In a bombshell development, Senator Panfilo Lacson has just announced that he is dropping out of the 2010 presidential race because of lack of resources to wage a viable campaign given his poor showing in the surveys. Lacson mentioned specifically the lack of financial resources and the absence of a nationwide political party or machinery.
In what appeared to be an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN's Lynda Jumilla aired just a few minutes ago at TV Patrol, Senator Lacson said that his decision has nothing to do with the return of former police senior superintendent Cezar Mancao and the possible reopening of the Dacer-Corbito double murder case.
Lacson said that his decision is final.
