Transport Secretary Mar Roxas must be in quandary on whether to run for Congress and become the next Speaker, or stay on as Noynoy’s aide, both in Transportation and as his “troubleshooter.”
The reason for the quandary could be linked to his political career that he hopes would bring him the presidency in 2016.
If Mar runs in his Capiz district for a seat in the House of Representatives, he is definitely assured of the speakership, as Noynoy will just as definitely have his lapdogs in Congress elect him. Incumbent Speaker Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte will be downgraded to deputy speaker, without any power, or big budget that the House chief gets.
If Mar, however, chooses to stay on as Noynoy’s transport aide, it is almost certain that he can kiss his dream of becoming the president after Noynoy, or even vice president in 2016..... MORE
