The first time I met with Chiz Escudero was in August 2009. There was a bloggers Meet and Greet Chiz Escudero event. I asked him straight out during that first meet & greet, if he was running for the presidency.Without hesitation, Chiz Escudero answered, â€œyesâ€.
At the time, I was quite impressed at how determined he was & how confident he was that he can lead the change for our Philippines.
We all know what has happened since then:
- Cory died.
- Mar Roxas dropped out of the race, and
- Noynoy Aquino is now the Liberal Partyâ€™s candidate.
Then all of a sudden, Chiz Escudero quit his party, the Nationalist Peopleâ€™s Coalition (NPC). Like a lot of people, like many of his supporters, I was confused.
So last Saturday (November 7), I attended a bloggersâ€™ meeting with Chiz Escudero at Annabelâ€™s in Quezon City. I was excited to go as I had sooooooo many questions to ask Chiz about his plans on the presidency.
I was expecting to get a concrete answer. To be honest, I was surprised. Last Saturday, I saw a different Chiz from the one who met bloggers last August. Iâ€™m not sure if he was acting or if he is just confused at the moment. It wasnâ€™t the same Chiz I got to admire during the first meet.
When I asked him the same question I did during the first meet and greet, about his plans to run, the answer I got was unfortunately, â€œnot sure yet.â€
Chiz Escudero said that he doesnâ€™t know and will still need to decide. He mentioned heâ€™ll decide on November 15 and will share with us his decision come December 1.
