Palace defends backtracking on nursing board issue

Manila (5 October) -- MALACAÑANG on Thursday defended deferring its decision on whether to order a retake of the leak-tainted June 2006 nursing licensure examinations, saying it needed time to thoroughly review the issue.

At the same time it assured that any decision it reached would be fair to all, punish the guilty and spare the innocent.

Several quarters have been quick to slam the Palace for it shifting position on the test retake issue, with opposition solons saying the “flip-flopping” was indicative of the administration’s decision-making process.

But Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye said: "The complexity of the case compels us to subject it to a more thorough review and to take into consideration the prevailing circumstances to ensure that those who are guilty will bear the brunt of retribution while those who are innocent will be treated fairly."

Bunye said Arroyo "will not falter on her resolve to settle this issue once and for all and redeem the integrity and good reputation of the nursing licensure system."

He also said concerned government agencies are firming up their recommendations on the matter

"We assure all stakeholders that justice will be served and the honor of the nursing profession upheld," he said. (OPS/PIA) [top]
