“From what I gathered, she has already fixed her mind on the presidency, and that won’t change. That is also true in the case of Sen. Chiz Escudero,” Aggabao said.

Aggabao also said that majority of the NPC's members are supportive of a possible tandem between Poe and Escudero.

However, both Poe and Escudero have not yet announced their plans for the 2016 elections.

On the other hand, Interior and Local Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas invited some of the members of the party in a meeting on Tuesday morning.

Roxas wanted to assure that the alliance between the LP and the NPC would remain intact for next year's national elections.
