If elected, Noynoy’s wishes will be followed, says Luisita spokesman

If Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III becomes president, Hacienda Luisita management will comply with whatever decision he makes regarding the Cojuangcos’ controversial sugar estate, a spokesman of Hacienda Luisita, Inc (HLI) told GMA News in an interview.
And that includes Aquino’s cousin, Central Azucarera de Tarlac chief operations officer Fernando Cojuangco, who was recently quoted in the New York Times as opposing the distribution of Luisita’s land to farmers.
“Magagarantiyahan natin kung palarin si Senator Noynoy, irerespeto at susundin hindi lang ng pamilya kundi dapat ng buong bayan,” Atty. Antonio Ligon said when asked about the Cojuangco quote. “[Kahit] sinuman ang nahalal na pangulo, siya yung chief executive, tagapag-patupad ng batas.”
