[VIDEO]: After over 50 days in detention, the six Ilocos Norte provincial government officials on Tuesday were ordered released by the House of Representatives.
Aftermath: 2019 Plans
Ilocos Norte Gov. Marcos admits that the House of Representatives inquiry into her alleged misuse of P66.5 million in tobacco funds is all about politics. She surprisingly showed up at the House Committee’s hearing in honor of the subpoena issued against her. “I think it’s all about the 2019 plans,” Marcos said. This leads her to think that she can help in creating and reviewing laws.
Unity among Ilocanos
Senator Enrile intends to unite the Ilocanos. The governor also hopes to be in good terms again with Rep. Rudy Farinas. “I’m always hopeful that a peaceful negotiation can be made. The election is still far away if this is ‘Game of Thrones, the north remembers.’ ‘I hope that it’s not ‘Winter is coming,’ or else it would be scary,” Marcos said.
Will Help to Create Laws
Despite her strong feeling that the conflict arises due to political reasons, she still wishes that things can be resolved without making other people suffer. She is confident that she can help in making vital laws for the good of the country. Can this be an indicator that she will run for senator in 2019?
Not Using Presidential Connection
Marcos does not want to bother the President on the matter. “The president is aware of the issue. Obviously, he reads the newspapers. He is busy with the courts. I do not want to bother him anymore,” Marcos said.
