Roxas, left, and Aquino

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) –  Initially one of the leading contenders in the 2010 Philippine presidential elections, now Secretary of Interior and Local Governments Mar Roxas slid down to become a vice-presidential candidate in order to make way for  then Senator NoyNoy Aquino. Roxas was was defeated by Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay by the narrowest margin in the history of the Fifth Republic.

In the last 5 years, Roxas has been one of Aquino’s staunchest supporters and apologists, often sacrificing his own reputation and integrity just to make Aquino look good in the eyes of the Filipino people.

Now, Aquino is reportedly mulling on courting Senators Grace Poe and Francis Escudero to run as a tandem under the Liberal Party  in the 2016 presidential elections, as the ratings of presumptive standard bearer Roxas fail to improve.

Binay is the opposition party’s standard bearer.

Upon hearing of Aquino’s plan for the party, Roxas screamed an expletive, the same one that he was heard saying at a campaign rally in 2010. (The Adobo Chronicles is a family-oriented news site, so we can’t print the expletive.)

“I have been betrayed,” Roxas said. “After all that I’ve done for Aquino, this is what I get,” he added. A very religious man, Roxas likened himself to Jesus being betrayed by Judas.

In his frustration, Roxas told reporters that if he is not annointed as the party’s standard bearer, he will immediately resign as Local Governments secretary and work for Binay’s political campaign. “Let’s see who will have the last laugh,” Roxas said.


  1. Jul 19 15 – The time has come with sadness for Mar Roxas to set aside friendship and focus on the general welfare of the country. He is aware of the corruption of Jojo Binay while Grace Poe must be smiling prematurely without getting notice the danger of the country and of her person will get into should she become president due to popularity. Pnoy was so amateur in entering into a pact with MILF without regard to the general welfare of Muslim Mindanao, still relying with suspended Purisima and his overconfidence to Butch Abad who had caused most of his trouble. His loyalty to his friends was indispensable despite of public outcry over negligence, incompetence and shortcoming of some of his cabinet secretaries. Mar Roxas is well prepared and most reliable among the presidential aspirants and the Liberal Party will support him and will junk Pnoy for obvious reasons.


  2. I think P-Noy should annoint Mar. If P-Noy does not do it, it would be better for him to put his hand off the Liberal Party and allow the party to proclaim the candidate it wants to become its standard bearer.
