Senator Mar Roxas formally accepted the offer of Sen. Noynoy Aquino to become his running mate in the 2010 presidential elections.
“Taos-puso ko pong tinatanggap ang hamon na isulong ang tunay na reporma sa ating bansa. Taos-puso ko pong tinatanggap ang responsibilidad na maging kabalikat ni Noynoy sa kanyang laban para sa pagbabago” he said. The acceptance of the offer was held yesterday morning at Club Filipino, San Juan.
Meanwhile, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan announced the withdrawal of his vice presidential bid in the 2010 elections to give way and support the tandem of Aquino and Roxas.
