[VIDEO]: Malacañang on Tuesday said the “simple and quiet” commemoration of the 31st anniversary of the Edsa People Power Revolution on Feb. 24 does not mean that the administration is giving less significance to the historic peaceful uprising that toppled the Marcos dictatorship.
The President’s Choice
The president did not attend the 31st celebration of the EDSA revolution recently – but senior deputy executive secretary Menardo Guevarra speaks on his behalf. He is also not in the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos’ burial at the Heroes cemetery, although he allows it.
Presence of Key Personalities
Former president Fidel V. Ramos attends the EDSA revolution celebration. Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, Senator Gringo Honasan, and former Vice President Jejomar Binay are all there. It’s only Ramos among these four EDSA players who is still criticizing the President’s policies despite his claim that he is pro-administration like the rest of them.

The president must promise to build an EDSA learning center by next year. Malacañang already marks the 31st anniversary of the EDSA uprising ‘with dignity,’ and it went well. But Ramos insists that the public must have sufficient information regarding the event or else the recollection of other players won’t match his biography?
