The lawmaker said that Aquino also invited her to “observe” his future meetings and asked her to be ready to pursue his reform program.

Poe revealed she and Aquino is set to meet again although there is no definite date yet for the next meeting.

The report said Aquino told Poe that his line was always open.

The lady senator has denied that there was an invitation from Pres. Aquino for her to be part of the ruling Liberal Party.

She said the President only discussed with her the LP’s process for selecting candidates. According to Poe, Aquino has informed her that the party followed a democratic process where all members have the privilege to be heard.

Poe added that Aquino also said that he would meet Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero and talk to him.

Poe has earlier said that a team-up with Escudero would be comfortable as she is close with the senator.
