MANILA — Department of Transportation (DOTR) Undersecretary Cesar Chavez confirmed on Wednesday that he is being considered for the position of Press Secretary, after lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles resigned Tuesday.

"I was informed that I am being considered for the position. Yes, I was informed," he told ANC's "Headstart" but refused to say who reached out to him.

"I'm even surprised to be included in the list, there are more qualified, highly qualified for that position. I expressed no interest in that position, I did not apply for the position."

The official said he is "thinking about" the offer and discussing the matter with his family.

But asked if he wanted to be Press Secretary, Chavez said, "There are many railway projects in the country that I think I can be more of service to the country if I focus on the railway sector."
