BREAKING NEWS: LACSON RESIGNS FROM ALVAREZ’S PARTIDO REPORMA

TO RUN AS AN INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE

Presidential aspirant Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson on Thursday officially resigned as chairperson and member of the Partido Reporma and will now run as an independent candidate.

In a statement, Lacson said the decision to resign from the party came after he got information that the party’s slate in Davao del Norte will be endorsing another presidential candidate.

“Yesterday (Wednesday) I was informed by the party president, former Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez, that their slate in Davao del Norte, led by the party secretary-general and Provincial Governor Edwin Jubahib, has decided to endorse another presidential candidate,” Lacson said, without giving any further details.

Saying that his decision to run as the party standard-bearer was done at the “behest of these top tier officials”, Lacson said it is only proper for him to resign to uphold his principles.

Despite these developments, he said he will continue with his presidential campaign.

“In the face of these recent developments, allow me to say, like a true-blooded warrior that I am all my life, I will continue this fight in pursuit of my quest to serve my country and our people, as your Chief Executive – if God and the Filipino people will it, come May 9, 2022,” he added
