Inquirer.net reports that Vice President Jejomar Binay was asked for his reaction to Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Mar Roxas' "I have no plans of running for president in 2016" declaration. Binay quipped, "Is that so? A lot of you were surprised that I didn’t act like a hypocrite because I really have plans. Those are the same lines of others in the past." He then added, "That is his position as of now."
However, many pundits speculate that Roxas would most definitely be President Noynoy Aquino's pick for the 2016 polls. In any case, as the report noted, Roxas, in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer over the weekend, said: "I can honestly, sincerely, absolutely, transparently tell you that I have no plans."
