On Thursday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque denied reports that he already resigned from his post.
“I have not resigned,” he said in a text message to reporters.
The resignation issue stemmed after President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that Roque threatened to resign after he was left in the dark about the chief executive’s hospital visit on October 3. In reports, Roque has been eyeing for a senatorial seat in the coming 2019 polls, despite the invitation of Duterte to appoint him as the Press Secretary for the revival of the Office of the Press Secretary.
Roque remained mum on the issue and addressed that he has yet to decide on the said matter at the moment.
