Representative Magsaysay hits LP for challenging Binay loyalty

MANILA, Philippines—Zambales Rep. Milagros Magsaysay on Wednesday scored the Liberal Party for vilifying Vice President Jejomar Binay and making him choose between President Aquino and former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo after Binay’s coalition for the 2013 midterm elections, the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), invited allies of Arroyo and critics of the administration to join its initial senatorial lineup.

UNA is a coalition between Binay’s Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and deposed President Joseph Estrada’s Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP).

“Why must the loyalty of Vice President Binay to the administration be questioned because he has invited critics of the administration to his coalition?” Magsaysay said. “They should look into the merits of the credentials rather than persecute the Vice President and paint him in a bad light. It is not wrong to form a strong lineup based on performance.”

She said that the LP should respect Binay’s decision-making, specifically so because he belongs to another party and has never interfered in party matters and party decisions of the LP.

Magsaysay also said Binay had never criticized LP’s active recruitment of the former administration’s allies from the Lakas-Kampi-CMD.

“Why must he be held accountable for his choices now when they have been recruiting from Lakas since they assumed office in 2010?” she asked.

Magsaysay, deputy minority leader in the House of Representatives, was among those earlier invited to join the UNA senatorial slate.

Known as a staunch critic of the Aquino administration, Magsaysay said her pork barrel has been withheld because of her decision for not toeing the line with regards administration policies, which she believed were abusive.

Saying she does not criticize for the sake of criticism, Magsaysay said she commented on important issues affecting the people like taxes, corruption, and their human rights and offered suggestions to find solutions.

“It is not my problem that the administration is onion skinned and refuses to address the plight of the people,” she said. “In terms of anti-corruption initiatives, I have been fully supportive of the efforts of this administration. My stand has always been go after those who have wronged the country but don’t be selective. Justice must be served to all.”

Magsaysay, likewise, said the Vice President had performed his duties based on the President’s orders.

“Because of speculation about the alliance he is forming, he is being vilified? That is not fair,” she said.

  • EdgarEdgar

    Just telling it like it is. This is what I love about Mitos, everytime she opens her mouth, the administration begins to tremble and shake in the knees. Mitos always gets it right and fires away straight to the point. Mitos, you have my vote and many others inside and outside this forum. The country needs someone like you who has the courage to stand up to this absurd yellow dictatorship.

    • hatecorrupt

      I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR MITOS….

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4UUKT3KMR3HZPFPTGCWK5XQ2WY Mark

    Kung si ABnoy ang mag recruit sa mga taga-Lakas, okay lang.

    Kung si Binay, mali.

    Tingnan niyo naman ang pag-iisip nitong sira-ulong anak ni Cory!

    • rocky92

      Parang ikaw yata may sira.

    Eh papaano nangangatog na ang tuhod na matandang PNOY kasi wala ng matitirang Senators line up para kanyang LP dahil sa bulok niyang pamamalakad –  look at the criminals now & everywhere kaliwat kanan hold up sa mga banks-malls-exclusive subdivisions- hindi niya mapigilan ang mga krimen at ma solve ang daming problema pagbulusok ng price papaano kasi lahat ng nag mamay ari mamayaman tumulong sa kanya during his campaign 2010.

    Magsaysay also said Binay had never criticized LP’s active recruitment of the former administration’s allies from the Lakas-Kampi-CMD.

    Magkamag-anak ba si Brenda at si Mitos?  Parang may kulang sa kanillang dalawa.

    • EdgarEdgar

      freemystic, you have such a naughty mind. Miriam is well loved by her husband, clearly evident last Valentine’s. Mitos is well-fantasized by those who saw her legs in a GMA TV clip, if the comments are anything to go by.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4UUKT3KMR3HZPFPTGCWK5XQ2WY Mark

        Pati ang baklang si NoyNoy Aquino, naduduling sa legs ni Mitos!

    and what performance is this lady talking about? endless talk about nothing and non-sense is not performing… to be a critic to the administration is not good performance… as a die-hard gma lapdog, why now side with UNA if there are indeed performance actions from her… balimbingan na — mag-isip at maging wais sa pagpili ng kandidato…

    Why do you merit Magsaysay with space in your newspaper? No one will vote for her – well, she can attempt bribery, that might help.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FVBPRR4NKZ2DFURBCD5I4Q5GN4 Leg

      ..oo nga, bribery works in the yellowtards..

    Galit kasi si Abad dahil makukuha ni Binay yung mga kandidatong may panalo.
    Ang matitra na lang sa LP ay ang mga latak tulad nila Danny Lim, Delima, at Hontiveros.
    Ayan, huli nanaman sa pansitan ang LP.
    Para makabuo ng line-up, mapipilitan silang kuning kandidato sina Kris Aquino, Boy Abunda, Ogie Alcasid, Vice Ganda, Cesar Montano, Elly Pamatong, at kung buahy pa, si Father Tropa.
    Star-studded cast di ba?

        But that’s the same as censorship and curtailment of freedom of expression. I don’t remember you saying the same thing to those who assail GMA and Corona with the same vituperative language.

    here we go again. kakatapos lang magmumog ng holy water nitong mga pnoy prostitutes, heto balik na naman sa paglalaway.

    If you want to get rid of corruption, you have to start somewhere.  GMA stands out.  That is not selective, that is due proces….

    I read in one article that the former senator Jun Magsaysay is not supportive of this ksp, because she is die-hard Gloria d i r t y a s s licker.
