Senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan has resigned as Liberal Party (LP) president after holding himself accountable for the defeat of Otso Diretso in the elections.

“As campaign manager for the Otso Diretso slate, I was unable to ensure our victory in the elections and I therefore assume full responsibility for the outcome and hold myself primarily accountable for this defeat and have tendered my resignation as president of the LP effective June 30, 2019,” Pangilinan said in a news release.

Pangilinan already handed his resignation letter to LP Chairperson Vice President Leni Robredo.
