Robredo Delays Electoral Protest because Fairness of the House is an Issue


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Leni Robredo knows that she cannot survive the impeachment due to the super majority in both the lower and upper House of Representatives. The ultimate goal of the Liberal Party as disclosed by former President Noynoy Aquino is to prevent Bongbong Marcos from winning the VP post. The only way to do this despite the administration’s foreseen success in such impeachment complaints against her is to delay the electoral protest – because Marcos can only assume the Vice Presidency if he is proclaimed victorious by the SC, whether the post is vacated or not.

Majority versus Liberal Party

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez himself pushes for her impeachment. This is why Leni Robredo is worried about the fairness of the impeachment process in the House of Representatives. They are dominated by the President’s allies. But the Liberal Party or LP in the House vows to fight the impeachment of Robredo, according to the LP members.

Pre-judgment in the House against Robredo

Under the Constitution, the House, which hears the impeachment complaint, is the one to assess and determine if the complaint filed against a public official is sufficient in form and substance. Even before the impeachment proceeding, the leader of the House already made a pre-judgment. “This is really worrisome. In all past impeachments, this is the first time we see the Speaker leading it,” said LP Representative Gutierrez.

Behind the President’s Impeachment Complaint?

Alvarez perceives betrayal of public trust as the VP’s ground for impeachment. This is for her criticism of the administration’s bloody war on drugs in a videotaped message sent to an event in a United Nations conference. Alvarez also accused Robredo of being behind the impeachment complaint filed against the president that she vehemently denied and acknowledged by the president.


Marcos Loyalists Filed the Impeachment Complaint against Robredo

Lawyers Oliver Lozano and Melchor Chavez, who are Marcos loyalists filed an impeachment complaint against Robredo. This is irrelevant to Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest because even if she is impeached, he can’t take over the post yet. They claimed that shames the nation with her damaging message to the United Nations which are based on hearsays. This made her guilty of betrayal of public trust.

Immediate Successor is the 3rd Highest Official of the Land

Under the law in the Philippine constitution, it is the third highest official that shall immediately succeed when the vice presidency is left vacant.  In this case, it is the Senate President Koko Pimentel who directly benefit once Robredo is impeached and not Bongbong Marcos. Next in line to Pimentel is House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest Win is Crucial

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II clarified that Bongbong Marcos can take the VP post once Robredo is removed from her post. But he has to win the electoral protest first. It is noted that the said process takes years to facilitate but since many cannot stand Robredo anymore, it is not so important who would replace her in the VP post for as long as they can get rid of her.

VP Successor can also be Appointed

The president can appoint a VP replacement from members of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The appointee assumes office once the majority vote from both Houses of the Congress approves the appointment. The Commission on Appointments then scrutinizes the VP candidate for confirmation. This is based on Article VII Section 9 of the 1987 Constitution.


Ground for Impeachment

Robredo allegedly betrayed the people by shaming the nation with her dishonest message to the side event in the United Nations forum. “The respondent is duty bound to act within the framework of the Constitution but her acts of dishonesty and moral bankruptcy breached the bounds of the Fundamental Law,” Lozano said. In the video, Robredo exaggerated the killings linked to the drug war and also revealed a so-called “palit-ulo” scheme with the wrong description.

Marcos Lawyer Lozano Sues Du30’s Impeachment Filer, Warns of a Bloody Revolution


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Tthe former lawyer of the late strongman President Ferdinand Marcos, Oliver Lozano questions the motives of the Magdalo lawmaker, Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano who tries to impeach PDu30 over his alleged role in the extrajudicial killings of 8,000 drug suspects and allegedly amassing P2.2 billion in unexplained wealth, among other crimes. On top of that, they also added the unconfirmed Benham Rise agreement of the President with China.

Conspiracy Claim

Alejano has no personal knowledge of the allegations laid out in his impeachment complaint. So, the grounds are actually based on hearsays. The former Marcos lawyer claimed that the move to impeach the President is part of a conspiracy backed by the US Central Intelligence Agency and the European Union, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, two international human rights organizations that criticize extrajudicial killings linked to the president’s bloody war against illegal drugs.

Yellow Gang Strategy

Lozano accuses the “Yellow Gang” of masterminding the plot in hopes of installing Vice President Leni Robredo to the presidency.

“Therefore, I believe that the impeachment complaint against the president is part of sustained propaganda to eliminate DU30 and elevate Robredo in order to usher the return of the yellow gang composed of: plunderers, drug lords, gambling lords, smugglers, oligarchs, landgrabbers, the vindictive, corrupt and incompetent,” the complaint said.

Bloody Revolution

In his complaint, Lozano warns of a “violent confrontation and bloody revolutionary situation” that could arise as a result of the political crisis. “I believe that the enlightened Anti-Yellow Gang will rise in defense of the President in great spirit that the recent Yellow People Power to oust the President is aborted by Counter People Power,” he elaborated in the said complaint.


The President’s Impeachment is Bound to Fail

House Deputy Minority Leader Harry Roque also agrees with pro-administration legislators that the impeachment case against the President will simply go down the drain. Roque, himself and international and constitutional law expert, explains that Du30 could not be held liable, or impeached, for acts which had happened before he became president. Let alone the unfounded allegations over Benham Rise.
