SAN JOSE, ANTIQUE—Senator Loren Legarda is running in the 2019 midterm elections, eyeing a seat in the House of Representatives.

Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao on Wednesday filed Legarda's certificate of candidacy for congresswoman in the province's lone district.

Legarda will compete with former governor and former congressman Exequiel Javier for the position.

Legarda, currently in The Hague for the Global Commission on Adaptation, has yet to issue an official statement on her candidacy. — Report from Joyce Clavecillas, ABS-CBN News
