Palace dismisses rumors of plans to impeach P-Noy
Nope, he’s not leaving anytime soon.
Aurea Calica of The Philippine Star (via ABS-CBNNews.com) reports that on Thursday, September 12, "Malacanang dismissed the rumors of alleged plans to impeach President Aquino as a mere attempt to divert attention from the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) scam."
The report quoted Secretary Ricky Carandang of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office, who said, "I think it is an attempt at misdirection. The public has been given revelations about alleged corruption in the spending of PDAF. And, I think, there are certain parties who are trying to misdirect it, for one reason or another, towards the President. Let me just say that the President has never been accused of misusing any funds from the public. The President does not have a PDAF per se, the way that Congress has a PDAF, and so that's not an issue. It's an attempt to misdirect the attention."
