Academic excellence, professional excellence and unquestioned honesty, these are the words that described honorable Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago.
According to Senate of the Philippines, “Dr. Santiago is one of the most intellectually brilliant leaders that our country has ever seen”. Previously, the senator attempted for president in the 1992, 1998 and currently 2016 elections.
Sadly, she stated on CNN, “If I will not win this coming election, this is my last political campaign, and I will no longer serve the Senate, and I’m planning to rest and spend more time with my family.”
The majority of the youth is expressing and sharing their gratitude to the Senator.
You’ve done so much for our country. Thank you Senator Miriam Santiago for being the BEST president we never had. 🇵🇭pic.twitter.com/DomUYji1p0

Some are hoping even petitioning that if she didn’t make it this election, she might consider serving the Department of Education.
