 MANILA, Philippines—Detained Col. Ariel Querubin Wednesday took the first step toward his bid for a Senate post in next year’s elections, registering as a voter, hugging mothers and kissing babies.

The bemedalled Marine officer facing rebellion charges got a “daylight pass” from his cell at military general headquarters in Camp Aguinaldo and at 4 a.m. was driven for the five-hour trip to Bauang, La Union, with four military escorts.

It took the 53-year-old Querubin 45 minutes to register at Barangay Acao, after which he waded into the crowd like a true politician, embracing mothers and smooching babies. Former grade school classmates volunteered to campaign for the soldier who has been detained for three years for allegedly attempting to overthrow the Arroyo administration in 2006.
