SENATE Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano said that he would either run for president in 2016 or finish his term in 2019.
This was revealed by Cayetano, who was in Silay City Friday for the turnover of P150,000 capital for members of tricycle drivers and operators federation, as he said that the Senate Blue Ribbon sub-committee investigation on the corruption issues against Vice President Jejomar Binay will continue as two more issues will be tackled.
"We will continue with the investigation because the alleged corruption has been committed for 30 years. Why VP Binay? Because if you are in a position of strength, you have to be clean and free from charges of corruption. Like me, I have to be accountable in everything that I do. We have seen the evil of corruption in different branches of government," the senator said.
Cayetano added that witnesses in the corruption charges against Binay are now receiving threats and bribe attempts. Even the witnesses’ neighbors are bribed not to say anything to the media, he said.
Meanwhile, the senator said the amount he turned over to the tricycle drivers and operators in Silay is “part of his project to solve property and free people from the bondage of “5-6.”
Cayetano said he targets to raise P1 billion for small and micro entrepreneurs all over the country.
The funds come from businessmen who supported him the 2013 elections, he said.
