Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago, who has been lagging in voters' preference surveys for president, on Friday evening posted on Facebook that she's now “perfectly normal.”
“Ang gusto ko lang malaman ninyo na gusto ring malaman ng taumbayan ay bumalik na ang kalusugan ko dahil sa meron akong bagong gamot na wala pa ngang pangalan kung hindi code lang na nagpapalit ng personalidad ng may cancer at ibinabalik dati sa personalidad ng normal na tao,” Santiago said in a video posted on her Facebook account on Friday night.
She added: “So I'm perfectly normal now, as you can tell just from my voice and the way I speak, I think.”
Santiago, who is running for president for the third time, skipped the second leg of the Commission on Elections-initiated presidential debates in Cebu last month to participate in a clinical trial of an anti-cancer medicine.
Aside from lagging in surveys, the senator also has the fewest number of campaign sorties scheduled since the campaign period started last February.
Santiago, meanwhile, said in the video that she was “happy” with reports of her supporters on social media that “many people are switching sides.”
“So we all know itong pnaahon na ito ay magdesisyon ang mga undecided voters. Crucial, napakaimportante ang mga naiwan na mga araw na puwede nating bilangain,” she said.
She added: “Kaya sana magpatuloy lang kayo sa inyong malasakit para sabay sabay tayong magpunta ng Malakanyang.”
