MANILA, Philippines - Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas insisted on Wednesday he has no plans yet for the 2016 elections.

Roxas said he would rather focus on his work at the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) than engage in politics.

His statement came a day after Vice-President Jejomar Binay said Roxas will be the Liberal Party's presidential bet in 2016.

Roxas lost to Binay in the 2010 vice-presidential race.

"Iniisip ko ngayon ang aking trabaho dito sa DOTC para makapagbigay tayo ng safe and convenient and affordable transportation sa ating mga kababayan. Hindi ko iniisip ang pulitika. Ang mga pulitiko inisip nila yung pamumulitika nila. Kaming mga nasa gobyerno, kaming mga kabahagi ng programa ni Pangulong PNoy nakatutok kami sa aming trabaho," he said.
