MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When the Opposition Coalition launched its Senatorial Slate in Marikina recently, one of its candidates — Mar Roxas — was visibly absent. Now we know why.
Roxas has been secretly negotiating with the ruling Party, PDP-Laban for him to join the Administration’s slate in order to increase his chances of winning.
Well, it happened. Today, President Duterte all but endorsed Roxas, encouraging Filipinos to vote for him for Senator, like they should vote for singer Freddie Aguilar.
So, it has become official. Mar Roxas. PDP-Laban.
Vice President Leni Robredo, who has declared that she will lead the Opposition against Duterte, is devastated, and called Roxas a ‘balimbing’ (turncoat).
