Former presidential spokesperson Harry Roque appears extremely desperate to win a senatorial seat.
People seeking a position in government will do anything to win as the benefits of becoming a politician are historically coveted. Therefore, the moment election season starts, these candidates spend millions on ads and campaign materials.
They’d visit cities with the most population to garner support. Today, it is not common for them to dance to look more down-to-earth—exactly what Roque does, but his performances don’t seem to impress anyone.
He recently attended the UniTeam caravan in Ilocos Norte along with Chavit Singson and other prominent names. And just like in the proclamation rally at the Philippine Arena, Roque danced when introduced on stage as well.
He was flailing his arms in the air and doing all sorts of other dance moves. His watch even came off that made Singson laugh. People also noticed that Roque’s pants were wet. Even worse, the dancing only means he is desperate to win.
On a scale of 1 to Harry Roque, how desperate are you?

Before being appointed as Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman, Roque, had a fragrant reputation.
NO SELF-RESPECT. The great lengths this creature is willing to go through just to get votes. Did he wet his pants or pinagpapawisan singit nya? Look at Chavit's reaction. NAKAKAHIYA!!!! pic.twitter.com/D9uiaw7T62

What is ironic is that @harryroque knows more than most people about pressing issues but yet he has to resort to dancing.

Roque dancing wasn’t a pleasant sight to many.
I just saw a vid of Harry Roque dancing at a rally and almost barfed my breakfast.

Harry Roque dancing on stage campaigning confirms that he has no self-respect neither respect for the electorate.

Roque’s path to winning is a little blurry. His time as a spokesman has been controversial. He berated health workers and flipped on his principles as a human rights lawyer.
