    Indonesia to look into condemned Filipina's case: Philippines

    Indonesian President Joko Widodo is "sympathetic" about the plight of a Filipina facing death for drug trafficking and has promised to look into her case, a spokesman for Philippine President Benigno Aquino said Monday after he made a personal appeal. While the comments seemed to indicate a faint prospect of reprieve for Mary Jane Veloso, the Indonesian leader is seen as extremely unlikely to change course on the executions which he has insisted for months are essential to halting a national …

    US, Japan widen defense ties in historic sea change

    The United States and Japan unveiled new rules for defense cooperation in a historic move that will give Japanese forces a wider global role amid concerns over China's rising sway. Under the revised guidelines, Japan could come to the aid of US forces threatened by a third country or, for example, deploy minesweeper ships to a mission in the Middle East. US Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter revealed the new rules alongside Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio …

(UPDATE2) Senatorial candidate Francis "Chiz" Escudero is deemed to lose the vote that could matter most to him.

The re-electionist senator couldn't rely on girlfriend Heart Evangelista's vote come election day because the Kapuso actress isn't registered in Comelec (Commission on Elections) to begin with.

Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco, Heart's real name, is nowhere to be found when Yahoo! Southeast Asia checked Comelec's Precinct Finder.  The actress also admitted this to Yahoo! Southeast Asia.

"Yes I'm not [registered]. In fact I feel sad that I can't even vote for my boyfriend but since I dated Chiz I realized the importance and significance of the right to suffrage," the actress said in a text message sent through her manager.

"It's our chance to affect change in our country," she added, referring to elections.

It could be recalled that Heart made waves recently when she posed for the Election Issue of Esquire Philippines. The Kapuso actress was pictured wearing a white statement tank that screamed VOTE, a strong message to over 50 million registered Filipinos.

But it seems that Chiz no longer needs Heart's as he's already secured of another Senate seat, the latest SWS survey hinted. Chiz has always ranked between 1 and 3 in surveys, but the highly publicized feud with his "would be-in-laws" that made the headlines last March appears to be Chiz's bump in the road to 2016 presidential polls.

On Monday, the re-electionist senator is set to cast his vote in Sorsogon. It is not immediately known whether Heart will fulfill her girlfriend duties and accompany Chiz in the election precinct.
