ABS-CBNNews.com reports that in an ANC Headstart interview on Tuesday, June 19, Zambales Rep. Mitos Magsaysay said she is "surprised that she is being branded by some Cabinet officials as an ally of former president and current Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo."

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that in an ANC Headstart interview on Tuesday, June 19, Zambales Rep. Mitos Magsaysay said she is "surprised that she is being branded by some Cabinet officials as an ally of former president and current Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo." Magsaysay pointed out that Budget Secretary Butch Abad, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas, Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman and President Adviser on the Peace Process Ging Deles also served in the Arroyo Cabinet.

 

The report quoted Magsaysay, who said, "All those people who criticize me for being pro-Gloria are those even closer to the former president than me. They even served under her Cabinet. They benefited so much as far as pork barrel and projects are concerned." Magsaysay went on to point out: "In this administration, if you're a critic they already brand you as pro-Gloria. When you are part of the minority of the House that means it's your job to fiscalize the administration. You're supposed to provide the check and balance. I didn't imagine naman that this administration would be so onion-skinned."


The report also highlighted Magsaysay’s statement about the "pork barrel issue." She said, "It’s all hypocrisy. They bash the past administration for going against its political opponents by withholding the pork barrel but they are doing the same. They said they won’t do a Gloria, that they will release the pork barrel to majority and minority. I am living proof that they haven’t."
