Transcript of Ambush Interview with Senate President Franklin M. Drilon at the Iloilo Convention Center Inauguration Ceremony

Q: Reaction on news of Senator Poe's upcoming candidacy

SPFMD: I read in some news report today that Senator Poe is set to announce her candidacy on September 16. That's according to media reports. If indeed true, that validates my assertion before that the Liberal Party should start looking for a vice president, because Senator Poe has decided to run for president. Therefore, we should intensify our efforts to look for a partner for Secretary Roxas.

Q: How will it impact on Secretary Roxas? Is the administration worried that it will split the administration supporters?

SPFMD: No. We are not worried. From the very start I have always said that we strengthen our candidate, Secretary Roxas, rather than rely on strength of any other person. There is no change in plan. We will continue to build Secretary Roxas.
