Will Roque run for senator? ‘Find out in 20 days’


By Prince Golez

“We will soon find out in 20 days or so.”

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr. issued this statement in response to his possible filing of the certificate of candidacy (COC) for the 2019 midterm elections.

The Commission on Elections has set the period of filing of COC from October 1 to 5.

Roque has expressed interest in running for Senate but lamented the lack of enough funds to run a senatorial campaign.

Meanwhile, the official said Cabinet members who will run in 2019 will be deemed resigned from their post.

“So magkakaroon po ng mga vacancies in the Cabinet… Wala pa po akong nalalaman na siguradong maghahain ng kandidatura at wala pa po akong nalalaman na naiisip ipalit dito sa mga ito,” he added.
