It was in accordance with President Benigno Aquino III's statement that rival candidates should join forces to prevent the victory of survey front runner Rodrigo Duterte.
Poe quickly said, that she and Roxas "have nothing to discuss." She declined in 2015 the offer of Aquino and Roxas for her to be Roxas' running mate.
