MANILA, Philippines — Undersecretary Mocha Uson and presidential spokesperson Harry Roque are two of the individuals being eyed by the ruling PDP-Laban to be its senatorial candidates in the 2019 mid-term elections, according to House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

Aside from Uson and Roque, also being considered as possible candidates for the Senate are Rep. Karlo Nograles, Rep. Albie Benitez, Rep. Geraldine Roman and former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Francis Tolentino.

Several months ago, Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III floated a list of names supposedly being considered by the ruling party for a run in the Senate.
