Vilma Santos not interested in VP post; may run for Congress

Batangas Governor Vilma Santos on Tuesday said she is not interested in running for vice president in the 2016 elections but might consider running for representative of Batangas province.

"Wala pang pormal na usapan pero hindi ko inaambisyon 'yan," Santos told reporters, referring to the vice presidency. "Wala po 'yan sa plano ko, hindi naman ako interesado."

"Batangas ang nagbigay sa akin ng tiwala, Batangas ang gusto kong pagsilbihan," she added.

A multi-awarded actress, Santos said there is no final decision yet and bared she is also planning to return to the show business.

"Nasa last term na ako hindi pa namin napag-uusapan kung ano ang plano. I may consider running for congresswoman of Batangas. Wala pang pinal kasi I miss doing films din," she said.

Meanwhile, Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo said there is no formal offer yet for her to be the running mate of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, who was endorsed by President Benigno Aquino III last week.

"Hindi naman po 'yan pinag uusapan," said Robredo, widow of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, when asked about it during the gathering of Roxas supporters in Greenhills, San Juan.

Santos and Robredo were among those being floated as possible running mate of Roxas in 2016, although some members of the ruling Liberal Party said they are still wooing neophyte Senator Grace Poe. —KBK/ALG, GMA News
