Manila Bulletin Online reports that Manila auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo-chairman of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) National Secretariat for Social Action (NASSA)-said that President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III "appears inaccessible to the poor."

 

Pabillo even compared P-Noy to former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. "Before we were also critical of her but when we need to talk to her, we were able to do so. We have access to her. With P-Noy, we have none," he said.

 

Pabillo went on to point out that in last year’s poverty summit, Aquino allegedly "failed to attend or send a representative." Manila Bulletin Online noted that "the CBCP-NASSA earlier disclosed that it had sent letters to the administration regarding the Hacienda Luisita case but received no reply."
