Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 13) – Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa has withdrawn his candidacy for president in the 2022 elections.

Dela Rosa told CNN Philippines on Saturday it was the decision of his political party, Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), for him to withdraw his candidacy for president.

“I'm a good soldier. I will just follow party decisions. So, desisyon po ng partido na mag-withdraw ako. Kaya ako nag-withdraw (So, it is the decision of the party for me to withdraw. That’s why I withdrew),” said Dela Rosa.

The nation’s former top cop filed his withdrawal hours after a representative of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio submitted the substitution papers that formalized the presidential daughter’s vice presidential run in next May's polls.
