Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 6)— Senators Juan Miguel "Migz" Zubiri and Joel Villanueva formalized their bids for reelection in 2022 after filing their certificates of candidacy (COC) on Wednesday.

Both will be running as independent candidates.

In separate speeches after filing, Zubiri and Villanueva highlighted their track records as politicians and cited the measures they helped pass while sitting in Congress.

Villanueva, a former secretary of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, won a Senate seat in 2016. He previously served as representative of the Citizens' Battle Against Corruption (CIBAC) party-list.

Zubiri also served both houses of Congress, having been representative of Bukidnon's 3rd district prior to his Senate stint.
