Vice President Jejomar Binay said that former Tarlac Rep. Jose “Peping” Cojuangco and the National Transformation Council (NTC) have the right to demand the resignation of President Benigno Aquino III.
Binay was defending Cojuangco and the NTC from the threat of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima who noted that these groups were bordering on “criminal acts” for their repeated public demand for the President to step down.
“Ito naman ay sa tunay na diwa ng demokrasiya, kahit anong organisasyon ay kinikilala naman ng ating batas iyan,” said Binay in an interview with reporters during his visit to Victoria, Tarlac Feb. 28.
“Iyong Council na iyon, they can say what they want to say, kasi democratic naman po tayo. Kahit anong organized group, okay okay lang,” added Binay.
Cojuangco’s wife, former Tarlac Gov. Margarita “Tingting” Cojuangco, claimed to have obtained Binay’s agreement that the latter owould take over an advisory council which would would take over after Aquino was forced to resign. Binay confirmed meeting with the Cojuangcos in early February but has denied making any commitment to support Aquino’s resignation
Aquino has ignored calls for his resignation as these were merely coming from disgruntled bishops and former government officials who were linked to the Arroyo administration..
Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles, one of the leaders of the NTC, said that his group were composed of “patriots defending the country and Constitution.”
 “If they are truly following the law, then apply the law… We, in the NTC, are not doing anything illegal,” said Arguelles.
