Now considering that re-electionists usually win no matter how popular or un-popular they are, the following would make it in: Drilon, Marcos, Guingona, Recto and Sotto. So it leaves 7 slots open.

If Marcos and Duterte run for higher office, then more slots open up as well. I have soft spot for some possible candidates (both in this list and not yet on the list), so let’s see how it plays out in the coming months.
