PAGE EIGHT pinion Still Prevails That President May Run By RODOLFO L. N'AZAKKNO United Press stiff Correspondent MANILA,.April 15. (UP) — Wlio will succeed Manuel Luiz Quezon as president, of the Commonwealth of the Philippines when his six- year term expires Nov. 15, 1941. has become a puzzle even lo usually K-ell Informed observers of th? country's politics. • The commonwealth's constllu- tion forbids a presldenlial re-election, but proposed constitutional amendments, to be submitted In ,;jnne to n national plebiscite, in, elude one allowing n second term lor the chlel executive. Jusl why the amendment on reflection was projwsed is easily explained: the overwhelming major- liy of the 98 national assemblymen •want Quezon to reinnln In Mah- canan. Paradoxically, It would seem, Quezon has repeatedly stated publicly he Is not n candidate for re-election. 'Hence, the puzzle. On the question of Ihe presidency, one.thing Is admitted as axiomatic: that . if Quezon wants ta succeed himself, he will. Nobody in the country Is considered qualified, to give him a light at the polls ,The loosely organized opposition ( probably will name a candidate *s a matter' of form. • ,. Quezon May Reconsider There are certain Informed qunr- lers which do not seriously regard Quezon's oft-repealed disavowal of intention to succeed himself. These quarters aver that on recent occasions Quezon Intimated he might be obliged under certain circumstances to run for a second term. These quarters point but that temperamental Don Manuel, with adequate provocation, has intmy times changed his mind on a moment's notice. A veteran Nnclonnllstn party irrnn. who refuser! to be quoted, said he asked the president to run for re-election nnd the president asked if Ihr; people would really like him to stay in Malocanan. Informed party men said that if the Nacionalistn parly convention should decide tb launch Quezon's candidacy, even against his will he would have lo be president again. And II Is not unlikely this will happen, party men added. Thnt Is »hy (lie constitutional ban on re-election , Is being removed they argued. On the premise Hint Quezon will . not be a candidate, Vicc'PresHonl Sergio Osmena has launched hh candidacy Osmena emphasized. thM he would {filrf'paiidldijiyoiiiyiir it should tie -Impossible • To 1 persuade the president-to .-accept a second term. • . , To Remain Neutral Commenting, on. Osmena's conditional candidacy. Quezon reiterated he Is not a candidate He was non-committal, however, on Osmena's candidacy, and said he would rot, support the candidacy of anyone for Ihe presidency. "I expect the people to make their own choice uninfluenced by any preference on my part because I cannot and will not assume any responsibility for the policies of 1 my successor," the president said Let every Filipino make up his' ntmd as to who fa the best man to carry the tremendous burden of leading our people in these mosl critical limes."
