Noynoy doesn’t buy transition promise
Posted by akosistella on March 12, 2010
SURIGAO DEL NORTE , Philippines – Liberal Party (LP) presidential bet Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III yesterday warned that President Arroyo’s assurance of a smooth turnover to the next president may be a hollow one.
Aquino said there are indications that Mrs. Arroyo could have been making decisions to ensure her stay in power beyond her term of office on June 30, citing the appointment of Maj. Gen. Delfin Bangit as the new chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
Another instance, Aquino added, is the impending appointment of the next chief justice despite the constitutional prohibition against the President making any appointment during the last few months of her term.
