Senator Bong Go’s Withdrawal
As expected, Senator Bong Go withdraws from the Presidential race. He said that he suffers from running for the top post with his family’s disapproval and his heavy heart. It was not his intention to run for President but Vice President only. It’s the president’s call now who he supports for after his withdrawal from the race, Go added.
Just a Public Servant
The senator clarifies that he can continue serving the people as a public servant. He cannot even believe until now that he’s already a lawmaker. Go believes that he does not need a position to be able to serve the people. He would keep his doors open to those who might need him.
The Senator is Not a Politician
Senator Go stresses that he is willing to make sacrifices for the sake of unity. Is this a hint that the Duterte administration would already join the BBM-Sara Uniteam? Besides, Attorney Harry Roque already runs as Senator under their umbrella. Bong Go doesn’t want the president to suffer anymore. He also cannot bear dirty politics. So, is he giving way to the most powerful alliance?
