Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano on Thursday said he would adhere to the decision of the Magdalo executive committee on his possible senatorial run in the 2019 midterm elections.

“I am grateful for Senator Trillanes’ trust and belief on my qualifications, especially given the importance of the position in question and the responsibilities it bears,” Alejano said.

The lawmaker’s statement comes after Senator Antonio Trillanes IV bared that they are pushing for Alejano’s senatorial bid.

“Kaya natin tinutulak si Congressman Alejano sa pagtakbo sa senador itong 2019 ay para may titindig pa rin laban sa mga pang-aabuso nito Duterte,” Trillanes said.

“On my part, I believe that the cause we started in 2003 for the country is a lifetime commitment; and I strive to always act in line with the principles Magdalo has stood for,” Alejano said.

“Henceforth, whatever decision the group will have, I will adhere to the wisdom of the body,” he added.

Alejano said the Magdalo executive committee is currently in the process of deciding their degree of participation in the 2019 elections.

They are also awaiting the results of the ongoing consultation among Magdalo chapters and other allied groups nationwide, he added. /je
