Go vows to be a ‘working VP’ if elected in ’22


SEN. Christopher “Bong” Go has denied speculations that he is paving the way for the candidacy of another individual through substitution, saying that he is well-decided to run for vice president in the upcoming 2022 elections.

“I can’t speak for the other candidates. Hindi po ako makapagsalita kung ano po ang magiging desisyon ng partido… As far as I am concerned, sa aking tinakbuhang posisyon, desidido na po ako,” Go said in an interview during the launch of the country’s 143rd Malasakit Center at Doña Maria D. Tan Memorial Hospital in Tangub City, Misamis Occidental, on Tuesday, October 12.

“Desisyon po ‘yan ng partido at ni Pangulong Dutertesincehe withdrew, hindi na siya tumuloy bilang kandidato as vice president. Kaya ako po ’yung pinatakbo ng partido at ni Pangulong Duterte dahil kailangan po namin na meron tayong timon na magdadala at magpapatuloy ng mga adhikain ng PDP at ng administrasyong ito,” he added.

Go said that President Duterte’s plan to retire from politics prompted him to take on the challenge to run for vice president. He added that the ruling party, PDP-Laban, has been preparing for the elections and that someone must step forward for the party and the whole administration to continue its programs and pursue further the positive change that Duterte has started.

“So I accepted the challenge to run as VP candidate po ng PDP. Ako po ay desidido at tuloy na tuloy po ito ang aking pagtakbo bilang VP,” explained Go.

Go mentioned that he is determined to continuing Duterte’s legacy, assisting the country in overcoming the pandemic and providing a better life for all Filipinos, particularly for the most vulnerable, helpless, and hopeless segments of society.

Go added that despite his vice presidential bid, he remains focused on his duties as a senator and public servant.
