Juan Miguel Zubiri, more popularly known as Migz Zubiri and one of the candidates of the upcoming senatorial elections, was a Senator in the 14th Congress of the Philippines and a congressman representing the third district of Bukidnon. He is a member of Lakas CMD.
Migz Zubiri resigned as senator on August 3, 2011 after being accused of poll fraud. The one who was allegedly wronged, Senator Koko Pimentel, took over his post.
His dramatic resignation from the Senate two years ago after allegations of poll fraud is still etched in the voting public’s mind though, a pity considering the prodigious 651 laws he has championed and a record perfect attendance in the Congress’ plenary sessions for 12 years.
Juan Miguel Zubiri graduated from University of the Philippines Los Baños with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness. Since then, Migz Zubiri was involved in environmental programs and became the founder of the Philippine Deer Foundation, a deer conservation project, and president of Katala Foundation, a Palawan-based organization that protects endangered wildlife species and their habitats.
As a politician, Juan Miguel Zubiri served the 3rd District of Bukidnon from 1998 to 2007. During his term as senator, he helped steer the Senate to a record performance of around 650 bills enacted into laws. Juan Miguel Zubiri was the principal author and sponsor of more than 20 major laws. Miguel Zubiri worked for the passage of RA 9513 or the Renewable Energy Act of 2008 and RA 9367 or the Biofuels Act of 2006, earning him the moniker Mr. Clean Energy. Among the other laws Migz Zubiri sponsored, principally authored or co-authored are: Organic Agriculture Act of 2010; Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act; RA 9679 – the Home Development Mutual Fund Law of 2009 (Pag-IBIG Fund); and RA 9997 – the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos Act of 2009.
