Bayani Fernando leaves MMDA to run for President in Election 2010

Political Affairs Undersecretary Oscar Inocentes is the new MMDA interim chief. This was announced yesterday by Press Secretary Cerge Remonde, as Bayani Fernando resigned from his post last Friday to pursue his run for President in Election 2010 under an Independent party.

Earlier, Fernando left the administration’s Lakas-Kampi-CMD after Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr was selected as its standard bearer for 2010.

He lamented that no one spoke to him, not even President Arroyo. According to him, he is no longer interested in a party that does not value loyalty.

“There is no more reason to stay in a political party from which one cannot expect anything,” the former MMDA chief said. “Noon pa, ako ay interesado lang sa pagkapangulo. Di ko maitutulak ang aking advocacy sa ibang position (From the beginning I have been interested only in the presidency. I cannot pursue my advocacy from a lower post),” he added.

As of this moment, there are still on going talks as who will be his running mate.

“Maraming pakikipag-usap, iba’t ibang source sa ibang kandidato. (Pero) wala pang maihahayag ngayon, wala pang interesting na bagay (Talks are ongoing with camps of other candidates. But I have nothing interesting to report yet),” he said in an interview on dzBB radio.

Meanwhile, Inocentes is a former Quezon City judge and later served as a member of the GSIS board of trustees.
