Judy Roxas pulls all stops for Mar's Palace bid
Tuesday, June 09 2015

BACOLOD CITY – Interior Secretary Mar Roxas is apparently letting his mother do the talking for him. While Roxas remains coy about his plans for the presidency in 2016, his mother, Judy Araneta-Roxas, went all out to start campaigning for him.

And Araneta-Roxas left everyone in no doubt that her son is definitely running for President in 2016. The widow of the late Sen. Gerardo Roxas is known to be pivotal player in all of her son's previous political campaign but she stayed behind the scene. Not this time.

"Please do not forget my son, Mar Roxas," Araneta-Roxas appealed to sugar leaders at dinner her on Friday.

"Can you imagine if a Negrense in Malacañang, what can come to us in Negros?" she added. Asked if Roxas would run for President in 2016, Araneta-Roxas replied: "I believe so, I know."

But she said Roxas has yet to choose a running mate. The matter is still under study. Roxas had met with Sen. Grace Poe but nothing was definite yet, she said.

"There are people he is considering," she said. Araneta-Roxas, a tireless campaigner for her son during his previous runs for senator and Vice President, vouched for Roxas' integrity in all the years that he has been in government.
