Kris Aquino, Running for President in 2016?

Will it be another Aquino in the Malacanang Palace by 2016? Or is Kris Aquino running for a national post but not really as President? Or will she be Tarlac's next lady Governor after Margarita "Tingting" Cojuangco?

So many assumptions for the late NoyNoy Aquino’s youngest daughter and her assumption to public office. But Kris Aquino, born Kristina Bernadette Cojuangco Aquino, 42 years old, who is known for her honesty and outspokenness via several awkward and uncomfortable public announcements in the past has never confirmed any of her political plans just yet. If there’s any.

But yesterday at an event in Hotel Sofitel, Kris’s brother, President Noynoy Aquino Jr. told the members of the press that there is possibility for Kris to run for Presidency two years from now. “If she feels driven” where the exact words of the President. “The latest pronouncement I heard from her was, she’s aiming to be the perfect stage mother,” the President added.

The media asked the President if he will encourage her sister to run, PNoy qouted “If you want to get even with somebody, get them into politics.” But he quickly added, “And I love my sister.”

In a political rally in Davao City on May 2 for the 2013 Senatorial elections, Kris was qouted in saying “Sa 2016, dapat manalo ako.” As reported by local news portal, the Queen of All Media was teasing the newly re-elected Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte for not supporting her brother in 2010. Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada won the Presidential election in Davao City with 253,623 votes compared to Aquino’s 204,713 votes. After the teasing, Kris told Duterte to make sure that he will carry her in 2016. “Mayor Duterte, hello, friends na tayo. Dahil hindi mo pinanalo si Noy nung 2010, sa 2016 dapat manalo ako,” she remarked.
