It’s a go for Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
Early on Wednesday, he announced that he will run for president in 2010 as standard bearer of the Liberal Party (LP).
“Tatakbo ako sa pagkapangulo sa darating na halalan,” said Noynoy, who made the announcement on the 40th day after the death of his mother, former President Corazon C. Aquino.
He made the announcement at the historic Club Filipino in Greenhills, San Juan, where his famous mother took her oath as president on Feb. 25, 1986 during the final day of the EDSA People Power Revolution.
