Lacson: ‘No ill-feelings’ towards Alvarez, other Reporma officials for shifting to another bet

MANILA, Philippines — Presidential candidate Senator Panfilo Lacson said he harbors “no ill-feelings” towards Partido Reporma’s top officials, including former House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, for shifting their support to another presidential bet.

This shift of support led to Lacson’s resignation from the party as chairman and member.

“To Partido Reporma president, Former Speaker Alvarez, Secretary General, Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib – and the rest of the Davao Del Norte Reporma candidates — let me tell you this: I harbor no ill-feelings towards you and anyone who may hereafter opt to join them in their new choice of a presidential candidate,” Lacson said in press conference in General Santos City on Thursday.

In announcing his resignation from the party, Lacson said he was informed by Alvarez that “their slate in Davao del Norte…has decided to endorse another presidential candidate.”

“Considering that it is at the behest of these top-tier officials that I was recruited as a member and the party’s standard-bearer and thereafter elected as its chairman, I believe it is only decent and proper — consistent with my time-honored uncompromising principles — to make this decision,” Lacson said.

 “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.

 Lacson will continue his presidential bid as an independent candidate.
