MANILA - Former First Lady, Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos on Monday discussed democracy and hit President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III for not being kind enough.

Marcos's late husband, President Ferdinand Marcos, and Aquino's late parents, Senator Ninoy and President Cory Aquino were long time political rivals. Senator Ninoy Aquino was incarcerated during the martial law.

"We talk about politics, it's justice. Hindi pwede pagka presidente 'yung [during] election [campaign], you can tell your program but when you're president...[you should] be generous and kind even to those who don't like you," Marcos said before Aquino delivered his last State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday.

Marcos added, "All I can say is something personal: they have not been nice to the Marcoses."

"When we talk about the nation, you talk about democracy; you talk about justice for all, not for one," Marcos added.

Marcos also refused to evaluate Aquino's years in office.

"I don't want to go fight. I've been into so many controversies," she said.

Marcos also didn't want to talk about the plans of her son, Senator Bongbong Marcos, in the 2016 Presidential elections.

Marcos was among the early birds in the morning session of the House of Representatives, hours before the SONA.
