CALAMBA CITY, Laguna: The country’s bachelor President is still loveless but is hopeful that he will find a partner when he steps down in 2016.
During the inauguration of a Coca-Cola plant expansion project here, President Benigno Aquino 3rd, 54, once again compared his love life to sugar-free cola, saying it is “still zero.”
“I will preempt the question and say, for the record: Yes, my love life is still like Coke Zero,” he said in his speech.
“I hope that when I step down from the Presidency, it will at least go back to being like Coke Light,” he added.
In 2011, the President compared his love life to soda variants, saying it has gone from Coke regular to zero.
Since taking office last year, Aquino has broken up with several women, often blaming journalists’ prying eyes for his ruined romances.
His last reported love interest was a lawyer from the Department of Interior and Local Government.
The President’s high profile dates have also included South Korean TV personality Grace Lee, celebrity stylist Liz Uy, stockbroker Len Lopez and Valenzuela City (Metro Manila) Councilor Shalani Soledad.
Soledad has since married Pasig City (Metro Manila) Rep. Roman Romulo, son of former Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Romulo.
