Noynoy Aquino on the cover of Time Magazine

Liberal party presidential candidate Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino has been consistently topping presidential preference surveys but the campaign period is far from over but the Philippine senator has something to smile about as he was just featured on the cover of the highly respected Time magazine, the same publication that hailed his mother, former president and democracy icon Corazon Aquino, as 1986 Woman of the Year.

At its April 26 - May 3, 2010 issue, TIME Magazine talked about the prospect of Aquino winning the 2010 elections of which he, according to opinion polls, is the frontrunner for the Philippine Presidency.

The article entitled 'The New Aquino: Can Noynoy save the Philippines?' chronicled the candidate’s whirlwind journey to the highest post in the land, just months after the outpouring of support on the death of her mother.

The Time article said: “He talks with ease and intelligence about his plans to expand the country's middle class with microcredit programs, to boost industry, universalize health care, fix education and shake up the judiciary. But there are doubts about how savvy an operator he will be when thrown deep into the murky world of Philippine politics.”
