Martial law survivor Neri Colmenares on Sunday said he is willing to work with Imee Marcos in the event that they both win seats in the Senate in the May polls.

During the "Fast Talk" segment of "Harapan 2019: The ABS-CBN Senatorial Town Hall Debate" on Sunday, the ex-Bayan Muna party-list representative said working with Marcos does not mean that he will agree with her.

"Well kung hinalal kami siyempre eh talagang collective ang Senado, talagang kailangang magtrabaho don but it doesn't mean I will agree with her," he said.

Imee is the daughter of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos, whose regime saw thousands of human rights victims under his martial law rule.

"I was an 18-year-old student then pushing for the establishment of a student council and paper when I was arrested and tortured," Colmenares recounted in an earlier interview.
