Arroyo rejects Lakas offer to run for House Speaker

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has rejected an offer to be the candidate of the ruling Lakas-Kampi-CMD for Speaker in the House of Representatives, according to Presidential Political Affairs Adviser Prospero Pichay Jr.

In a news briefing last Wednesday in Malacanang, Pichay said the President instead wants to play a role similar to that of Sonia Gandhi who heads a powerful congress party in India but not necessary holding a high position in government.

President Arroyo according to Pichay, would rather let the party choose from among the members of Lakas-Kampi-CMD their candidate for Speaker. Pichay said the President was cool to the party offer, despite the urging of many party members in the House of Representatives.

Arroyo, an incoming Pampanga congresswoman, heads Lakas-Kampi-CMD and has been considered top candidate for Speakership. The party has yet to agree however on who to field for the Speakership.

Pichay expressed confidence that a Lakas candidate would get the Speakership, saying they still have the number. (PIA-Bohol)
