MANILA - Former Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Monday said he was open to returning to the Duterte administration after he dropped out of the senatorial race.

"I will always serve this nation in whatever capacity, but the frustrating part is I still have to rest, I still have to undergo cardiac rehab," he told ANC's Headstart.

President Rodrigo Duterte's former spokesman had to withdraw his bid for a Senate seat after undergoing a heart procedure.

Asked if he would be open to accepting an offer for a government post, Roque said: "I'm open to it, sure. It depends on what it is, of course."

"But that’s being presumptuous. I don’t even want to go there," he added.

For now, Roque said he would rejoin the law firm he left upon joining the Palace team. He is also keen on maintaining his writing and going back to teaching.
