MANILA, Philippines — (UPDATE 3) His voice cracking in front of the TV cameras, an emotional former Public Works Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. withdrew from the presidential race, on Sunday, citing the lack of funds to mount a nationwide campaign.

Speaking at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, a teary-eyed Ebdane also hinted that some people who had promised to support him failed to fulfill their word.

“I have decided. I will not run for the Presidency…Much as I wanted to serve and get the job done, the realities of a presidential electoral contest have forced me to reassess my bid,” Ebdane told hundreds of his supporters who had gathered at the Bahay ng Alumni in UP Diliman.

The former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief was expected to announce his running mate but instead revealed that he was bowing out of the presidential race.

“I realized that I cannot wage a decent presidential campaign without sufficient funds. Ugly as it may sound, lack of funds can unmake a viable presidential run,” Ebdane said.

“After much reflection, I have decided to formally end my presidential bid. I have come to this decision to spare my friends, supporters and my family from the agony and burden of joining a fight which we cannot win,” he added.
