Inquirer.net reports that in the wake of Chief Justice Renato Corona impeachment, Senator Joker Arroyo called an impromptu press conference on Wednesday, December 14.

 

For starters, the senator  said Aquino was on his way "to becoming an autocrat like [the late Ferdinand] Marcos." He pointed out: "The way I look at it, Noynoy is smarter than Marcos because Marcos had to issue Proclamation No. 1081 to usher in martial law. Noynoy doesn’t have to do anything except to muscle in on everyone. Marcos used [the eradication of] poverty and communism as his excuse to commit abuses. We have a one-man government now since Noy has subjugated the House and is on his way to doing so to the judiciary. By focusing on the alleged crimes of [former President and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo] and Corona, people are being entertained by the President's bid for power disguised as transparency."

 

According to the report, the senator also believes it would only be "a matter of time before he set his eyes on the Senate as well" since he is now "targeting the Supreme Court."
