Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto will not be running for any government position in the next election. This is according to a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, as rumors have circulated that she is one of the prospects for the Vice President position.
“After this time, wala po akong political plan… andito ako sa Balayan regarding scholarship; this is my focus now. So hindi ko po priority yan, para pag-isipin o magplano regarding a national position,” she told Radyo Inquirer.
She also added that she does not entertain formal dialogues about her running for Vice President even though there are people who are convincing her to run for a higher position.
At present, she is now on her last term as the Governor of Batangas and Gov. Vi said, “Malaki ang utang na loob ko sa Batangueño na ako ay pinagkatiwalaan at nakatapos po ng siyam na taon. At ngayon po ay nasa huling termino na ako bilang Gobernador. Maraming maraming salamat po sa tiwala.”
