The political party has not revealed Aquino’s cause of death.

Aquino was the uncle of the late Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., and granduncle of the late President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III.

He served as vice governor of Tarlac and also represented Tarlac’s third District at the House of Representatives.

Aquino ran for Vice President during the 2004 national elections and was the running mate of Aksyon Demokratiko founder, the late Sen. Raul Roco.

The pair, however, lost to former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and former vice president Noli De Castro.

Sunday, August 1, also marks the 12th death anniversary of President Cory Aquino.
