for mayor this 2019.

Ro­driguez said that he has been ap­proached by lead­ers, lo­cal busi­ness­men and sec­toral groups to re­claim the city’s lead­er­ship, of­fer­ing both man­power and re­sources. He said that th­ese peo­ple are all sad­dened by the on­go­ing sit­u­a­tion in the city and are dis­sat­is­fied by the cur­rent lead­er­ship.

“I was sad­dened by how the legacy pro­grams that we have painstak­ingly placed for the city were all set aside,” Ro­driguez added.

Ro­driguez, a stal­wart mem­ber of Lib­eral Party (LP), is be­ing en­dorsed by his party and long-time fol­low­ers and sup­port­ers to join the may­oralty race as sub­sti­tute to one Eu­gene Diaz, who filed a cer­tifi­cate of can­di­dacy un­der the op­po­si­tion ban­ner.

It could be re­called that LP Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Que­zon City Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jose Christo­pher Bel­monte called on Ro­driguez to “con­tinue his lead­er­ship of this vi­brant city and to re­con­sider his ear­lier de­ci­sion not to run in the 2019 elec­tions.”

The Com­elec’s dead­line for sub­sti­tu­tion of can­di­dates who do not share the same sur­names is on No­vem­ber 29, 2018.
