MANILA (Mabuhay) — President Benigno Aquino III will likely follow a family tradition and spend the New Year with his relatives, Malacañang said Saturday.
But deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said they have not received any word on where Aquino will be when 2015 comes in.
“Traditionally kasama niya ang pamilya, ang kapatid at pamangkin,” she said on government-run dzRB radio.
When asked if Aquino will spend the New Year in Baguio City, she said her office has not received any advice yet.
She said Aquino and his relatives usually take turns in hosting the New Year gathering. (MNS)
