“I don’t expect a third entrant. I think the two declared aspirants will end up being the ones to contest. I will not even publicly disclose who I am going to vote. I already know who I am going to vote and it is a matter which I have spoken to several of my colleagues. But I don’t think that it would be fair for me to publicly say I am supporting one or the other.”
