According to the politician who has been serving for three (3) decades already, he has no plans to run for president in the upcoming elections.

This, if Vice President Leni Robredo decline to be the standard-bearer of the Liberal Party in next year’s poll.

“I will retire from public service if I have no role in the coming administration,” said the 75-year-old lawmaker.

“I have been in office for probably 30 years so let others, who believe they can, serve… Give others a chance,” he added.

Drilon said that he wanted to be a “researcher for media personalities” when he retires.

It was in 1986 when Drilon started his public service career at the Department of Labor and Employment.

He later served as Secretary of the Department of Justice under the administrations of former presidents Corazon Aquino and Fidel V. Ramos.

On the other hand, it was in the ’90s when he ran for senator and became Senate President from 2000-2006, and 2013-2016.
