Senator Bong Go announced Tuesday his withdrawal from the presidential race.
He made the announcement in a chance interview on Tuesday, November 30, on the sidelines of Bonifacio Day celebrations in San Juan City.
Go, who is vying for the presidential post with the backing of no less than President Rodrigo Duterte, said he does not want Duterte trapped in the middle ahead of the 2022 national elections.
He said his heart and mind have been contradicting with his actions.
He added that his family is also against his move to vie for the presidency.
“Ayaw rin talaga ng aking pamilya kaya naisip ko na siguro ay hindi ko pa panahon sa ngayon. Diyos lang ang nakakaalam kung kailan ang tamang panahon,” Go told media during an ambush interview.
