This is not De Los Reyes' first time in the national elections. He was among President Benigno Aquino III's rivals in 2010 and was the youngest presidential bet.

Though he lost his presidential bid, De Los Reyes and his party raised awareness on issues including the reproductive health bill as well as the freedom of information bill.
