MANILA, Philippines — Even before her formal nomination before the Liberal Party convention on Wednesday, Senate President and Liberal Party stalwart Franklin Drilon said Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo will be the party's vice presidential candidate in the 2016 elections.

In an interview on the morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda," Drilon said it is most likely that Robredo, the widow of the late Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, will be Mar Roxas's runningmate.

"Malamang. Sabihin na lang natin na si Congresswoman Leni na ang kandidato natin sa pagkabise presidente," Drilon replied when asked if the congresswoman will be LP's vice presidential bet.

As of press time, Robredo has yet to confirm if she has formally accepted the offer of the administration party to partner with Roxas in the national elections next year.

In her earlier statements, Robredo has been reluctant of accepting the party's offer as her daughters have been apprehensive of the idea of their mother running for the land's second top post.
