Presidential sisters endorsed nobody for 2016

President Aquino yesterday clarified that his siblings have not endorsed anyone for the 2016 elections.

He was reacting to earlier reports that the Aquino sisters are rooting for Vice President Jejomar C. Binay to succeed him in 2016.

“The gist of their statement was, ‘If he can continue what our brother started, then thank you, that would be good,’ which is not exactly the same as you should continue,” Aquino clarified.

“They were asked to react on a statement that there should be someone who should continue the reforms we started,” the President said.

Meanwhile, the President said that if he’s given the chance to take a glimpse at his parents, he envisions them to be smiling at him for what he has done for the country.

“The best compliment they could give is to smile at me and that’s it,” Aquino said in an interview over TV5.

The President said it is not his parents’ style to give further compliments, adding that his parents expect him to do the right thing.

Aquino remembered that when he was in grade school and he was number three in his class, his father asked when he would be number one.

“Both of them guided me well and pushed me to do the best,” Aquino said.

On August 21, the nation will commemorate the death of his father, former Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., while the death anniversary of his mother, former President Corazon C. Aquino, was observed last August 1.
