MANILA Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said Saturday she will seek a fresh six-year term by running in the presidential elections next May, reneging on her promise last year not to stand for election.

"I will run for president in the May 2004 elections," Arroyo said in a speech before about 50,000 people in her hometown in the Clark Economic Zone in Angeles City about 83 kilometers northwest of Manila. (Kyodo News)
