Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas has spoken with Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, a member of the Nacionalista Party who's eyeing a vice presidential run in 2016.
Roxas didn't go into the details of his meeting with Cayetano that happened on Wednesday but indicated that the senator had been an ally of President Benigno Aquino III, the LP chairman.
"Halos walo sa 10 na ipinaglaban ni Pangulong PNoy, anti-GMA (former President and incumbent Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo), anti-corruption, kasama rin naman po si Senador Alan," Roxas said.
The LP, however, continues to woo Naga Representative Leni Robredo to be Roxas' running mate in 2016.
The widow of former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo has met Aquino and Roxas to discuss the proposed vice presidential run.
She, however, has yet to make a decision on the matter.
Robredo had been reluctant to accept the offer, saying she was not ready and that her daughters were against running for a national post. —NB, GMA News
