“Akala ko madali magdesisyon, hindi pala. Hindi pala presidency at all cost kung lalamunin lang ako ng sistema. I decided not to run as president,” Escudero said in a press conference held at the Kalayaan Hall of Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan City.
“Marahil hindi ito ang tamang panahon para sa atin,” he added.
Escudero said he remains undecided who to support in the presidential and vice presidential race.
