STATEMENT OF VICE-MAYOR KARISSA FAYE TOLENTINO-MAXINO:
“Just to set the record straight, I never demanded ‘personal’ respect as I do recognize the fact that it should be earned.
What I said was, the Sangguniang Panlungsod, as a legislative body, should be respected ‘while in session’ pursuant to the rules and parliamentary procedure.
I hope this clarifies the matter.”
