Manuel “Mar” Roxas II.Aquino said he is confident that if he wins as president and something untoward happens to him, the government will be left in good hands under Roxas.”Gusto ko iliwanag, sa akin kandidato ko kaisa-isa kong partner sa laban na ito, si Mar, dahil sigurado akong ipagpatuloy niya kung sakaling di ko kayanin I want to make it clear that I have only one candidate and one partner in this fight, and that is Mar, because I am certain he will finish what I have begun,” he said.
Estrada denies Binay betrayed him
MASBATE CITY, Philippines—Deposed president Joseph “Erap” Estrada has denied accusations his running mate Makati Mayor Jejomar “Jojo” Binay betrayed him and that the latter is really for survey leader Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
“I don’t believe so. I personally chose Mayor Binay to be my running mate because I believe in him,” Estrada, who is seeking reelection, said during a campaign sortie here Monday afternoon.
With less than two weeks to go before Election Day, the visit was Estrada’s second to this island province, a known election hotspot that lies on the fringes of the Bicol Region.
