Administration bet Mar Roxas reiterates he is not liable for the alleged anomalous contracts in the MRT-3, saying that former MRT-3 General Manager Al Vitangcol was removed from his post owing to his direct involvements to the contracts.

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Liberal Party standard bearer Manuel "Mar" Roxas denied allegations that he has a liability over the alleged anomalies connected to the maintenance contracts of the Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3).

During the second presidential debate at the University of the Philippines-Cebu, presidential bet and Vice President Jejomar Binay said Roxas must also answer for the corruption raps filed against him by former MRT-3 General Manager Al Vitangcol.

In response, Roxas said Vitangcol was kicked out of his position after it was found that his uncle was part of a company that bidded for the maintenance contract.

"Wala pong kinalaman si Mar Roxas sa kahit anong katiwaliang naganap sa MRT na 'yan," said Roxas, referring to himself in the third person.

Binay also quipped that Roxas was "guilty of analysis by paralysis," that the former Interior secretary has been slow in making decisions.

Roxas admitted that he really takes time in taking actions, but assured that he is capable of fulfilling his promises if he is elected president.

Firing, back at Binay he said: "Ako po ay talagang mabagal kumilos. Hindi ako gumagalaw 'pag pagnanakaw ang pinag-uusapan," said Roxas.

[Translation: "I act really slow. I do not act if stealing is being tackled."]

The second #PiliPinas debate was organized by the Commission on Elections (Comelec), KBP, TV-5, and Philippine Star.
