Agot Isidro, in a recent Twitter post, highlighted the need for the Philippines to have an inspiring leader just like Ukraine’s president.
Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of the eastern European country, became an instant news sensation after standing his ground against the more powerful Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“What is happening in Ukraine highlights the importance of a strong, fearless, inspiring leader. Standing up to a ruthless dictator,” Agot’s tweet reads.
There are some sectors in society that view Putin as a “ruthless dictator,” hence perhaps Agot’s reference to the term.
She then said that it should be something that voters should ponder on particularly that elections are coming.
“Something to think about this coming elections,” she wrote in her tweet.
Agot then slammed a candidate whom she didn’t name for running away from debates, hinting that it’s an act of cowardice.
“Isang kandidato dyan, debate lang naduduwag na,” Agot said in her tweet.
The singer-actress is known to be very vocal when it comes to social and political issues.
Maria Margarita Amada Fteha Isidro, better known to most as Agot Isidro, is a Pinay actress, singer, host, and occasional activist. She was born on July 19, 1966, to Architect Jose Isidro and Palestinian Edwarta Fteha. Agot is the fourth among six siblings. During her college days, Agot studied and graduated from the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, with a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. She then pursued Fashion Buying and Merchandising in New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology, where she finished with Latin honors. The singer and actress also completed a master’s degree in communication at the Ateneo de Manila University. Despite her academic achievements, Agot went on to pursue her passion for singing and eventually acting.
A couple of months ago, Agot also took to Twitter and said that she likes Nadine Lustre. It would seem that the feisty comment of Nadine about people who would use foul language in conversations appealed to the premier actress. Nadine also used the term "asal imburnal" to describe people who would use the words "bobo" or "tanga" in their conversations. "Love her," captioned Agot in her retweet of Philstar's quote card of Nadine.
Previously, she also took to the microblogging platform and called out Cong. Claudine Bautista, who is the representative of Drivers United for Mass Progress and Equal Rights. She pointed out the lavish wedding of the congresswoman. Bautista was adorned in a Michael Cinco gown and her wedding was at the luxurious Balesin. According to Agot, the gown of Bautista "can feed hundreds of families of displaced drivers."
