Politiko Travels: Mar Roxas is everywhere
Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas, reportedly the “sentimental” presidentialcandidate of Liberal Party in 2016, has been a busy traveler in recent weeks.
Based on various photos on social media, Roxas has been spotted travelling to several provinces, including Benguet, Zamboanga, Bohol, Albay and Cebu, on official business. His usual entourage includes close friends Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda and Budget Secretary Florencio Abad.
The frequent provincial trips of the DILG Secretary came amid a surge in his voter preference rating in a recent presidential survey and the corruption anomalies implicating his bitter rival, Vice President Jejomar Binay. Although he has yet to officially throw his hat in the 2016 ring, LP stalwarts have claimed that Roxas will be the administration bearer in upcoming presidential polls.
