David D’Angelo, a long time environmental advocate, cosplayer and National President of the Green Party of the Philippines is running for Senator in the 2022 elections. He says he wants to be the voice for the environment in the senate, hence his tagline, “Boses ng Kalikasan sa Senado.”
D’Angelo had filed his Certificate of Candidacy for Senator under the Partido Lakas ng Masa (PLM), a registered political party that is part of the Kalikasan Muna (Nature First) Coalition.
