Gone for good? GMA says she ain’t running in 2019: I want to resume writing


After becoming a senator, congresswoman Vice President and President, is House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo done with politics for good?

Arroyo on Thursday (August 16) said she does not plan to run for any elective post next year, when her third and final term as congresswoman ends.

“I have no plans to run for anything. I would like to work on my memoirs and resume writing my memoirs,” she said in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News.

Apart from writing, Arroyo said she hasn’t given much thought on what to do with her time.

Asked about the progress of her memoirs, the Speaker said she had to stop “because I’m in the chapter of stop writing.”

Arroyo was elected Speaker in a controversial leadership coup last month.
