Senator JV Ejercito doubts that the impeachment complaint against President Rodrigo Duterte will go forward. According to Sen. Ejercito, there is no compelling reason for the impeachment against Duterte to push through.
The Senator said that when Magdalo pushed to ouster Former President Gloria Arroyo, the public are questioning the presidency of Arroyo due to allegations of cheating during the elections.
But in President Duterte’s case, he has enough number of votes, and the public trusts his leadership. Ejercito insists that it is not the right time for an impeachment complaint to be filed against Duterte.
Sen. Ejercito, further added that the programs of the Administration will not push through if the President will be removed from his position now.
The Magdalo Partylist Representative Gary Alejano filed an impeachment case against President Rodrigo Duterte earlier today, at the House of Representatives.
Malacanang reacted to the complaint and believes that it is part of a larger plan to destabilize the government.
