Rodolfo Fariñas: Prospero Pichay warned me about Alvarez ouster
Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative Rodolfo Fariñas said Surigao del Sur 1st District Representative Prospero Pichay Jr warned him about the impending ouster of former speaker Pantaleon Alvarez on July 23.
Pichay is a known ally of 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who replaced Alvarez as Speaker.
“And then in the morning of July 23, pumunta sa akin si Congressman Pichay. Sabi niya, ‘I promised to you before, ‘pag seryoso na, sasabihin ko sa’yo. Ito, seryoso na. Tanggapin mo na. Si Bebot lang naman ang papalitan,’” Fariñas said.
But the Ilocos Norte politiko said he told Pichay he could not abandon Alvarez.
“Sabi ko, ‘Pare, ‘di ako interested sa ganyan.’ Eh ako, syempre, ang Speaker, ang Majority Leader, dapat may trust and confidence ng Speaker ‘yan. So after that, they thought that I would cling to my position,” Fariñas explained.
