Commentary: Malacaņang on nursing exam retake

Bacolod City (6 October) -- The decision of Malacaņang to withhold its earlier statement ordering a re-take on the controversial nursing test appears to be a good sign that everyone's voice will be given the chance to be heard before it finally gives a verdict.

It was learned that the leakage case being taken by the National Bureau of Investigation will be given a crucial bearing in the next decision the palace will make.

"The policy of a retake of the nursing exam remains, but the administration is studying the case meticulously as it awaits the second phase of the NBI investigation which is zeroing in on the participation of the review centers on the exam leakage," a statement from the palace said.

Officials also said a thorough appreciation of all circumstances surrounding the leakage scam will be considered to give due punishment to those who are guilty while those who are innocent would be fairly treated.

In Bacolod City, Mayor Evelio Leonardia has openly expressed his opposition to a retake for those who had no participation in the mess and even offered to give legal assistance to nurses who wished to push their cause in the courts.

Bacolod Lone District Representative aired similar sentiments favoring a retake only to those are found guilty as Presidential Assistant for Western Visayas Rafael Coscolluela has readied papers for President Gloria M. Arroyo expressing disapproval of nurses and their parents of another examination. (PIA-LOL) [top]
