Manila Mayor Isko Moreno quit the National Unity Party (NUP), ahead of plans to join a new political party, Aksyon Demokratiko.
Moreno signed a letter of resignation dated Wednesday, August 4, addressed to Masbate 1st District Representative Narciso Bravo Jr., NUP secretary-general. Moreno’s chief of staff Cesar Chavez sent Rappler a copy of the letter.
“This is to respectfully tender my resignation as vice-chairman for political affairs and as member of the National Unity Party,” said Moreno.
The letter was signed the day before Moreno was set to take his oath as Aksyon member. But the oath-taking was postponed to a later date, with Chavez saying Moreno wanted to focus his attention on “chaos” ensuing in Manila vaccination sites due to large crowds flocking there. – Rappler.com
