PIMENTEL to be a Marcos critic if Bongbong wins presidency  


If former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. wins the presidency in the May polls, Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III may join the minority in the Senate as a critic of the new President.

Since I have three years left in the Senate, if he wins I might join the minority so that there will be some checks,”said Pimentel on ABS-CBN News Channel’s Headstart Tuesday.

Pimentel heads a faction of the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) that is supporting the presidential candidacy of Senator Manny Pacquiao.

“There should always be checks on a Marcos presidency or if I should join the majority, then I will have to categorically state to my colleagues in the majority that I will be a critical majority. They should allow me to speak my mind also as a mechanism to check the person or persons in power,” Pimentel said.
