Erin Tañada vows to push for FOI bill’s passage if elected senator in 2019
Senator candidate Erin Tañada vowed to continue pushing for the passage of the Freedom of Information (FOI) bill if he gets elected in 2019.
The FOI bill was not passed during the Aquino administration despite Tañada being a staunch Liberal Party member.
The Quezon politiko said he felt he was left hanging by his party mates at that time.
“Nakakalungkot. Akala mo ito na ‘yung pagkakataon na maging matagumpay na ang adbokasiyang ito, pero pagtingin mo sa likod, nag-iisa lang ako,” Tañada said.
“Para sa akin, kung ito ‘yung adbokasiya na talagang pinaniniwalaan ng isang tao, dapat hindi nagbibitiw, hindi katulad ng mga kaibigan sa Senado, minsan sasabihin FOI talaga sila pero after ng isang fail, wala na,” he added.
