Former senator Mar Roxas doesn’t want to be called either an administration or opposition senator if he wins his comeback bid to the Senate.

In an interview over dzMM radio Tuesday (January 15), Roxas said he would rather focus his efforts as a senator on moving the country forward.

“Ako hindi ko gusto yung mga labels eh. Ang para sa akin is ano ba ang contribution mo para saan ka ba? Hindi naman puwedeng no ka lang nang no,” he said.

Roxas, who is closely identified with the Aquino administration and the Liberal Party, denied any hand in the smear campaigns launched against President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration.

“Una, hindi ako nasa likod nun at ako ay tumatakbo bilang Mar Roxas. Pinagpasiyahan ko ito sa kung ano ang maco-contribute ko hindi para manira, hindi para bumanat pero para makatulong para lumikha ng trabaho para gumanda ang buhay ng ating bansa,” he said.

Roxas said his track record as a politiko shows he can work with different Presidents even if he didn’t necessarily support them.
