After Interior Secretary Ronaldo Puno announced on Friday he is no longer running for vice president in 2010, a Malacañang official said Saturday that the administration party is still looking for someone to fill the position.
Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said there are efforts by the administration Lakas-Kampi-CMD to look for a running mate for Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr.
“There is an effort to look for a vice presidential candidate for Sec. Teodoro. That’s as much I can tell you,” Ermita said on government-run dzRB radio, when asked if the administration is in talks with Senator Loren Legarda, who reportedly shut her doors to teaming up with Secretary Teodoro.
