(SPOT.ph) Citing allegations made against the Arroyo kin, former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has expressed doubt that the Aquino administration would be fair to her and her family, reports ABS-CBN News. The Pampanga representative said, "Base sa mga nangyayari, hindi. Ngunit mayro’n tayong konstitusyon. Mayro’n tayong mga batas na dapat sundan at mayro’n tayong mga korte na sila ang magtutupad sa mga ito. (But we have a constitution and courts that implement our laws.)"
According to ABS-CBN News, President Noynoy Aquino’s first executive order was the Truth Commission that was tasked to investigate allegations against Arroyo’s administration. The Supreme Court later declared the Truth Commission unconstitutional. Yesterday, the Bureau of Internal Revenue filed tax evasion charges against Arroyo’s son Mikey, representative of Ang Galing Pinoy partylist, and his wife.
Meanwhile, the former President told ABS-CBN News that she is content with her new life as a House representative. "Alam ko naman na hindi naman permanente ang pagka-presidente (I know that being a President is not permanent)."
ABS-CBN News reports that many have noticed that Arroyo now looks younger and more relaxed despite the accusations against her. She said, "Hindi ako nag-facelift. Masasabi mong siyensiya siguro iyong hot pack o ’yong mga nira-rub sa mukha mo. Wala iyong mga invasive... I avoid visible fat... pero I really only (eat) one full meal a day."
("I did not get a facelift. No invasive surgeries; I just use hot packs and facial creams... I avoid visible fat... I only eat one full meal a day.")
