Viber leaks: Is Isko Moreno running as president?
Screenshots of a Viber conversation supposedly with Isko Moreno’s top PR man have surfaced on social media claiming that the Manila mayor will soon announce his presidential run for 2022.
In the message thread with a man named “Julius Manila PIO,” the supposed communications guy of the politiko was telling someone to wait a few days or weeks to let Moreno formally announce his intention to vie for the presidency.
“We have a gc in Manila named The 1…Off record ha, sino ba naman may gusto pa sa mga Duterte? DDS are so 2016. We’ll announce Mayor Isko’s presidential bid soon,” the Viber texts read.
But Moreno’s actual public information officer Julius Leonen, a former reporter, denied all the texts and called them fake.
