MANILA, June 10 (PNA) – Senator Grace Poe on Wednesday confirmed that she met President Benigno Aquino III again more than a month after their first meeting where they discussed the 2016 elections.

”We discussed 2016,” Poe told the Senate media.

Poe said the President also discussed on who will continue his reforms in 2016.

She, however, clarified that no position yet has been offered to her with regards to the elections for president and vice president next year.

”In fairness to the President, there is none yet. He allowed me to speak and he told me the process which involved everybody in the selection. All of them have opinion and I told them, I respect it because I’m independent in 2013,” Poe said.

Poe said the President told her that he will decide about the LP’s political plans in 2016 in the coming weeks.

When asked if she is comfortable as tandem of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas in 2016, Poe she is in the process on what decision she will make.

Though she has yet to announce her political plans in 2016, Poe is already statistically tied with frontrunning Vice President Jejomar Binay in the previous presidential preference surveys.

Poe is the daughter of the late Fernando Poe Jr. who ran but lost in the 2004 presidential elections. (PNA)
