‘Your legacy will live on’: Along Malapitan remembers ‘idol’ Ed Angara


Caloocan Rep. Along Malapitan paid tribute to the late former senator Edgardo Angara to mark the latter’s third death anniversary.

In a May 13 Facebook post, Malapitan said Angara was instrumental to the passage of legislation involving Philhealth, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and Commission on Higher Education.

Angara, the lawmaker added, also pushed for the passage of the Senior Citizens Act that provided for additional benefits for the elderly.

“Tinitingala ko po ang mga katangian ni Senator Ed na pagiging mapagmalasakit, makatao, tapat, at magaling na lingkod bayan,” Malapitan said.

“Your legacy will live on, Sen. Ed!” he added.
