MANILA, Philippines—(UPDATE 2) Senator Benigno “Noynoy”Aquino III has again deferred his decision on joining the presidential race, saying he still needed to pray for “discernment and divine guidance.”

Aquino issued the statement at a press conference Wednesday, a day after Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas made a surprise announcement that he was backing out of the 2010 presidential contest to give way to Aquino.

But Aquino vowed never to turn his back on the challenge.

“I’ll never turn my back on this fight. And I hope you’ll join me in this fight,” he said.

Aquino said he needed to go into a spiritual retreat this weekend to seek divine guidance on his 2010 plans.

“As I pray for discernment and divine guidance, I urge you to pray with me so that you too can assess your own readiness to take part in the difficult struggle ahead. We are in this together,” he said.
