Arroyo Cabinet members told: Spill beans on ex-boss before joining Noynoy

Posted by akosistella on May 20, 2010


Arroyo Cabinet members planning to join the official family of President-apparent Sen. Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III should spill the beans on their former boss’ abuses, a militant group said Wednesday.

The Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) stressed the need to have Mrs. Arroyo investigated and charged for various misdeeds during her nine-year reign.

“It is not surprising that former Arroyo officials will be seeking new appointments under the Aquino administration, especially after their involvement in the Aquino campaign. Some of them appear to be determined to get back their previous posts. These former Arroyo officials however should first make a full accounting of their role in the previous regime. They should at least be willing to testify against the outgoing president,” said Bayan secretary general Renato Reyes Jr., in an article on the Bayan website (www.bayan.ph).

MANILA, Philippines—Don’t look at us.

An official of the Quezon City government yesterday pointed to the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) as the agency behind the posting of huge streamers bearing a message for the President on footbridges on Commonwealth Avenue.

“First of all, the pedestrian footbridge where the streamers are placed were constructed by the MMDA,” said Tadeo Palma, secretary to Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte Jr., and the one in charge of implementing a 20-year-old city ordinance which prohibits the posting of campaign materials in public places.

THE Nacionalista Party has tapped left-leaning groups to mount a “partisan” campaign against Liberal Party presidential candidate Senator Benigno Simeon Aquino III, saying he should be exposed as a member of a landed class that exploit the poor.

The leftist groups Anakpawis, Bayan Muna, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan, Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas, Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap, Makabayan and Gabriela, have been showing videos in squatter communities portraying Aquino and his landed kin—the Aquinos and Cojuangcos—as brutal and ruthless landlords running Hacienda Luisita in Tarlac.
