MANILA, Philippines - Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Tuesday denied saying she is President Benigno Aquino III's exact opposite.

Her spokesperson, Maita Defensor, said the former President learned what Aquino said recently and "will not even dignify it with a comment."

The word ward between Arroyo and Aquino started after Mrs. Arroyo twitted her successor for lack of leadership and for not capitalizing on the economic gains made by her administration.

In response, Aquino sarcastically thanked his predecessor for pointing out their differences and said Arroyo gave him the biggest compliment by saying he is her complete opposite.
