DETAINED EX-PRESIDENT ARROYO TO RUN AGAIN FOR CONGRESS?

Labels:

MANILA, Philippines – She may be detained, facing criminal charges and reportedly suffering from a crippling illness but former president Gloria Arroyo intends to run again for a seat in the Philippine Congress, her lawyer said Tuesday.
Arroyo, who has been held in a government hospital since 2011 while facing criminal charges, will run for a third term as congresswoman of her home province of Pampanga in 2016 elections, said lawyer Raul Lambino.
Despite being unable to leave detention, Lambino said he is confident the 68-year-old will win the seat, which she currently holds, again.
“Expect her to win over anybody,” Lambino told AFP.
“She was able to run in 2013 when she was already under arrest and she was able to win overwhelmingly,” he said.
Arroyo, who served as president from 2001 to 2010, was arrested while in a private hospital in 2011 for alleged voter fraud during her presidency.
She was later detained at a military hospital and slapped with additional charges of misuse of State lottery funds.
However, under the law, Arroyo is allowed to run for office as long 
as she is not convicted of a crime.
