Dumami pa Poe: Roxas VP list growing
The list for Mar Roxas’ potential running mate is growing now that Senator Grace Poe is finally off the table.
According to Caloocan Rep. Egay Erice, Aquino Cabinet members such as Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and Internal Revenue Secretary Kim Henares are also in the running to be Roxas’ vice presidential bet.
Erice made the revelation during an ANC Headstart interview on Friday, September 18.
“Binibigyan natin ng panahon si Roxas para magmuni-muni’t mag-isip. Marami pa naman (ang pwede niyang maging running mate),” said the solon, who sits as LP’s vice chairman for political affairs.
De Lima and Henares thus joins Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, Batangas Governor Vilma Santos and Senator Alan Peter Cayetano in the pool of Roxas’ potential running mates.
