Who is Antonio Trillanes IV?

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Sen. Antonio "Sonny" Trillanes IV is going against two colleagues from the Nacionalista Party who are also running for vice president.

The lawmaker is banking on his anti-corruption crusade to bring in votes.

Full Name: Antonio Fuentes Trillanes IV

Trillanes previously had issues with the law because of his political beliefs.

In a CNN Philippines interview, the former soldier rebel said he doesn't let anything stand in the way of his goals:

"Probably people would vote for me because they don't want anybody who is corrupt; they want somebody who is young and dynamic and somebody who will not talk the talk but able to walk the walk or somebody who can get things done."
