    "On October 25, 2007, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo granted executive clemency to Joseph Estrada based on the recommendation by the Department of Justice (DoJ). Acting Executive Secretary and Press Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye quoted the signed Order: "In view hereof in pursuant of the authority conferred upon me by the Constitution, I hereby grant Executive clemency to Joseph Ejercito Estrada, convicted by the Sandiganbayan of plunder and imposed a penalty of reclusion perpetua. He is hereby restored to his civil and political rights."

    Since his civil and political rights were restored, yes he can run for re-election.

    It relies upon upon the argument whether he became removed from workplace or he resigned. If the President of the Republic resigned, then he/she isn't eligible to run lower back for presidency yet while he became forcefully got rid of(as an occasion, he became got rid of using a coup) then which would be yet another element. The shape could have some "holes" in it and the two events will make the main those "holes" to learn the upperhand. So the legality of his candidacy would be a remember of dialogue with the aid of the two events.

    He can not run for re-election because Article VII section 4 of the 1987 constitution says no president can ever run for re-election.
