#TheLeaderIWant: JV Ejercito on his 2019 senatorial bid amid sibling rivalry

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Joseph Victor Ejercito eyes reelection in 2019 amid an ongoing feud with his father and half-brother.

Ejercito left Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino, the party founded by former president and now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, over a sibling rivalry with half-brother Jinggoy Estrada, who is also running for senator next year. 

If Ejercito wins a second term, the senator said he would focus on infrastructure development and railway system.
