Is Shalani Soledad skipping Noynoy Aquino's inauguration?
GMANews.TV reports that president-apparent Sen. Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Aquino III refused to give a direct answer when he was asked if his girlfriend Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad will be attending his inauguration on June 30.
Aquino only stated: "Gusto ko 'yung family ko will be there (I want my family to be there)." He said he expects his siblings to attend his proclamation rites. Aquino disclosed these details on Sunday. He had attended a private lunch with his family to celebrate the 15th birthday of his nephew Josh, the son of his sister Kris Aquino-Yap.
Aquino is expected to be proclaimed as the new president on Tuesday. He will then be sworn into office at the end of the month.
The GMANews.TV report added that Aquino's camp has yet to decide between fashion designers JC Buendia and Paul Cabral to design the traditional barong tagalog that the senator will wear for his proclamation.
