Senator Locsin Answers If He Is Running For President In 2022
LACSON RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT? – Senator Panfilo Lacson said that he would either do two things in the upcoming elections – run for president or retire.
With over two decades worth of experience as a lawmaker, Lacson said that he’d already “done his part”. But, this wouldn’t be the first time the Senator would run for President.
In the 2004 elections, Lacson had already run for President. However, he lost to Gloria Arroyo. Now, the Senator said he’s contemplating on whether or not he’d try again.
During an online press conference, the lawmaker said:
It’s between gunning for the presidency or retirement…
As I matured in public service, in politics, hindi lang puwedeng passion and emotion. Kailangan talaga pag-aralan mong mabuti ‘yung susuungin mo before you make a decision
Meanwhile, when it comes for running as a Senator again, Lacson said he had a lot of personal reasons why he’d opt not to. According to an article from ABS-CBN, one of those reasons was the people he was working with.
Collegial e. Marami kang gustong gawin na hindi mo magawa kasi isang boto ka lang, Lacson said. For now, Lacson said he was studying the possibility of running for President next year with Senate President Vicente Sotto III as his likely Vice President.
