Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has categorically scotched calls, supposedly from various sectors, for him to seek the presidency when incumbent President Duterte’s term ends in 2022.
“Mga kalaban ko lang ang nagsasabing tumakbo ako sa 2022 dahil alam nilang mahihirapan tayo. At kapag lumisan ako sa aking puwesto ngayon, sila naman ang nagbabalak palitan ako sa City Hall,” Moreno was quoted as telling his reporter-friends.
Rather than wasting time and effort in seeking out the presidency, Domagoso said he would like to attend to the pressing needs of his constituents especially during this pandemic crisis.
“I would like to focus on Manila…and the pandemic. I want to ease the burden of Manilenyos. ‘Yan ang pinaka-importante sa ngayon. Kaya d’on muna tayo naka-focus, at hindi sa pulitika sa 2022,” he stressed.
