MANILA, Jan. 4 — President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will never abuse office in order to win the congressional race in Pampanga.

Presidential Economic Spokesman Prof. Gary Olivar emphasized this during a media briefing this afternoon in Malacanang.

Olivar said the President has already assured that she would separate her Presidency from her candidacy and never abuse her office to gain undue advantage in the congressional race for the second district of Pampanga. Besides, Olivar said, it was certain that the opposition would make sure that the President did this.

In the first place, Olivar said, the President decided to run due to the strong clamor of her provincemates.

“If you have this kind of clamor that initiated this decision on her part, I think the need for her to abuse office in order to win in Pampanga is minimized. It is not even a real option for her obviously,” Olivar said. (PNA)
