SENATOR Bam Aquino called on politicians planning to run in 2016 elections to follow the lead of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas who is set to resign from his post after declaring his presidential bid last week.

“Tinatawagan natin ang mga tatakbo sa darating na eleksyon na magbitiw sa puwesto bilang mga opisyal ng Executive Department upang hindi maakusahang ginagamit ang kanilang posisyon sa pamumulitika, para hindi maantala ang trabaho ng mga ahensiya na kanilang pinamumunuan at maipagpatuloy ang pagbibigay ng serbisyo sa ating taumbayan,” Aquino said  in a statement  on Monday.


“Tularan nila ang naging hakbang ni Secretary Mar Roxas, na nag-anunsiyong magbibitiw na bilang kalihim ng Department of the Interior and Local Government,” the senator added.

Aquino and Roxas both belong to the administration’s Liberal Party.


Another presidential bet, Vice President Jejomar Binay,  also tendered his irrevocable resignation last June as head of  the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) and as the Presidential Adviser on OFW Affairs.

So far, only Binay and Roxas have publicly declared their presidential bid next year.
