Bong Go says no

SPECIAL Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go insisted yesterday that he has no plans to run for a Senate seat in the coming elections.

Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said SAP Go insisted to him that he has no plans to run for any position after House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez urged him to join the Senate slate of the PDP-Laban in the coming 2019 elections.

Seccrtary Andanar said Go only wants to serve President Rodrigo Duterte as long as the president wanted and he is willing to serve President Digong even till death.

Go also confirms that he will attend the Senate inquiry on the Philippine Navy frigate deal but it does not mean that he is planning to run for a Senate seat even though President Duterte jokingly said he would in recent speeches.

Speaker Alvarez wanted to convince Go to join the senatorial candidates of PDP-Laban since he is very much loved by Mindanaoans.
 
Andanar said Speaker Alvarez is sure that SAP Go would win once he decided to run for a Senate seat in the 2019 polls.
