Binay: Hindi ako bumoto sa ‘Marcos Day’ bill

Pinabulaanan ni Senador Nancy Binay na isa siya sa walong senador na bumoto pabor sa pag-apruba ng House Bill No. 7137 na nagdedeklara sa Setyembre 11 bilang special non-working holiday bilang paggunita sa “President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos Day” sa Ilocos Norte.

Paliwanag ni Binay, wala noong oras na inaprubahan ng Senate committee on local government ang nasabing panukala.

Pitong senador ang bumoto pabor sa nasabing panukala. Sila ay sina Sens. Francis Tolentino, Sherwin Gatchalian, Cynthia Villar, Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa at Joel Villanueva.

“I had to leave the hybrid hearing of the Senate committee on local government after the discussion on the re-districting of the province of Bulacan due to a prior commitment,” sabi ni Binay.

“Thus, I was no longer a part of the hearing when House Bill No. 7137 was tackled and discussed,” dagdag pa nito.

Binigyang-diin ni Binay na hindi siya boboto sa anumang panukala na magiging dahilan ng ‘historical revisionism’.

“I wish to reiterate that I did not vote for the approval of the bill and will not support any bill that would cause historical revisionism,” ayon pa kay Binay.
