Geraldine Roman tells hurting Miro Quimbo: Goodbyes are always sad
Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman said that she too felt bad about leaving the Liberal Party to join the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) Wednesday.
“Of course, of course (nagpaalam ako ng maayos). Siyempre minahal ko rin sila at patuloy kong mamahalin bilang pagmamahal ko sa lahat ng aking mga colleague dito sa Lower House,” said Roman in an interview with reporters after being sworn in.
“Goodbyes are always sad. Hindi ko naman alam na masasaktan sila. Ako rin naman may konting…,” she added.
In a statement, Deputy Speaker Miro Quimbo talked about the LP’s disappointment and hurt feelings.
“It’s painful specially as we now consider each other as family. It’s like losing a brother or a sister. Its doubly more painful considering that those that have remained, including those that are leaving this afternoon, have been through a lot of trials already,” said Quimbo.
Roman explained that local politics was not the only factor that played into her decision to leave LP.
“I joined PDP-Laban because I wanted to show my support to the President. The success of the President and this administration is the success of our entire nation. Kawawa po ang ating mahihirap na kababayan. For me i did this as an opportunity. Gusto ko pong magka- isa ang mga lingkod bayan para sa ating bansa. I also share his (Duterte’s) vision and intentions,” said Roman.
