Roxas still LP’s bet for President in 2016


The Liberal Party(LP) will field Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd as its standard-bearer in  the 2016 elections despite his low ratings in recent surveys on possible candidates for President.

According to Senate President Franklin Drilon, LP vice chairman, Roxas remains the party’s top choice for the race to Malacanang in next year’s polls.

“Our candidate [for President]is Mar Roxas,” Drilon said in an interview with Bulacan media last Thursday.

The LP, which is led by President Benigno Aquino 3rd, is yet to decide on who Roxas’ running mate will be in the 2016 elections.

Drilon said the party’s  line-up of candidates for senator is still undecided.

Based on the latest Pulse Asia survey, four percent of the respondents favored Roxas as their pick for Vice President.

In the same survey, Vice President Jejomar Binay  received the support of 29 percent of the respondents.

Binay defeated Roxas in the 2013 polls.

    Baket pa? Talo ka naman. Natalo ka na noon ni VP Binay at kayang kaya ka niyang talunin ngayon!

  2. To the LP. Please dont change your Presidential candidate so we dont see your faces beyond the 2016 election. Good riddance!

  3. Only if you cheat… or only if the morally “blind” and “deaf” will vote. Plus, the mentally “impaired”- that, sir, will give you the presidency.
    Come to think of it, that describes the lot of the so called Liberal party; the mind functioning “liberally”, acting independently of the person. Thus, explains inevitable result: alive but STUPID

    • The Filipino people will never vote for a Candidate who is not Corrupt, dahil Enjoy ang mga botante sa ganon..that’s why the Banana Republic is one of the Top Countries in the world listed in that category…whomever they choose, go ahead and it will always reflect the true Mentality of Most Filipinos..Enjoy the LIFE OF CORRUPTION…and go to HELL…Kawawa naman yong Small number of HONEST PEOPLE..dahil lagi namamayani ang Karamihan mga Magnanakaw…
