Impeachment complaint vs. P-Noy filed
Naturally, it’s over DAP.
Inquirer.net reported that a total of 28 petitioners have filed an impeachment complaint against President Aquino over the controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).
According to Bayan Muna Party-list Representatives Neri Colmenares and Carlos Zarate, the groups want Aquino impeached for "violating the Constitution by usurping Congress' power of the purse."
The complaint also said that the President should be impeached for "betraying the public trust by exacerbating the corrupt pork barrel system, committing tyrannical abuse of his powers, violating his oath of office and perpetrating multiple counts of technical malversation and corruption of public officials."
The impeachment complaint was endorsed by three members of Congress, including Colmenares, Zarate, and Anakpawis Representative Fernando Hicap.
