MANILA -- Manila Mayor Isko Moreno will run for Philippine president next year, his chief of staff Cesar Chavez said on Tuesday, bringing the former actor into a race that already includes a boxer-turned-senator.

Moreno will make an announcement on Wednesday via a "special broadcast" on various radio and TV stations, Chavez said.

The 46-year-old Moreno was elected mayor of the city of Manila in 2019, defeating former President Joseph Estrada, under whom he had served as vice mayor. Moreno had also sat on the city council. In 2016, he made an unsuccessful bid for the senate.

The chief of staff of presidential aspirant Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has resigned from his team ahead of the filing of certificate of candidacy.

Cesar Chavez on Wednesday said his main reason was to return to radio broadcasting, but Moreno said the reason given to him had something to do with health and family.

"Ayaw ko mag-interfere kapag pamilya na [I don't interfere when it comes to family], I respect that," Moreno said in a media forum.

The resignation of Chavez took effect on Oct. 1, the first day of COC filing.
