Posted by akosistella on March 16, 2010
MANILA, Philippines—If elected president, Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III Monday said one of his first acts in office would be to set up a commission that would investigate the various scandals that had engulfed President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
“We want to set up an office or commission that will create a mechanism that would provide closure to all the issues surrounding this current administration,” Aquino said in an interview over GMA Channel 7’s Unang Hirit.
Pardon for Erap, Ninoy’s killers wrong – Noynoy
MANILA, Philippines – Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said yesterday it was wrong for President Arroyo to have pardoned former President Joseph Estrada and soldiers convicted of conspiracy in the killing of his father, Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr.
Aquino and his running mate Sen. Manuel Roxas II also denied trouble in their partnership, saying they were united and helping other candidates.
Some people in his camp were reportedly backing Estrada’s running mate, Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay, while others were pushing for a team-up between Roxas and Nacionalista Party presidential bet Sen. Manuel Villar Jr.
