Meet Mar Roxas and his ‘children’

Aug 17, 2015 @ 8:14

Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas is pushing forward his presidential candidacy in 2016 with the help of his “children” from the House of Representatives.

Several politikos have formed a group called “Anak ni Mar” to rally support for the administration standard bearer. Among the Luzon-based lawmakers are Yacap party list Carol Jayne Lopez, Quezon City Reps. Jorge Banal and Kit Belmonte, Cavite Rep. Gerald “Blu” Abaya, Palawan Rep. Franz Alvarez, Laguna Rep. Dan Fernandez, and Akbayan Rep. Ibara Gutierrez.

Roxas recently met with his team a few days after President Aquino endorsed his candidacy for the 2016 polls. Also present in the meeting were Cebu Rep. Samsam Gullas and ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman.

Time will tell if Roxas will pick some of his “children” to join his official family should he win the presidency next year.
