Statement of Senator Nancy Binay on the
passing of Senator Ernesto Maceda

Nakikiramay ako sa pamilya ng dating Senate President at Ambassador to the United States of America Ernesto Maceda sa kanyang pagpanaw.

Manong Ernie distinguished himself during his decades-long service to the country and to our kababayans as a legislator, statesman, Cabinet executive and a newspaper columnist.

His devotion in serving our countrymen was marked by the outstanding performance in the various capacities he had served as well as the numerous scams he exposed during his terms as a Senator. He was also recognized as an advocate of women's rights, and continued to give the poor and the marginalized a voice in his columns.

Maswerte ako at nakasama ko siya noong 2013 UNA senatorial campaign. I learned a lot from him, as he was generous in giving his advice and sharing his experiences. Nagpapasalamat ako sa kanyang mga payo, na tumulong sa aking paglago bilang isang mambabatas.

Manong Ernie, mamimiss ka namin.
