The 67-year-old Gringo Honasan who played a major role during the world-renowned EDSA Revolution during the year 1986, clarified that he is not interested to run with Vice President Binay in the upcoming 2016 national elections.
In an interview with the press, Sen. Gringo Honasan was quoted as saying “I have not considered it,” Honasan told members of the press in a televised ambush interview.
According to Senator Honaan, he prefers to work behind the scenes and said that it will help the main opposition party, the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) in the 2016 presidential elections.
Sen. Honasan also noted that a tandem of VP Binay and Sen. Bongbong Marcos is “formidable.” In an earlier interview with VP Binay, he revealed that Sen. Marcos and Sen. Honasan are among his top choices as his Vice President in the hotly contested 2016 elections.
The opposition party lead by Vice President Binay is set to announce his running mate and complete senatorial slate by the last week of September.
