Senator Go reiterated that he’s not interested in running for a higher position in the upcoming 2022 elections.
On Wednesday, Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go reiterated his position that he wasn’t interested in running for a higher position in the upcoming 2022 national elections.
Emerging from a meeting of the ruling Partido Demokratikong Pilipino (PDP)-Laban party in Malacañang, Senator Go said there’s still no decision on who would be listed in the slate of party candidates for the upcoming 2022 national elections despite calls from party leaders and members for President Rodrigo Duterte, party chairman, to run for vice president.
He quoted party member, Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, as supporting the candidacy of President Duterte for vice presidency in order to provide continuity to the President’s campaigns against anti-illegal drugs, corruption, criminality, and his multi-billion-peso “Build Build Build” program.
According to Senator Go, the PDP-Laban officers were in agreement that emphasis be placed on all efforts in order to contain the coronavirus pandemic but no decision had been made yet on the slate of national candidates.
Senator Go also said that there might not be time for politicking if the coronavirus pandemic wasn’t contained.
“Bakuna muna bago politics,” Senator Go said.
Senator Go, the chairman of the Senate Health and Demography committee, said that President Duterte has his own pick for the senatorial slots but there were many interested to run for the Upper Chamber.
But Senator Go explained that the PDP-Laban slate could be filled up in the coming weeks or months as the October deadline for the filing of certificates of candidacy (COC) approaches.
