Outcome of US presidential election won't affect US-RP relations - Dureza

Manila (3 November) -- Malacanang said that regardless of who wins the United States presidential election next week, US-Philippine relations will remain as strong as ever.

In an interview with the Radyo ng Bayan program, "Pilipinas, Pilipinas!", Press Secretary Jesus Dureza said that the goodwill between the US and the Philippines is strong and profound to be affected by the outcome of the presidential contest between Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate, and his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain.

He pointed out that as in past US presidential elections, the outcome of next week's political exercise will have no effect on the historic ties between the two countries.

The friendship between the US and the Philippines transcends politics, and it will remain strong whoever is elected to succeed President George W. Bush - Obama or McCain, Dureza said.

McCain and Obama are battling for the US presidency in a hotly contested election that is expected to draw a record number of American voters to the polling places.

The two candidates have been crisscrossing the US in a last dash for votes barely 48 hours before the election. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
