The President, Vice President and other constitutional officers could be removed from office other than impeachment and quo warranto, according to a former lawmaker.

Teddy Locsin Jr., the country’s permanent representative to the United Nations, said assassination was another way to remove a constitutional official from office.

“Constitution says “may be removed” by impeachment because constitutional officers “may be impeached” if they deserve it & if the numbers are there which is always iffy. NOT BECAUSE IT OPENS THE DOOR TO ANOTHER WAY TO REMOVE THEM THAN IMPEACHMENT. THOUGH THERE IS ASSASSINATION,” Locsin said.
