MANILA, Philippines – Hindi inaprubahan ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino III ang panukalang batas na magbibigay ng benepisyo sa mga centenarian o mga Pilipinong may edad 100 pataas.

Sa ilalim ng naturang panukalang batas, makakakuha ng 75% discount sa mga bilihin at serbisyo ang nasa 8-libong mga Pilipino na may isandaan taong gulang na.

Bukod pa ito sa P100,000 cash gift na ipagkakaloob ng national government.

Ayon kay Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte, nalalakihan ang pangulo sa diskwento at mabigat ito para sa mga negosyante lalo’t hindi ito maaaring isama sa tax deduction.

“Ang mangyayari po kung naipasa ito, ang magbebear po ng burden ng 75% ay yung negosyo.”

Hinimok naman ng Malakanyang ang mga mambabatas na muling ihain ang panukala sa 16th Congress. (Nel Maribojoc & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

QUEZON CITY, Philippines — In commemoration of the 33rd anniversary of EDSA Revolution, former President Benigno Aquino III encouraged the public to use their right to vote so that the grim history of the country during martial law will never happen again.

He said that the public should remain vigilant because it seems like history is repeating itself.

“Tila nagbabalik iyong mga unang ugali at pamamaraan na ating nilabanan na noong panahon ng kadiliman ng batas military,” Aquino said.

(It seems like the previous actions and tactics we fought against during martial law are happening again),” Aquino said.

The former president even cited the proposal to change the country’s name to ‘Maharlika’ as reminiscent of the Marcos regime.

“Gagawin na naman tayong ‘Maharlika’. Parang last time kong narinig yan parang Apong Ferdie pa ata ang nakaupo eh. Hindi na left turn, U-turn na po ata ito,” he said.

(They want to name the country “Maharlika” again. The last time I
heard that proposal, Apong Ferdie [Ferdinand Marcos] was still in power. This is not a left turn anymore but a u-turn.)

Aquino called on the public to use their votes to prevent the country from falling into a worse situation.

“Kapag bumoto ka sa kaalyado ng administrasyon o ng mga inendorso nila, parang sinabi mo na rin na, ‘Tama po lahat ng ginawa ninyo. Ituloy po ninyo, lalo pa ninyong paigtingin’,”he said.

(If you voted or endorsed the allies of the administration, it is like you’re telling them that their actions are right and they should continue it.)

The former president also endorsed the eight opposition candidates. —Aileen Cerrudo with reports from Grace Casin
