Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., made this remark when asked about the possibility of forging a “tandem” with Sen.Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in the 2016 presidential elections.

The supporters of Revilla and Marcos were rooting for a “Bongbong-Bong” presidential and vice presidential team-up, respectively, for the national elections three years from now.

“Sabi ko nga anything is possible. Pero, wala pa kaming napapag-usapan ni Senator Bongbong. Malay natin baka Bongbong-Bong or iba pa, ‘di ba? Maraming p’wedeng mangyari. It’s too early pa naman. Ang importante, trabaho muna tayo,” Revilla said in a phone patch interview.

“Actually wala pa naman ‘yan eh. Natanong sa akin ‘yan nang nagpunta ako sa Ilocos Norte. Tinanong ako kung totoo ba ito na may Bongbong-Bong? Sabi ko maaga pa naman. Magaling naman si Senator Bongbong, di ba? Ako’y naniniwala din sa kanyang kakayahan. Pero (it’s) too early. Ang importante ngayon ay magtrabaho muna tayo para sa bayan,” he said.

Asked whether he is entertaining thoughts of running for higher office in 2016, Revilla said:”That’s true. Sabi ko nga ‘di ba kailangang paghandaan at sabihin natin naghahanda ako. Pero ‘yung pagdeklara hindi pa natin masabi kung kailan.”

“Basta’t tayo’y naghahanda para kung ano talaga ang darating sa buhay natin. Destiny ‘yan eh. Kung talagang doon tayo itutulak ng tadhana, at least handa tayo. Kung hindi man, at least nakapaghanda tayo,” he said.

“Mayroon naman tayong experience maski sa local government (dahil) dati rin tayong (Cavite) governor at naging chairman din tayo ng Videogram Regulatory Board. Kung experience ang pag-uusapan, malawak na rin (ang aking experience). Ganunpaman, ayaw ko munang magsalita ng tapos ngayon,” he added.
