Provincial Information Officer (PIO) Winston G. Arzaga has stepped down from his Capitol post, in an apparent preparation to run for a local office in next year’s elections.

Arzaga’s resignation will take effect on Sunday, July 31, according to an announcement issued by the Provincial Information Office (PIO).

Arzaga cited personal reasons for his resignation even as he hinted at running for a local position.

“Personal ang dahilan ng kaniyang pagbibitiw sa puwesto at dahil na rin sa inaasahang muling pagsabak niya sa larangan ng pulitika sa mga susunod na araw,” the PIO statement said.

Arzaga assumed the post of PIO in July 2019 replacing Gil Acosta, Jr. who resigned from his post to run for congressman of the province’s 3rd District in the same year. Before becoming the provincial government’s spokesperson, he also served as a Board Member of the province’s first district.
