Nilinaw ni dating Tarlac Governor Margarita “Tingting” Cojuangco ang sinabi niyang “I'll just leave the country” nang tanungin tungkol sa balitang tatakbo sa eleksyon ang pamangkin na si Kris Aquino.
Sa ulat ng GMA News kagabi, February 27, sinabi ni Cojuangco, “It was a figure of expression.
"But I'm not going to deny what I'm saying. But what I'm trying to say is that each person belongs to a certain niche."
Kaugnay nito, inihayag din niya na may mga katangian na kinakailangan sa sinumang gustong pasukin ang pulitika.
Aniya, "I mean, I want somebody who's competent and knowledgeable about the complete issues of the country and may help the solutions and the good management skills.”
Si Cojuangco at asawa niyang si Peping ay kilalang kritiko ni Pangulong Noynoy Aquino, na kapatid ni Kris.
DEDMABELS. Samantala, nag-react ang TV host-actress tungkol dito sa kanyang blog na With Love Kris Aquino noong Miyerkules, February 25.
“Na-super LAUGH TRIP” daw si Kris tungkol sa balitang tatakbo siya sa Tarlac sa local election sa susunod na taon.
Ayon sa KrisTV host, malabo itong mangyari dahil sa kanyang mga endorsement.
Bukod dito, aniya, “I already said that my priority is to not only financially secure the future of my 2 sons, but to really be physically present in their lives, most especially Bimb’s, because Gerbel, his yaya since birth will get married this September.
“How can I be an effective public servant when my heart’s priority is my 2 sons?
“I sincerely believe to succeed in anything, I will need 100% FOCUS.”
Diin pa ni Kris, “PLUS, and most importantly you all know what you’re getting in me, I have no skeletons in any closet left, hanggang bulalo ko alam nyo na ang kwento.
“And sa KADALDALAN ko, may anomalya bang magaganap na makakalusot?”
NOT IN 2016, BUT..? Gayunman, hindi naman nagpahayag ng tapos si Kris tungkol sa pagpasok sa pulitika.
Ang sabi lamang niya sa kanyang blog, “Public service, whether elective or appointed office will come in due time, seriously I want to give back to the country that has blessed me so immensely, and not just via the taxes I’m religiously paying (2014 estimated income tax total payments to the BIR from me from my accountants Reyes Tacundong is in the 54 million peso range).”
Sa katunayan, may naisip na raw siyang paraan sa pangangampanya.
“Actually may naisip na nga akong campaign platform if and when the timing is right: I’ve religiously and honestly paid my taxes to the Philippine government since I was 15 years old.
“I have never cheated the government of money, and I know how hard it is to sign those BIR payment checks when you are fearful of where the money will go.
“I was 100% trustworthy in paying my taxes, you can be sure I will be 100% trustworthy in taking care of yours.”
Subalit nilinaw niya sa huling bahagi ng kanyang blog post, “But politics is not happening this 2016.
“For now, I am blessed to be an entertainer (host and occasional actress), an endorser, a producer, a website owner, a restaurant franchise owner, an investor, and a MOTHER.”
