Mar gives way to Noynoy

Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas announced Today that he is sacrificing his presidential ambition to give way to his Liberal Party colleague, Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, whom he endorsed to become the party’s standard bearer in the May 2010 elections.

Roxas, who has long been anointed by a faction of the divided party to become its presidential candidate next year, made a formal announcement at the historic Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan early Tuesday night with Noynoy in attendance.

Roxas said he made the decision in support of change, and called on Aquino to carry on the legacy left by his parents.
