Pabebe pa more! Roque claims he’s still undecided on 2019 plans


By Prince Golez

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque Jr. has yet to decide on his political plans for the 2019 midterm elections.

Roque is considering a run for Senate in next year’s polls.

“My decision, (President Rodrigo Duterte and I) are still talking. I talked to the President yesterday afternoon. Talks have not yet been concluded,” the official, in a press briefing, said on Tuesday.

“We will continue our conversation,” according to him.

On October 8, Roque announced he decided to go on leave as he would be on a personal trip starting Wednesday.

Before members of the Philippine Military Academy alumni in Malacanang last week, Duterte advised the secretary to give up his senatorial ambition and stay in the Cabinet.

The chief executive also promised Roque a new post “similar to what he is doing right now.”
