SAYING it is too early to think about politics, business tycoon Manuel V. Pangilinan on Tuesday parried off media questions about his plans for 2016 amid reports Vice President Jejomar Binay wants him as VP for his presidential bid.
“Maaga pa masyado para masabi [It’s still too early to say],” Pangilinan told reporters after the Asean Business Awards.
“I’m good friends with Mr. Binay, but I think [it is still too early to talk about it],” Pangilinan said.
Binay earlier said he wants a businessman like Pangilinan as his running mate to focus on issues regarding business and the economy.
