Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel announces her bid

That's right the good-looking and brave solon of the Prty-List Akbayan has announced her plans to run for senator this 2010 national elections.

In a press conference, Hontiveros said she has decided with her party-list to "take a calculated risk" in 2010 to help usher in a new brand of politics.

"We are running for the Senate in 2010," said Hontiveros, who began her career as a legislator during the 13th Congress.

The lawmaker said she first made her announcement during her birthday dinner last Monday night. Among those who attended were Akbayan members, Liberal Party members, and Senators Manuel Villar and Alan Peter Cayetano.

With this...Belated Happy Birthday to you madame.

Please I hope there soon to be more candidates-to-be from the roster of the Opposition.
