Vice President Jejomar Binay said through his twitter account on Thursday, “President Aquino has been quoted as expressing openness to listen to the people on the matter of seeking another term.”
“He added that it does not automatically mean he will seek another term. I respect the statement of the President,” the Vice President said.
VP Binay has earlier confirmed his candidacy in the coming 2016 presidential election.
“Any national leader would want to hear the voice of the people on issues that will have far-reaching consequences,” Binay added. “What is important is that the voice he hears is an authentic and genuine voice, not one manufactured by quarters with vested interests who are driven mainly by self-preservation.”
“We also need to keep our focus on pursuing our goal of improving the lives of the people for the remainder of the President’s term and beyond.”
On the other hand, Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel Roxas II already expressed that he is in favor for President Aquino’s second term.
There are three main factors why the Filipino people from one of the largest social networking site in the world want PNoy to have a second term. Those three are military modernization, infrastructure boom and economic growth.
