Politics’ smooth-talking senator, Francis “Chiz” Escudero is determined to become the youngest elected Philippine president. This Wednesday (Oct 28) on “Probe Profiles,” Cheche Lazaro gets to know the 40-year-old senator who promises a fresh approach to politics and governance.
In the third installment of the program’s series “Kilala Mo Ba Talaga Sila?” Lazaro takes a keen look at Chiz’s life as the son of the agriculture minister of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Now the father of two-year-old twins and Sorsogon City, which he founded, the senator bares his plans to assume the most difficult role of fathering the nation come 2010.
Saying he has yet to meet a person “who entered politics as an angel and ended up as a saint,” Chiz talks about the seeds of idealism that he wants to sow once he reaches Malacañang. Testing his claims, Lazaro leafs through his performance in Congress and grills him about his controversial political affiliations.
