LP also eyes Vilma San­tos for vice pres­i­dent

Cebu Daily News - - POLICE - /INQUIRER

SANPEDROCITY—Not only the camps of Vice Pres­i­dent Je­jo­mar Binay or Davao City Mayor Ro­drigo Duterte want Vilma San­tos-Recto as a run­ning mate in the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tions, but the Lib­eral Party (LP) it­self is con­sid­er­ing field­ing her for the sec­ond high­est gov­ern­ment post, a party mem­ber and for­mer Batan­gas con­gress­man said.

This is the rea­son why for­mer Batan­gas rep­re­sen­ta­tive To­mas Apaci­ble doubted a Duterte and San­tos-Recto tan­dem for 2016, since San­tos-Recto is also be­ing “con­sid­ered” a can­di­date by her own party.

The camp of San­tos-Recto has not com­mented on any of th­ese re­ports, as of yet.

In a phone in­ter­view yes­ter­day, Apaci­ble said chances of San­tos-Recto run­ning for Vice Pres­i­dent would be slim­mer should LP de­cide to field a “MarGrace” tan­dem.

Asked if Pres­i­dent Aquino has of­fered San­tos-Recto to run for vice pres­i­dent, Apaci­ble said, “I don’t think there are se­ri­ous talks but she is be­ing con­sid­ered, like be­ing on a short­list.”
