Transcript of Interview of Senate President Franklin M. Drilon

SPFMD: The President did not say that he is for a second term. I was reading the transcript of the TV5 interview, there was nothing there that said that the President is interested in a second term. Malakanyang has already said the President will not push for Charter amendments during his term. I think the issue is over. We keep on beating a dead horse.

Q: Kasi raw Sir, mixed signals yung binibigay ng Palace.

SPFMD: I don't know. For me the signals are clear. Ask those who think there's a mixed signal. To me, Malakanyang has said the President will not push for a Charter amendment.

SPFMD: There is no official stand of LP.

Q: Nagmeeting raw ang LP?

SPFMD: There is no meeting called for Cha-Cha.

Q: On the issue of Judicial overreach?
