It is evident that President Benigno Aquino III isn’t decided yet on who he will be endorsing in the coming 2016 national elections because he’s been meeting with different personalities, his recent one, with Senator Francis Escudero.
Senator Francis Escudero admits to having a meeting with the President. Escudero, with fellow Senator Grace Poe met up with PNOY last Thursday in Malacanang but clarified that President Aquino had no clear message, just hinting of a possible united ticket for the said elections.
There was also no mention of him declaring DILG Sec. Mar Roxas as the official standard bearer of the Liberal Party, except that he wants Poe and Escudero to meet with him.
In a radio interview, Escudero said that it’s a clear sign that PNOY doesn’t have anyone in mind just yet because he’s still talking to them. The veteran Senator added that if PNOY has already someone in mind, what’s the point of him meeting up with other potential candidates, especially those outside his political party.
