Villar ouster move is a 'bogus report' - Sen. Roxas

Senator Manuel Roxas II on Thursday denied being part of any move to oust Senate President Manuel Villar, even as he said Senate could have done better if it were more focused.

Although they have not categorically announced their intention to join the 2010 presidential race, Liberal Party president Roxas and Nacionalista Party president Villar appear to be gearing up for it.

The national daily Malaya reported that LP senators, led by former Senate president and immediate past president of LP Franklin Drilon, talked to Senator Juan Ponce-Enrile and asked him to replace Villar. Several meetings allegedly took place, one of them in Senator Gregorio Honasan’s house in Green Meadows.

Drilon and Enrile are fraternity brothers in Sigma Rho.
Asked if he was aware of any plans to unseat Villar, Roxas said: “Palagay ko kuryente iyon. Wala akong alam na pagpupulong at wala naman akong nasalihan na pagpupulong tungkol dyan (I think it’s a bogus report. I am not aware of any such meetings and I’ve not participated in a meeting about that).”

I am not aware of any such plot, of any such conversation. I certainly have not been in any meetings. It was reported to me that such meetings were held with me in attendance. I have not been to such meetings,” he said.
Villar’s camp refused to comment on the report.
