Sen. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go reiterated his decision not to run for president after the PDP-Laban officially nominated him as the party’s official standard bearer in next year’s election.
Go thanked his partymates for the nomination made at the party’s national assembly held in Pampanga September 8 but insisted he is not interested in running for the presidency.
Go urged his party to support instead those who share Duterte’s political will to continue the change he has begun.
Go said the ongoing pandemic will be most challenging for the next president, and he is committed to help the country recover from it. Go appealed to party members to respect his decision that was communicated to the party through a letter sent right after his nomination.
