ON THE WITHDRAWAL OF SEN. MAR ROXAS FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE
I have nothing but the highest respect for Sen. Mar Roxas. He has sacrificed his personal goals for a higher interest. I am sure this has been a difficult decision for him, but he has shown admirable humility.
I remain optimistic that the opposition will be able to rally behind a common presidential candidate for the 2010 election. With the withdrawal of Sen. Roxas, there is all the more reason for opposition parties and personalities to sit down and address the issue.
