Trillanes for President?
Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV yesterday admitted he is one of the four possible presidential contenders of the Nacionalista Party (NP) in the May 2016 national elections.
Trillanes, who has earlier declared his intention to run for higher office, said the matter is still being discussed by the NP party, led by its president, former Senator Manuel “Manny” Villar.
“Apat po yung tinitignan ng Nacionalista Party. Andyan na po si Sen. Manny Villar, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, Sen. (Ferdinand) Bongbong Marcos, and myself,” Trillanes told reporters in an interview when asked about the party’s possible standard-bearer in the upcoming national elections.
But he said he is leaving it to the NP leadership to decide whether to field its own standard bearer in 2016.
While Villar and Marcos have yet to declare their intention to run for higher public office, Trillanes and Cayetano have publicly announced their intention to run for president.
