BY CARLA GOMEZ

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that he would support a re-election bid by President Benigno Aquino III, but Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) said he does not believe the President will go for it.

“I will support him. I believe he is one of the best presidents we have ever had, he is an honest man,” the governor said in reaction to talk of extending the President’s term through Charter Change.

Benitez, on the other hand, said he was confident that the President will not seek reelection. There definitely will be an election in 2016 of other contenders for the presidency, he said.moremoremore

Then, it can be used as legislation that is an example for others to follow, said Benitez, who authored the House of Representatives approved version of the bill.moremoremore
