Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Monday denied claims of PhilHealth president and chief executive officer, Ricardo Morales that he is eyeing a position at the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth).

“Pagdating naman po sa PhilHealth, well, sinasabi po ni Gen. Morales interested daw po ako. Demolition po ‘yan (When it comes to PhilHealth, Gen. Morales is claiming I’m interested in a post. That’s a demolition job). I’m not interested,” he maintained.

Earlier, Roque slammed Morales for failing to act on alleged corruption within the agency.

Meanwhile, Roque said he would rather leave it to Duterte to decide on issues besetting the state-run insurance firm.

“Iwan na lang natin iyan at hayaan na natin ang taumbayan ang maghusga, at bahala na po si Presidente diyan sa isyung iyan (Let’s leave that behind and allow the public to judge, and it will be up to the President to decide on that issue),” he said.

After Morales described as “premature” the need to hold a meeting with Duterte, Roque said there might no longer be a need to discuss the issues.
