MNL48 announced on Monday that idol member Joyce Daita will not participate in the Third General Election due to personal reasons.
In a statement, the management and MNL48 idol members said that they understand and respect Daita’s decision.
“We are thankful for the commitment, talent and dedication she shared with us and we wish her nothing but the best in the new path she will be taking,” they said.
Last March, the management announced that Rans Rifol, Yssa Bautista, Lei Lacumba and Rowee Villaflores are not joining the upcoming elections.
The MNL48 Third General Election was supposed to take place last April but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was rescheduled on a later date.
