MANILA, Nov. 27 –- Jesus Is Lord Movement (JIL) spiritual leader Bro. Eddie Villanueva is set to file on Monday his certificate of candidacy (COC) for president at the Commission on Elections in Manila.

Villanueva will be accompanied by six or seven senatorial candidates who will be running under his Bangon Bagong Pilipinas Party.

Among those said to be included in his senatorial ticket are broadcast journalists Kata Inocencio and Alex Tinsay.

Villanueva, whose JIL movement has more than 3 million members worldwide, also ran for president in 2004 but lost. He placed last in a field of five candidates.

Aside from Villanueva, ex-President Joseph "Erap" Estrada and former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando are also expected to file their respective COCs on Monday.

Estrada is the standard-bearer of United Opposition coalition while Fernando, a disgruntled Lakas-Kampi-CMD member, will be running as an independent candidate. (PNA)
