MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine President NoyNoy Aquino: always  the Best Man, never the Groom.

Aquino, a bachelor, seems to be a favorite Best Man for celebrity weddings, including those of actors Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera, as well as Senator Chiz Escudero and actress Heart Evangelista.

But how the world turns.

Aquino officially announced today that he is withdrawing his “Best Man” status for the weddings of both  Dantes and Escudero, and it’s all because of politics.

Escudero is an independent candidate for vice president, challenging Aquino’s (and his Liberal Party’s) anointed candidate, Leni Robredo.

Dantes, on the other hand, just quit his post as Commissioner of the Aquino administration’s National Youth Commission so that he could actively campaign for his chosen bets in the 2016 presidential elections. The actor is reportedly leaning towards campaigning for Senator Grace Poe, and not Aquino’s anointed presidential candidate Mar Roxas. Of course, the president is not at all happy.

Blood is thicker than water, so they say.  In this case, politics takes precedence over weddings.
