Alonte-Naguiat stresses party loyalty amid P100-M bribery scandal
Biñan, Laguna Lone district Rep. Marlyn Alonte-Naguiat, a PDP-Laban noob, underscored her loyalty to her new party despite being tagged in an alleged P100-million bribery try that was designed to save Senator Leila de Lima’s hide.
“Ako po ay under sa leadership ni President [Rodrigo] Dutete. Ako po ay tumatayo bilang isang PDP-Laban member. Di ko po sisirain ang pangalan ng partido,” she said in a DZMM interview Friday, February 24.
Alonte-Naguiat was originally a Liberal Party (LP) member but jumped ship to PDP-Laban–Duterte’s party–following her victory in the May 2016 polls.
De Lima is a stalwart of the LP, which was the erstwhile ruling political party.
“Nasisira po ang aking pangalan at nasisira ang panglaan ng aking bayan na aking nirerepresenta,” rued the Laguna solon.
In order to clear her name, Alonte-Naguiat said she would get in touch with PDP-Laban officials, especially House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.
“I will have to talk to the leadership po. Ang aming hong Speaker si Speaker Alvarez po at itatry ko pong kontakin sila. Wala pa pong akong kinontact na officials sa PDP and the Speaker haven’t spoken to me po.”
