Kris Aquino on Pres. Cory and PNoy
MANILA, Philippines - At the commemoration of the 3rd death anniversary of Former President Corazon Aquino in Manila Memorial Park Wednesday morning, August 1, all her children were present: Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, President Benigno Aquino III , Pinky Aquino-Abellada, Viel Aquino-Dee and Kris Aquino.
Times have changed, according to Kris Aquino, the youngest of the Aquino siblings. She quips, "If the media wants an opinion on something less controversial, they interview me."
She claims she is now the "good girl, the quiet Aquino" and PNoy is the "outspoken one."
The good sister
Asked about her own accomplishments as presidential sister, Kris answered that she used her personal finances to donate 10 HILL ROM hospital beds to the Philippine Children's Medical Center.
She did the same thing to fund the construction of 4 classrooms, part of the education and literacy project of her sister Pinky Aquino-Abellada’s Aklat Gabay Aruga Tungo sa Angat at Pag-asa foundation (AGAPP) in Muntinlupa.
On the RH Bill
Kris said that she received text messages from Archbishop Soc Villegas regarding the RH bill.
She knew the messages were meant to be forwarded to her brother, and so she did.
"My opinion really doesn't matter because I’m not married anyway; it doesn't involve me in a personal way," Kris said.
According to Kris, former President Corazon Aquino would have been very proud of her son's accomplishments in his term as President of the Philippines.
Mrs. Aquino died in 2009 after a battle with colon cancer. Because of this, the whole nation sympathized with the family, prompting then Senator Noynoy Aquino to run for president in the 2010 elections.
At this, Kris stated, "Many Filipinos benefit from the economic gains achieved by PNoy's administration. A lot of our kababayans have already improved their lives." - Rappler.com
