He is banking on his virality and decided to run for Senator in 2019.
Wrong certificate of candidacy form.
Larry filed his certificate of candidacy for Senator. He, however, used the wrong form and Commission on Elections (Comelec) asked him to fill up the right one. Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez confirmed this as he facilitated Larry’s document at the filing area.
“He assured me that the form was the incorrect one… The form he submitted in the first instance is not the form he should have submitted.”
