Manila mayor Joseph Estrada isn’t ready to bow out of politics just yet.

The former President on Wednesday hinted he might seek reelection next year now that the Supreme Court has reaffirmed his eligibility to seek public office.

“Nothing is final yet but, if ever, I might run again for mayor next year,” Estrada said in a radio interview.

However, the mayor has ruled out running for presidency in 2016, saying he wants to concentrate “restoring Manila’s old glory.”

The Supreme Court recently junked the motion for reconsideration filed by a lawyer allied with Estrada’s rival, former Manila mayor Alfredo Lim, seeking to reverse the Court’s earlier ruling declaring Estrada fit to run for an elective position.

Vice Mayor Isko Moreno, whom Estrada had anointed as his successor, said he’s willing to run for congressman so the mayor could seek a fresh term and continue his plans for the city.
