There are offers for him to run in 2016 as president but former Senator Manny Villar is sure that he will not run in 2016, his wife Senator Cynthia Villar said on Wednesday.

“Ewan ko. Siya naman magde-decide. Pero sa akin wala namang indication na gusto niya,” Cynthia Villar said.

The lady senator said his husband is not even thinking of vice presidency.

“Dun sa sinasabi nila na kukunin siyang Vice President, hindi naman magra-run si Senator Villar as Vice President. Never. Kaya hindi naman niya pinapansin,” Cynthia Villar said.

She also confirmed that there are offers for Manny Villar to run for president.

“Syempre ang mas gusto ko simpleng buhay, wala nang problema,” the senator said.

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said Villar is among those being considered by the Nacionalista Party (NP) to run for president.

Trillanes said he, along with Villar, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, Senator Bongbong Marcos are being considered by the NP to run in 2016.

But Cynthia Villar said that as far as she know, there are only three candidates being looked at for 2016.

“Kasi iwe-weigh mo kung ano ang alternative mo e mas gusto niya siguro yung business niya kesa Vice President. Presidency naman I think is destiny, hindi naman yun something na pinagpaplanuhan mo. ‘Pag sa ‘yo, sa ‘yo. ‘Pag hindi sa ‘yo, hindi sa ‘yo,” Cynthia Villar said.
