Statement of His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III
President of the Philippines
on the allegations against Sen. Loren Legarda

[May 6, 2013]

Throughout this campaign, Loren Legarda has enjoyed the overwhelming support of voters, which is in keeping with her longstanding status as a member of the Senate and a public official. She has a long and credible record of advocacies, which is the foundation for her public support.

I am confident that she is not only prepared, but will do her utmost best, to answer any and all allegations raised against her.

Team PNoy's composition is based on a shared commitment to honesty, transparency, and accountability in public service. Loren Legarda has never backed away from the duty of every person who works for the people, to live up to our common obligation to stand by these three basic principles of governance. I know that our fellow citizens will recognize this and that they can separate the facts from mere rumors or opinions.
