CCP said that it would pause its Pride Lightning event to honor Aquino, as the yellow lights would be seen until Friday night.

 Aquino died on Thursday morning due to renal disease secondary to diabetes. 

Aquino’s term was remembered by his followers and allies for instituting anti-corruption policies, supporting reproductive health, and standing up against China’s intrusion in the West Philippine Sea.

 Allies within LP and even former political opponents and current government officials also extended their sympathies to the bereaved family.
