UNITEAM senatorial candidate Harry Roque has said he shows his “jolly” side by dancing on the campaign trail.

Roque explained why he sometimes resorts to dancing when entertaining supporters tired of listening to long speeches during campaign rallies.

“Siguro naman alam na ng tao na mayroon tayong kakayahan para maglingkod sa Senado kung ang pinag-uusapan ay kaalaman sa batas,” Roque said.

Roque is a human rights lawyer, an expert on international law, a former congressman, and a former presidential spokesperson.

He was an associate professor for 15 years at the College of Law of the University of the Philippines (UP), teaching public international and constitutional law. He also served as Director of the Institute of International Legal Studies at the UP Law Center.

Roque graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Political Science. He finished his Bachelor of Law at the UP.

He said many people know his credentials and believed that his dancing during campaign sorties would not change anything he has achieved in life.

“Ang hindi nila alam ay masayahin din ako. Hindi nila alam na naintindihan ko sa mga rallies minsan nakakapagod na makinig lang sa mga walang katapusang talumpati sa entablado,” Roque said.

“Ako naman po pinapakita ko lang na ako po ay ordinaryong mamamayan din, masayahin, gusto ring magsayaw,” Roque stressed.
