PIA Press Release

New impeach complaint "double dead meat" - Palace

by RG Alama

Davao City (30 June) -- The new impeachment complaint filed last Tuesday, June 27 is a double dead meat as it will not stop the momentum of President Arroyo in her mandate to serve the interests of the people, according to Press Sec. Ignacio Bunye, in a statement released last June 28.

"President Arroyo is half way around the world drumming up investments, jobs for Filipinos and tourism for the Philippines. She is focused like a laser beam on her public duty and no amount of political gimmickry will take her eyes of her goal. " said the Press Secretary.

Sec. Bunye said that the impeachment complaint reeks of seeking to distract the President from her duties, but said it would be a futile exercise, as he said that President Arroyo is committed in her job of running the country and serving the people.

"The futility and irrationality of the moves of the opposition will not dent a bit the momentum of the President's economic policy, the gains the Filipino people have chalked up in the economy and our aggressive campaign against terrorism in accord with our global alliance." Said Sec. Bunye.

Last June 27, about 200 complainants composed of private individuals and members of people's organizations trooped to the House of Representatives to file a new 25-page impeachment complaint against the President.

But according to Davao City First district Representative and current House Majority Floor Leader Prospero Nograles, the complaint will not hold as the one year prohibition has not yet expired. The Constitution prohibits the filing of a new impeachment complaint within one year from the filing of the first complaint.

The President is currently on a three-nation trip to Europe, officially visiting Italy, Vatican City and Spain in an effort to promote economic and tourism investments and also foster closer ties and cooperation with these countries. (PIA) [top]
