“At this time a candidacy for governance would severely hurt my family. I have always been willing to serve my country regardless of the circumstances, but this time it is different because my actions will place the greatest sacrifice in third parties; my wife and my children, ”said Bernier.
“The country is also served from the citizen's fulfillment of duty. There is always a margin of doubt when making these kinds of decisions, ”he added.
However, Bernier left the door open to aspire to a seat in politics in the future.
“Maybe I regret it or I am wrong, but it will be in favor of my children and my family. Later, only God knows but today the bell that I have to run is that of my family, ”he said.
Earlier this week, El Nuevo Día published that Carmen Yulín Cruz offered the former secretary of state to be a duplicate on the ballot of the next elections.
The mayor of San Juan admitted that in February she told Bernier that she would aspire to the Washington-based police station if he decided to seek the governorship again.
