MANILA, May 15 (Mabuhay) — Despite an alleged rift between them, Senator Loren Legarda on Wednesday said she has no ill feelings against Senator Alan Peter Cayetano.
“Ako ay taong walang sama ng loob maski kaninuman. I think that’s the secret to contentment and serenity, and happiness,” Legarda said.
She issued the statement after President Benigno Aquino III himself admitted that some of the senatorial aspirants in his slate are not in good terms with each other.
Aquino specifically said the Liberal Party’s leadership talked with Legarda and Cayetano to try to patch up the alleged rift between them.
Earlier, Legarda said that “fellow candidates” were behind the reports that she failed to publicly declare a posh condominium unit in New York in her Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN).
On Wednesday, Legarda maintained that she never mentioned anyone at the time.
“Wala naman ako[ng] binabanggit na pangalan sa sinasabi kong presscon noon so Team Pnoy man, si Alan man o maski sinuman ay we will work well together magkikita kami sa aming proklamasyon kung kailanman man yun tonight or tomorrow at just to be accurate about it wala po ako pinangalanan,” she said.
She likewise said that the important thing is to learn “to be nice to everybody.” (MNS)
