MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III should speed up and finish the distribution of the Hacienda Luisita lands in one year, and not until his term ends, said Farm Workers Agrarian Reform Movement (Farm)-Luisita president Renato Lalic said Tuesday.

 Aquino made this pledge in his third State of the Nation Address Monday.

In an interview with anchors Susan K, Den Macaranas and Captain Dylan Halili of “Good Morning Inquirer” on Radio Inquirer 990AM, Lalic said considering the Supreme Court has already ruled on the distribution of the sugar estate owned by the family of Aquino, the President should be able to implement the order in one year, and not until 2016—before his term ends.

“Yan ang nakakatawang ipinangako niya . . . dapat sa isang taon lang . . . hindi na namin kayang maghintay. Dapat itong taon na ito ipamahagi na (That’s a ridiculous promise. It should be finished in one year. We can’t wait. This year, the lands should have been distributed),” Lalic said, adding that Luisita farmers has not received anything from the promised “support services” from the government.

For the full interview, listen to the audio clip from Radyo Inquirer 990 AM.

    Masyado kayong apurado eh siyempre iproseso pa yan at hindi lang naman isa katao ang bibigyan. Libong ka tao ang bibigyan. O baka naman kaya kayo nagmamadali para ma-ibenta o ma-isanla niyo na agad at hahanap na naman kayo ng ibang lupa para doon namang manggulo at manghingi ng lupa na ibebenta at isasanla ulit. Sindikato!

      oo nga naman, hindi pa nakakapili ng bagong CJ na “aayusin “yang hacienda luisita…

    I your dreams Mr. Lalic.
    Best to hope and pray that the next CJ won’t be and underling of this administration.
    Because a kowtowing CJ would fight tooth and nail to protect this administration’s vested and personal interests.
