>> Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Noynoy Aquino has declared his presidential bid for year 2010:

"Bayang Pilipinas, tatakbo po ako sa pagkapangulo sa darating na halalan. Itutuloy natin ang laban (Philippines, I will run for president in the coming elections. We will continue the fight)," Aquino declared in Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan City
Everybody have speculated this to happen and for who will be his running mate is another declaration to be made hopefully soon.

Aquino, meanwhile, said he is waiting for Senator Mar Roxas to decide on his request to become his running mate in 2010.

"Our party president (Roxas) has led us in difficult times. I've offered the slot to him. I'm awaiting his decision," Aquino said when asked who will be his running mate.

Roxas, the Liberal Party's (LP) supposed standard bearer, decided to withdraw amid clamors for Aquino's run for the presidency.

The LP president, who was present during Aquino's declaration, declined to comment on his possible vice-presidential bid.

However, in a previous interview over radio dzMM, Roxas said that Aquino had asked him to be his running mate.

"Sabi ko sa kanya, kung kalmado ka na... Nakapag-retreat ka na at gusto mo pa rin [akong tumakbong vice-president], mag-usap tayo ulit (I told him that if you have cleared your mind. After your retreat and you still want me to run for vice-president, we will talk again)," Roxas said during the radio interview.

He was relating to a conversation during one of the meetings he had with Aquino before he declared his withdrawal from the 2010 presidential race.
