Ex-Philippine President Joseph Estrada to Run for Manila Mayor

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Former Philippine President Joseph Estrada plans to run for election as mayor of Manila.

“We will make the city beautiful,” Estrada said today in a televised briefing after filing a certificate of candidacy. Estrada was ousted as president in 2001 on allegations that included receiving illegal gambling payoffs. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for corruption in September 2007, and was pardoned by his successor, Gloria Arroyo, a month later.

The Philippines will hold elections in May 2013 for half of the seats in the Senate, all seats in Congress and other local positions.
