The results of the US presidential elections will not have an effect on the bilateral relations of Manila and Washington, the head of an international development foundation says.

Asia Foundation's Steven Rood said Philippine-US ties will remain the same whoever wins in the US elections being contested by incumbent President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Rood adds that the Filipino-American community should not be ignored by Democrats and Republicans. - ANC, Prime Time, November 5, 2012
