Two senators who were former allies are now “enemies” from different sides. In his privilege speech yesterday, Sen. Antronio Trillanes IV, bolted out from Senate majority to say his distrust and lost of confidence in the leadership of Senate President Juan Ponce-Enrile.
Trillanes accused Enrile of being an Arroyo ally for allegedly railroading the bill that will divide Camarines Sur into 2 provinces, to which the Senate President denied. Enrile on his part accused Trillanes of lobbying for the interest of China over the dispute in Panatag Shoal.
“Inuulit ko: posible na ang dating imposible. Humaharap po ako sa inyo ngayon, at sinasabing: hindi ko SONA ito. Kayo ang gumawa nito. SONA ito ng sambayanang Pilipino”
For 1 and a half hours, President Benigno S. Aquino III delivered his 3rd State of the Nation Address. Speaking in front of the joint congress, Pres. Noynoy once again enumerated the gains of his administration and his future plans for the country.
Although I was a bit disappointed again with the inclusion of some blame game portion, this year’s SONA was really fruitful and inspiring. It’s delightful to know that the road to “daang matuwid” is now cemented and will now paved the way for the smooth travel to our country’s progress and development.
