Former senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas files his Certificate of Candidacy (COC) for Senator in next year’s election.

The former Liberal Party president withdraw from most public engagements after losing to President Rodrigo Duterte in the 2016 elections.

However, he cleared out that he has moved on since then.

“Well, unang-una ako naka-move on na ako. Kaya naging mahirap itong desisyon na ito ay dahil hindi basta-bastang parang patuloy lang. Ito yung gawain ko kahapon, ito yung gawain ko itong lingong, ito yung gagawin ko next week. E talagang lumabas na ako ng arena,” The Philippine Star quoted him as saying.

He highlighted that he is willing to serve the country once again.

“Masarap ang buhay ng retirado. Feeling ko tulad ng sinabi ko beterano na ako, nagsilbi na ako sa World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War. Pero palagay ko, kung mayroon mga mananakop na pumasok dito sa bansa natin kahit beterano na ako lalaban pa rin ako,” he said.

“Di pa tapos ang trabaho, may mga problema pa. May mga maitutulong ka pa. Kaya sinabi ko na kung pakiwari ng mga kababayan natin na makakatulong pa ako handa ako,” Roxas added.

He ended his speech by saying, “I have no quit in me… and I’m not going to quit on our country.”

Before ending his speech he repeated what he said on Monday when he announced his bid to run:

Roxas is a former member of the Upper House from 2004 to 2010.
