In an interview on ANC’s Headstart, Drilon explained, “All I can say is the spin masters are having their day. There is no such thing, honest. I am a member of the executive committee of the Liberal Party. There has been no discussion on that.” Anc. Yahoo
The senator also added: “At the end of the day, the party will be influenced in its decision by the decision of President Noynoy [Aquino]. The President, being the chairman of our party, would have a very great say on who the standard-bearer will be. At this point, there is no such talk.” Anc.Yahoo
