Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said last Friday he will seek some national elective office in the 2022 polls.
“Kung anumang posisyon ‘yun, that remains to be seen, but definitely I am running,” Moreno said in a televised interview.
Moreno’s name has been floated in various fora as a possible candidate for president, vice president or senator.
(Moreno tried his hand in the senate polls in 2016, but ended up at the tail-end when the results were tabulated by the Comelec.)
Moreno however hinted broadly that if his plans don’t pan out to his expectations, he will seek re-election as Manila mayor.
Hizzoner said he would only give his final decision regarding future political plans on the deadline of filing of candidacies, as he is still very busy focusing on his obligations to the residents of Manila who placed him in City Hall.
