LOOK! De Lima To Her Detractors: “May Araw Din Po Kayo!”
In Senator Leila De Lima’s privilege speech today at the Senate hearing, it seems that she could not hold her anger anymore to those senators who voted yesterday to elect new Senate Committee on Justice Chairman, she said:
May araw din po kayo!-Sen. Leila De Lima
De Lima also responds to Sen. Cayetano’s privilege speech yesterday where she walked out of the Senate hall.
Congratulations to Senator Alan Peter Cayetano for his triumphant victory yesterday, and for making me realize that a committee chairmanship is not the end of everything for me as a senator.
According to De Lima, if being the Justice Chairman will lead her to lose the principles she used to live by and sacrificing everything, it is definitely not worth it.
No committee chairmanship is worth it if it means sacrificing my principles and surrendering the causes that I pledge my life to fight for.
Based on the Inquirer report, there are friends of De Lima that suggested her to keep mum on the issue. In that way, she could have been the chairman until now.
Part of De Lima’s privilege speech, she used a verse from the Bible wherein she chose to keep her soul.
As the Bible says, what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and yet to lose his soul? I choose to keep my soul.
