Senator Raffy Tulfo, despite being a frontrunner in recent surveys for the 2028 presidential elections, on Thursday said he is not keen on seeking the highest elective position.

At the most, Tulfo said he is likely to seek reelection in 2028.

“Palaging tinatanong yan sakin ng mga kaibigan ko, kung ako raw ay tatakbo sa presidential election. Pag sinabi kong hindi, walang maniniwala, pag sinabi kong oo, walang maniniwala,” he said in an interview with ANC’s Headstart.

“Ito lang masasabi ko, wala sa utak ko ang pagtakbo as president sa 2028. Naka-focus ako ngayon sa Senado. And I’m enjoying being a senator. Sa 2028, reelection at the most ang pwedeng gagawin ko,” he added.

Last month, Tulfo and Vice President Sara Duterte were statistically tied as presidential frontrunners in the Pulse Asia survey.

A separate poll conducted by the OCTA Research group showed Tulfo will win by a significant margin of 10 to 15 points against Duterte if the presidential polls were conducted now.

“The Tulfos in elective politics are still new. People might be willing to give them a chance owing to their prior record of addressing their concerns,” Pulse Asia president Ronald Holmes said in an earlier interview on the appeal of the Tulfo brothers among Filipino voters.
