By: Elena Grace Flores The blame game is on the Liberal Party faction now that it has become very obvious that their Otso Diretso slate is getting absolutely unpopular. Mar Roxas has to change strategy. Kris Aquino hit out at the camp of Roxas over comments supposedly blaming her brother, former President Benigno Aquino III, for the Liberal Party standard-bearer’s loss in the 2016 presidential race. Bongbong Marcos was the focus of ex-Pnoy’s blocking promise from the VP post. Thus neglecting now President Rodrigo Du30’s victory over Roxas during the 2016 elections.

Aquino Cold War
Actress, Kris Aquino and her brother ex-President Noy are not on speaking terms currently. The rift was only about a social media post of the youngest sibling of the Aquino family saying that she knows why Du30 won in the 2016 elections over Roxas.
Roxas is in denial over the LP feud. He said that maybe their political enemies are only looking for a big scoop to destroy them. He clarifies that there’s no misunderstanding at all between Noy and him despite Kris’ rants.
Yellow to Blue StrategyEdgar Erice, Roxas’ campaign manager, said they decided on the color blue for his 2019 senatorial bid.”It was a conscious decision to change colors because one mistake that Roxas made in 2016 was acting like Robin to Aquino or the Batman. Robin will never be Batman,” Erice said, referring to the superhero duo of DC Comics.
Kris Aquino’s Rants on the Strategy
Kris, who is on social media, said that she has to speak up about the issue. “Really – to blame his loss on my brother? So, was it Noy’s fault that he lost in 2010 as well?” Kris said, referring to Roxas’ defeat in the 2010 vice presidential race.
Who is Silent or Decent?
Kris added that though we have a rift, when people disrespect my brother because he is decent and will just stay silent – they will read our truth. Does Kris really know what her brother did to Bongbong Marcos or to the Marcoses at that? She better know by now who keeps quiet because of his decency. Then, the truth will set her free.
