Mark Lapid, son of Senator Lito Lapid confirmed that he’s running for the Senatorial slate in the 2016 national elections.

Sen. Lapid said after his two terms or 12 years in the Senate, he now feels that he wants to serve as mayor of Angeles City, Pampanga.

The Senator admits that he no longer feels deserving of the Senate because he still feels nervous and is afraid of speaking in the plenary because of fear in arguing with fellow Senators.

In a rare time, Lapid attended this morning’s hearing of the Senate committee on youth lead by Sen. Bam Aquino.

As expected, Lapid did not ask nor speak.

Lapid also attended the hearing on the Senate committee on public order and dangerous drugs headed by Sen. Grace Poe.

The Senator assured his support with Poe in case she will run for a higher position in the coming elections.
