Alvarez not invited to Marcos bash at Libingan: ‘I have better things to do’
House of Representatives Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez said he did not get an invitation to the 100th birthday anniversary celebration of former President Ferdinand E. Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani on Monday, September 11.
“I’m not invited in the first place and I have also better things to do,” he said in reply to a newspaper reporter’s question.
The Marcoses are holding a commemoration of the dictator’s 100th birth anniversary at the Libingan.
The invitation to guests said, “Honorable Imelda Romualdez-Marcos, her children, and grandchildren request the honor of your presence in the commemoration of the 100th birth anniversary of President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos on Monday, September 11, 2017.”
“A Mass will be held at 9:30 in the morning at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Bayani Road, Taguig City to be followed by a short program and lunch.”
