MANILA - Presidential Assistant for Food Security and Agricultural Modernization Francis Pangilinan denied Friday there is a looming tandem between him and Senator Grace Poe for the 2016 presidential elections.

Pangilinan said it was just a joke that floated on social media.

The poster showed pictures of Poe and Pangilinan and labeled "Poe-Kiko", indicating they might be teaming up to run as president and vice president.

Pangilinan was asked about the rumors during the budget hearing of his agencies in Congress.
