MANILA — The Malacañang stood firm that President Rodrigo Duterte did not commit treason, betrayal of trust, bribery, graft and corruption, high crime and culpable violation of the Constitution for him to be ousted.
Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said the turn of events, including the impeachment complaint filed on Thursday against the President, seems to be coordinated and part of a larger scheme to topple the administration.
“Well, it just seems rather dramatic that everything seems to be so coordinated at this stage with acts of trying to discredit the administration and trying to throw doubt,” said he said.
The criticisms of Vice President Leni Robredo against the anti-drug war of the Duterte administration in the international engagement through the United Nations Commission on Narcotics Drugs, cannot be considered coincidental.
“It just seems too well-coordinated. Events like these seem too well-coordinated just to be coincidence,” Spokesperson Abella added.
For his part, Magdalo Party-list Representative Gary Alejano denies plotting a destabilization against the Duterte administration with his filing of an impeachment complaint.
“Dapat malinawag tayo dyan, kapag ba ikaw ay nagcritize sa polisiya at actuations ng gobyerno, yan ba ay destabilization?” said Representative Alejano.
Meanwhile, Malacañang remains unfazed of these events but appealed to the public to just focus on nation building and not be affected by the “noises” of the opposition.
“There’s so much noise coming from the circles, outside circles. It just shows a sign of lack of unity and stuff like that but it will all help us if we just bear the brunt together. I think we should just grow up,” Spokesperson Abella said.
Presidential Spokesperson Abella believes President Duterte will let his allies in Congress decide on their own and he will never manipulate them regarding the impeachment issue. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
