MANILA, Philippines - Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said there is "nothing firm" yet on the plans to buy a new vehicle and plane for the President.
She said there is a need to buy a new vehicle and plane for the President.
"I don't think it's quite the President's preference but meron po talagang pangangailangan sa ganyan. Like in the case for the presidential car, there are security requirements that are there. Alam naman po natin ang high level of security that we afford to the President," Valte said.
On the current F-28 presidential plane, Valte said:
"We haven't been using now as well because of certain repairs that constantly need to be done. It is as old as I am. I am 31 years old. So that plane needs some work."
