Legarda defers announcement of 2010 bid
MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) Senator Loren Legarda has “postponed” her plan to formally announce her presidential bid in the 2010 elections.
Saying that politics must be set aside because of the global financial crisis, Legarda said she would announce her plans months before the deadline for the filing of candidacy, which would be in February 2010.
“There is a time to be ambitious. This is a time to let go and to truly serve the people,” Legarda said in a speech delivered before the media on her 49th birthday.
Legarda also urged other presidential aspirants to stop politicking to help resolve the crisis that had resulted in massive unemployment.
“I call on our public leaders today to set aside their narrow ambitions, the disease of presidentialitis, the quest for self-glory and self-gratification so that, with God’s help, we can work to overcome the current crisis,” said Legarda.
Legarda however implied that she was postponing only the announcement and not her plan to become the “captain of the ship.”
“Ako ay handa na maglingkod bilang pangulo ng ating matagal nang naghihirap na sambayanan. Ngunit para mamulitika ngayon ay hindi patas at hindi tama para sa mga taong nawawalan ng trabaho [I am ready to serve as President of our long-suffering nation. But to engage in politics now is not fair and not right for those who have lost their jobs],” said Legarda.
She said she was not discounting the possibility of a Legarda-Escudero tandem, especially since surveys have shown that this was a favorable team-up.
“Eventually we will be together and let the numbers speak. The Loren-Chiz is a runaway 40 percent tandem,” said Legarda.
However, when asked if Legarda saw Vice President Noli De Castro a strong opponent in the 2010 polls, she said she was not threatened at all.
As for Senator Manuel Villar, who is also being groomed to run for the top post, Loren said: “Magbasa ka ng numero at numero ang magpapakita kung sino ang gigiba kanino [You read the numbers and the numbers will tell you who will beat who].”
