‘Wag pangunahan! Roque denies resigning as Duterte’s spokesperson


By Prince Golez

Harry Roque Jr. has not resigned as spokesperson of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“I have not resigned. Thanks!” Roque, who is flying to China today, told reporters Thursday.

The spokesman made the statement a few days after Duterte said that Roque threatened to resign after being kept in the dark about the chief executive’s medical checkup at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan City.

On Monday, Roque, who is reportedly running for a Senate seat in the next year’s elections, announced he had filed a leave of absence to travel overseas.
