Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas will kiss even President Benigno Aquino’s ass just so he could be the next president of the country.
Blindly shielding his President against accusation of massive graft and corruption in the Aquino administration, Roxas said the unconstitutional Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) of President Aquino is a hallmark of good governance, a symbol of the President’s “Daang Matuwid” program of administration.
The Liberal party of President Aquino said it would field Roxas in the 2016 presidential derby.
The opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), which has anointed Vice President Jejomar Binay as its standard bearer, expressed shock at the statement and chided Roxas for defending President Aquino on the discredited DAP.
“It is shocking that a presumed presidential candidate will continue to press for a program that a unanimous Supreme Court has declared patently unconstitutional, said UNA.
