WHEREAS, Ferdinand Edralin Marcos was a well-decorated soldier, a veteran of World War II and a survivor of the Bataan Death March;

He was likewise formerly a member of the Philippine Congress and a Senator who became Senate President before he became president of the country;
WHEREAS, as the longest-serving president of the republic, Ferdinand Marcos built the modern foundations of the Philippines. He was responsible for the construction of vast infrastructure, the utilization of our energy sources, and the strengthening of local governments;
WHEREAS, at the height of the EDSA Revolution in 1986, former president Ferdinand Marcos left the country and died in exile in Hawaii in 1989. In 1993, in an act of reconciliation, then-President Fidel V. Ramos allowed the Marcos family to bring home President Marcos’s remains to Batac. Ilocos Norte where it has since been interred in the family mausoleum;
WHEREAS, without denigrating the achievements of the leaders and officials that emerged after EDSA, it can never be gainsaid that Ferdinand Marcos gave invaluable service to his country as soldier, writer, statesman, President and Commander-in-Chief;
WHEREAS, Ferdinand Edralin Marcos, who served his country in the best way he knew how, remained a Filipino patriot to the end of his life and in death deserves to be honored as such;
WHEREAS, the Libingan ng mga Bayani is the most fitting place of burial for former soldier, statesman and former President and Commander-in-Chief Ferdinand Edralin Marcos;
WHEREAS, it is a long-standing wish of former President Ferdinand Marcos’s family and friends, as well as of a large portion of the Philippine populace who acknowledge his contributions to the country’s development, that he be buried alongside fellow soldiers, statesmen and presidents at the Libingan ng mga Bayani;
WHEREAS, it has been a quarter of a century since the EDSA Revolution and allowing the burial of Ferdinand Edralin Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani will not only be an acknowledgement of the way he led a life as a Filipino patriot but will also be a magnanimous act of reconciliation which will strengthen the bonds of solidarity among the Filipino people;
NOW, THEREFORE, RESOLVED as it is hereby resolved by the House of Representatives, To urge the administration of President Benigno C. Aquino III to allow the burial of the remains of former president Ferdinand Edralin Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani;
