Narvasa insists he’s ‘always ensured parity in all decisions’

They found my statement mentioning that it was uncalled for. I told them, when I said that, I was just telling the story. I did not mean to discredit you or disrespect them, but they found it very offensive,” he said.The league’s ninth commissioner said that if governors had an issue with his decision, they should have made an appeal in the weekly board meetings as predicated in the PBA by-laws, a move which is in contrast to the Board’s agreement days prior expressing their “all-out support” for his decision.“In any trade, there is a recourse. If the commissioner has made a grave mistake, anyone from the Board of Governors can appeal the decision of the commish as long as it wins by a vote of two-thirds. They can review, they can reverse, and/or modify the decision of the commissioner. It’s in the by-laws and constitution. It’s specifically written there,” he saidADVERTISEMENT Narvasa remains defiant: I’m fighting for principle QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding “Therefore, let’s say I made a grave mistake in this trade, they have the recourse among themselves in a special meeting to hold the trade. They have 10 days to make the complaint, so that means the trade is on hold and it’s not approved. Even if the commissioner approved it already, if there is an appeal to the chairman, they can review, they can modify, or reverse my decision, which they did not adopt.”Narvasa shared that he is saddened by the recent turn of events which cast the league in a bad light.“I feel bad more for the PBA. I was already involved in the private sector and I was happy there. But I was willing when they asked me to do the sacrifice in trying to balance their interests,” he said. “Now, they wanted to get me out of the way and I don’t know where that’s coming from, but that’s the situation.”The executive then stressed the necessity for the Board to convene and mend these issues quickly to maintain the credibility the Office of the Commissioner holds going forward.“I hope the Board of Directors talk among themselves already. I want it to be clarified for future commissioners. I know I’m here temporarily. There will be another commissioner here. Everybody wants to make sure that he has to remain independent. He cannot be influenced by any team. He cannot be frightened,” he said.
