So he was finally tempted! 40 days (apparently, it was on the 40th day that The Temptation of Jesus happened, Matthew 4:1-11 but of course Jesus wasn’t tempted) after former president Cory Aquino was laid to rest. Senator Noynoy (Benigno Simeon Aquino III), ex-president’s only son and expected to continue his parents advocacy (yes, even this too soon) has finally announced that he will be running for the 2010 presidential race.
In a much awaited announcement after persuasion from various groups for the young Aquino to run for president. Earlier developments has prompted Senator Mar Roxas (Noynoy’s party mate and supposed to be Liberal Party (LP) standard bearer for the 2010 election) to withdraw and sacrifice his bid for presidential race, in spite of the effort he has given to his campaign just to give-way for Sen. Noynoy as growing numbers of out-cry and petitioners calling Aquino to run for president, to spearhead the CHANGE (well, Obama is bald and he’s starting lolz) in our political system.
Although he accepted the challenge, other presidential aspirants are still comfortable with his addition to the list adding that he needs to top the survey first before they will consider him a threat.
Meanwhile in his announcement, he further added that he will be choosing Senator Mar Roxas to be his running mate (as if he can afford not to pick him) but the senator has yet to confirm the offer and that according to him he won’t spoil Noynoy’s moment and so therefore we have to wait (again) for the even more anticipated announcement (Oh, please with the drama).
