"Certainly I would be lying if I don't consider it," Gordon told a virtual forum of the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry when asked if he is planning to run for president in 2022.

The Philippines needs a "capable leader that will provide sustainability, that will provide sincerity and the inspiration to make the people believe in themselves and work together as a people. Yan ang kailangan natin," he said.


"My name is Dick, but I am not a -tator," he said.

Gordon who hails from Olongapo said his track record in the executive and legislative branches, as well as his humanitarian work would speak for his capabilities as a leader.

Prior to being a senator, Gordon served as mayor of Olongapo City from 1980 to 1986 and from 1988 to 1993. As chairman and administrator of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority from 1992 to 1998, he transformed the former U.S. military base into a logistics and manufacturing hub.
