Still, Roque could run for Senator if he decides to as the People’s Reform Party (PRP) announced that they had a slot for the spokesperson in its senatorial slate.

However, Roque had previously stated that he would only run if Sara would run for the highest seat in the country. Meanwhile, Sara had already filed for reelection as Davao City Mayor.

But, Roque mentioned that he would meet with the Davao Mayor and discuss how they would address supporters urging Sara to run for president. As per the article, Roque mentioned a possible “party building” for Sara’s supporters.

Roque previously entered the Senatorial race but withdrew after days of indecision. Prior to this, President Duterte advised him not to run for Senator. However, Roque pushed through and Duterte publicly issued a statement regarding his doubts of Roque winning as Senator.
