Biography

Sen. Jinggoy Estrada is the eldest son of actor and former President, Joseph Estrada and Luisa Estrada, a doctor by profession and dubbed as the "First Lady ng Masa" (First Lady of the Masses) because of her medical and outreach missions during her term. His siblings are Jacqueline Ejercito-Lopez and Jude Ejercito.

Jinggoy completed his primary and secondary education at the Ateneo de Manila University and earned a degree in A.B. Economics from the University of the Philippines.

He married Precy Vitug on June 28, 1989 and now has four children namely: Janella "Jel" Marie, Joseph "Jolo" Luis, Julian Emilio and Julienne Marie.

Career

Politics

At age 29, he was elected as the Vice-Mayor of San Juan City and became the youngest elected-local chief executive in the entire nation. During his term he took up Bachelor of Laws for four years at the Lyceum University. He was mayor of San Juan from 1992 until 2001. It was also during his office that San Juan gained the reputation of being one of the most progressive municipalities and the Most Peaceful Municipality in the Philippines.

He ran for senator in 2004 under the name "Jinggoy Ejercito Estrada" (after his father, Jose M. Ejercito, who is better known as "Joseph Ejercito Estrada"). In May 2004, he was elected as Senator and dubbed as "Anak ng Masa," a chance for him to continue the pro-poor programs that his father has started. His term is set to expire in 2010.

Sen. Jinggoy Estrada is the Executive vice-president of the Philippines political party, Partido ng Masang Pilipino (PMP), organized by his father. He is also the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Labor, Employment and Human Resources. He is into sports, and is a member of the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

Jinggoy is co-accused in the plunder case against his father. He has been charged of conspiring with his father in acquisition of ill-gotten wealth from jueteng; in the division of the tobacco excise tax and in receiving commission and kickbacks from the purchase by the Social Security System and Government Service Insurance System of Belle Corporation shares and other illegal sources. According to the testimony of impeachment trial witness Emma Lim, he accepted jueteng money. On August 15, 2007, the Supreme Court upheld the Sandiganbayan to grant bail the younger Estrada to post bail.

Actor

Jinggoy is bound to follow his father's footsteps who has entered both the political and show business arena. He started acting in his early 20's. His was part of the cast in his first movie, "Paradise Inn" in 1985 which was followed by several films where he was able to work with some of showbiz's prominent personalities. He also had the chance to work with his father in the movie, "Sa Kuko ng Agila" in 1989.

2010 senatorial bid

Estrada is running for re-election under the banner of Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino. On 20 November 2009, he announced that he would no longer be a guest candidate for the Nacionalista Party's senatorial slate, following his withdrawal of his signature on the Senate resolution that sought the dismissal of the ethics complaint against Manny Villar's involvement in the C-5 Road Extension Controversy. Estrada, however, clarified that he still “values” Villar as a “friend.” [1]

In the January 2010 survey of Pulse Asia and Social Weather Stations, Estrada emerged as a top senatorial bet, alongside friend Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. [2]

Campaign manifesto

Among Estrada's platform and advocacies are:

  • Labor and employment

Estrada deems that the Labor Code “needs a major overhaul in order to update, unify and simplify government policies on labor, employment and human resource development.” [2] He also proposes “improving the Retirement Law, streamlining the structures and the rules of procedures of regulatory agencies, providing additional protection and benefits to domestic helpers or 'kasambahay,'” among others.

  • Human rights

Estrada aims to mitigate human rights abuse cases by implementing “laws [that] penaliz[e] acts of torture and involuntary disappearances, strengthening the Commission on Human Rights and establishing a Commission on Missing Persons, as well as Barangay Human Rights Action Center.”

  • Philippine National Police

With the “modernization of the Armed Forces of the Philippines” and institute reforms previously sought, Estrada proposes the implementation of “measures that will modernize the Philippine National Police and improve the welfare of its personnel.”

  • Local government units

Estrada expects to follow up on the bills he has filed on the “increase of benefits and salaries of local government employees, especially barangay tanods and health workers” He is also bent on “strengthening of their fiscal autonomy in terms of their selection of a depository bank, their internal revenue allocation, as well as the provision of livelihood and other support services at the barangay level.”

  • Taxes

In order to fortify the enforcement of law on taxes, Estrada “seeks to initiate a dialogue with the business community, the tax authorities, and other concerned sectors on how to better implement our tax collection system.” However, the bill granting exemption to senior citizens' medicine purchases from the coverage of R-VAT and the amendment of Section 109 of the National Internal Revenue Code remain top priorities.

  • Overseas Filipino workers

Should he clinch a seat in the Senate, Estrada will follow up on his previously filed bills: “the revision of the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act, the establishment of an OFW bank and hospital; and several other bills aimed at the strengthening government policies on OFWs and streamlining the government agencies implementing these policies, as well as on the increasing OFW benefits.”

  • Media

Estrada has previously filed bills that aim “to provide additional protection for media practitioners, such as imposing additional penalties against people who commit acts of coercion, physical injury or murder against journalists; to propose the enactment of a comprehensive Journalists Welfare and Protection Act and the Magna Carta for Journalist Law; and to exempt publishers and journalists from revealing the source of published news.”
