Resigned Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque is not running for the Senate but is instead returning to the Lower House as a partylist representative for the 2019 midterm elections.

In the Malacañang press conference Monday, October 15, Roque said he will run under the partylist Luntiang Pilipinas which is an environmental group partylist.

He said that he is the first nominee with Ciara Sotto as the second nominee.

Roque said his decision to run for the partylist stemmed from the advice of President Rodrigo Duterte that he would not make it to the senatorial race.

In the said press conference, Roque expressed his gratitude to the members of the Malacañang Press Corps for their qcrive participation during his almost one year as the presidential spokesman.
