Erap eyes another run
MANILA Mayor Joseph Estrada may seek another term to be able to continue his projects and bring back the city’s “old glory.”
The 79-year-old mayor said he needs more time to continue his projects involving cleaning and beautifying the city.
we have started,” Estrada said in a statement. “Yes, I want to restore the old glory of Manila, the ‘Pearl of the Orient’. We don’t have much time.”
Three reclamation projects are lined up in the city -- the Solar City urban center, expansion of the Manila Harbour Centre in Tondo and the New Manila Bay International Community, a residential and commercial hub.
“The city government will not spend a single centavo in these projects, so I thank President Duterte for approving all these three reclamation ventures,” Estrada said.
Estrada is currently on his second term as mayor of Manila and is eligible for a third and final term.
