MANILA, Feb. 11 — Bangon Pilipinas candidate Bro. Eddie Villanueva is set to launch his Senate bid in the historical grounds of Malolos, Bulacan –his home province — with various local public leaders set to attend the event tomorrow.

"These leaders may be from opposing camps but all of us are tied by our love for Bulacan. They stand ten feet tall in solidarity to support my attempt to capture a seat in the Senate. The future of Bulacan is beyond politics," Villanueva said in a statement.

Villanueva's platform is anchored on major issues relating to the politics of the fringes. In various media fora, he has discussed the need to focus on the “sagigilid” or fringes. Sagigilid refers to the marginalized provinces and municipalities as well as the marginalized sectors in the country.

"Our economy is growing because of ‘tuwid na daan’, but let us ensure there is no Filipino left behind," he said.

“We need moral leadership. The bedrock of good economics is good politics," he added.

The Malolos kick off will be streamed live so that the various groups supporting Villanueva can join and watch the activities. Other supporters in key cities, including Baguio, Iloilo and Cagayan de Oro, will also conduct their respective kick-off events.

Aside from launching his campaign in Bulacan, Villanueva is also set to do an online kick off on February 12, from 7pm to 9 pm, under his Ask Bro. Eddie event teaser.

Ask Bro. Eddie is an online event where Villanueva and his youth volunteers will be on deck to answer questions from netizens. Those interested to join can log on at:

Villanueva said the online Q&A event was conceptualized by his youth volunteers who are helping him spread the word about his platform and advocacies.

"If I will be successful in this run, we will need the support of the youth,” he said.

Villanueva, a televangelist, ran and lost in the 2010 presidential elections. (PNA)
