Yung totoo lang: PNoy hopes solons heed people’s will in deciding on impeach raps vs. Robredo


Former President Benigno Aquino III remains hopeful that lawmakers will decide on the impeachment complaint against Vice President Leni Robredo with their constituents’ sentiments in mind.

Sana idaan natin sa mga kinatawan… Tandaan natin ang titulo nga ay kinatawan, kumakatawan ka sa mga mamamayan. Sana ‘yung posisyon na magiging panukala mo ay kumakatawan sa sinasakupan mo,” Aquino was quoted as saying in an article posted on GMA News Online Wednesday (March 22).

Aquino and Robredo are both from the Liberal Party.

A six-member group composed of lawyers, a professor and a governrment official is set to file an impeachment complaint against Robredo when Congress goes back on session on May 2.

The so-called “Impeach Leni” team said they are building an impeachment case against Robredo over her controversial recorded speech at an event of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs where she criticized the administration’s war on drugs.

The group is composed of of the following: Department of Interior and Local Government Assistant Secretary Epimaco Densing III, lawyers Tom Berenguer, Bruce Rivera, Ahmed Paglinawan and Trixie Cruz Angeles (Politiko’s former publisher), and professor Antonio Contreras.
