MANILA, Philippines—Bayan Muna Representative Teddy Casiño explained in an interview on “Banner Story” why President Benigno Aquino changed his stance on the Freedom of Information bill starting from day one of his administration.


The FOI bill, he said, was one of the campaign promises of Aquino but he never mentioned it in his first  and second State of the Nation Addresses.
