Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard bearer Gilberto Teodoro Jr. has quit as chair of the administration party to focus his energies on his presidential campaign, a month before the end of the campaign period.

“Effective immediately I am resigning as chairman of our party to focus all my efforts campaigning for the presidency of the country as the official candidate of Lakas-Kampi-CMD," Teodoro said in a letter addressed to the Lakas-Kampi-CMD national executive committee.

On November 17, 2009, Teodoro was elected Lakas-Kampi-CMD chairman, four months after leaving the Nationalist People’s Coalition.

Reelectionist Misamis Oriental Gov. Oscar Moreno, the party’s vice chairman, is his likely successor.

Party officials have aired their concerns over Teodoro’s ability to handle the post of party chairman while campaigning.

Teodoro has placed fourth in national preference surveys, trailing behind his second cousin Sen. Benigno Aquino III of the Liberal Party, Sen. Manuel Villar Jr. of the Nacionalista Party, and former president Joseph Estrada of the Partido ng Masang Pilipino.

Teodoro’s Facebook page, in its latest status update, said: “Sec. Gibo Teodoro remains steadfast in winning the presidency in May 10, 2010, that is why he had to resign as chairman of the party, because of the diligent work being chairman requires. This now allows him to dedicate his full time to his campaign. Expect the campaign to go to third and fourth gear." - RJAB Jr., GMANews.TV
