SENATOR MIRIAM Defensor-Santiago and Atty. Narciso Santiago Jr. renewed their vows Saturday. Among the attendees were prominent and controversial politicians including Vice President Jejomar Binay, Ilocos Rep. Imelda Marcos, Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, former president Joseph Estrada, and Senators Jinggoy Estrada, Bong Revilla, Antonio Trillanes IV, Pia & Alan Peter Cayetano, Loren Legarda, Miguel Zubiri, and Manny Villar. Observers say there was ease in finding these VIPs inside the Cathedral. They were all seated in a row labeled: ‘This is where your taxes go.’
Aside from known political adversaries like President Aquino and Congresswoman Arroyo, and Executive Secretary Jojo Ochoa and Mr. & Mrs. Mar Roxas, the ruby anniversary of Sen. Miriam and husband Jun also brought together business rivals; executives from competing broadcast networks, and publishers/owners of leading broadsheets. The event thus made Senator Santiago the frontrunner for next year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago picked President Aquino as best man… fueling speculations it was a shotgun wedding.
