Allan Peter Cayetano seems to just laughed at the unexpected seating arrangement when he was in between Senator Nancy Binay and Trillanes during the resent senate session. He was even laughing with the lady senator. Can this be the start of a reconciliation now that the election is already over? President Rodrigo Duterte would have liked that if that is the case as he himself is a good friend of former Vice President Jejomar Binay. Indeed, this could be a way towards healing the country. Read this:
GMA reported: Am I being punished by the Senate? Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano jokingly raised this question Tuesday as he found himself seated in the middle of Senators Antonio Trillanes IV and Nancy Binay. He asked if he is not punished then it should be his seat mates were being punished.
Binay is the daughter of former Vice President Jejomar Binay whom Cayetano criticized for alleged corruption during his stint as Makati mayor. Cayetano, together with Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III and Trillanes, pushed for the Senate probe on the matter. Trillanes, on the other hand, had a rift with Cayetano when they both sought the vice presidency. Trillanes also scored Cayetano for defending his then runningmate, now President Rodrigo Duterte.
It added: Cayetano said he and Binay laughed over their situation. Asked if he would asked to be transferred to another seat, Cayetano said: No need as they have transferred already. Binay, meanwhile, told reporters that she was surprised with the seating arrangement.
Hilarious…Binay said. Do you know who my seat mates were? I’m ready but it seems that the two have not moved on yet; Binay joked. The seating arrangement will still be changed as Trillanes will be transferred to another seat being a member of the minority bloc.
