Alejano’s impeachment complaint still without OK from fellow opposition solons
Don’t look now, but Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano’s own fellow members of the House opposition bloc haven’t endorsed his impeachment complaint against President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Not yet. Mag-uusap pa kami,” said Rep. Teddy Baguilat Jr. of Ifugao Wednesday (March 22) when asked if he had already given the impeachment complaint his personal stamp of approval.
Baguilat is the default leader of the “Magnificent 7,” the opposition bloc in the House of Representatives (HOR).
“We are still doing our consultations,” said another opposition member in Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin when posed the same question.
Alejano filed a 16-page impeachment complaint against Duterte before the HOR’s Office of the Secretary General last Thursday (March 16). He later admitted that he didn’t inform his Magnificent 7 mates about his move.
Alejano has already apologized to them and said that he would respect their decision about his complaint.
