Mar Roxas willing to give way to Noynoy presidential run

MANILA – Senator Mar Roxas said Saturday that he is willing to slide down to running as vice-president if his best friend, Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, decides to seek the presidency and gets the support of the Liberal party.

“Ako naman po ay masunurin din. Nakikinig sa tao at nakikinig sa tawag ng panahon,” Roxas told radio dzMM when asked what he will do if Aquino decides to run and gets the support of the people and their political party.

The senator confirmed that he and Aquino will meet this weekend to discuss the possibility of running as partners in 2010. He said there have been ideas of a Mar-Noynoy tandem even before Aquino’s mother, former President Corazon Aquino, died.

“Dahil sa magkapartido kami, isa iyan sa mga nakukunsidera. Kung may pagbabago, siguro si Senator Noynoy lang ang makakapagsabi (Since we belong to the same party, [us running in tandem] is one of the considerations. Only Senator Noynoy can say if he had changed his mind),” Roxas said.

Roxas said the weekend meeting between him and Aquino will be succeeded with more meetings
