Not interested in a second term

41

Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma issued a statement that President Aquino is not interested in a second term or an extension of his term. (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas has proposed the term extension of President Aquino in an ANC interview by Lynda Jumilla in her “Beyond Politics” program. Senators Koko Pimentel and Bam Aquino did not agree with Roxas’ idea. Senator Francis Escudero expressed his opinion that the President is not interested to stay longer in office. Philippine Star

LP Congressman Edgar Erice announced he is filing a resolution to change the Constitution. President Aquino has consistently opposed Charter change (Cha-cha), according to Senate President Franklin Drilon. Senators Grace Poe and Nancy Binay also expressed the view that President Aquino would step down in 2016 and give way to a newly elected successor. To settle the issue, President Aquino should personally issue a statement turning down Roxas’ proposal. Philippine Star
