Liberal Party leader Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan is courting Agot Isidro to run for a seat in the Senate for the coming 2019 mid-term elections.
In a recent interview with ANC "Headstart," Kiko called the party's 2019 senatorial slate "The Resistance" and revealed that they're trying to bring in more women into the fold especially Agot, who is a staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte's policies.
"She was hesitant," the Senator said, "but then we said, precisely, that we need more women to step up and so she said, 'Okay, you can consider it but let me think about it also. We're still convincing her."
The veteran actress has spoken out about the rise of extra-judicial killings in the country, and once called the President a "psychopath" for his tirades against the United Nations, the European Union, and the United States.
Agot, who is currently working on the stage adaptation of her film "Changing Partners", has yet to make a statement regarding the invitation.
However, if she does agree, she would be joining Senator Bam Aquino, Liberal Party Vice President for External Affairs Erin Tañada, Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano, former Akbayan rep. Barry Gutierrez, and Jose Manuel Diokno in the ticket.
