PIA Press Release

Nothing new in moral revolution battle cry of opposition - Palace

Manila (13 February) -- Malacaņang said today the call for a moral revolution is quite a worn out cliche that has to be retired as President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has instituted morally upright reforms since the start of her administration.

In his weekly media briefing in Malacaņang this afternoon, Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said that the President, since the start of her administration, has directed the implementation of reforms that revolutionized and strengthened transparency and accountability in governance.

"This moral revolution is nothing new," Ermita said. "Ginagawa lang battle cry nang iba as though the President is not doing about it when all along since Day One of her administration she has been doing this."

Ermita said the President has pushed for the creation of the transparency group that monitors public biddings; the conduct of automated counting and anti-dynasty bill as part of several political reforms, and the Executive branch has been strongly supporting the independent function of the Office of the Ombudsman and the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).

Ermita said it has been the duty of every leader to pursue a program on moral revolution to provide a better future for the people.

"It can come out in any other term, any other form, but definitely the stability of our country, the welfare of our people, and the moral stability of our country is paramount in the mind of every leader, every President, and that includes definitely President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo," Ermita said.
