacson and Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares also filed their COCs for senator.
