Sen. Grace Poe warns of Arroyo's return to 'presidency' if...




Senator Grace Poe has called the nation to be wary of Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s return to head the executive branch.

In a very unexpected move, the House of Representatives changed leadership, members of the House elected Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo elected as its new speaker, replacing Davao Del Norte Representative Pantaleon Alvarez.

The talk that has been brewing that Alvarez will be replaced, more so when he had the public disagreement with Presidential daughter and incumbent Davao Mayor Sara  Duterte-Carpio, who has recently formed Hugpong sa Tawong Lungsod a regional COMELEC recognized political party in Mindanao.

Multiple media reports, the plan to oust Alvarez was finalized during the weekend, with people close to the Davao Mayor.

Asked by ABS-CBN regarding Arroyo’s possible election as the next Speaker, Poe said: “I don’t think I have to repeat myself and remind people about the corruption and all of the other anomalies that happened during her term in office.”

“This is something that the people should be able to imagine: If we turn parliamentary and I believe they will really push for that especially with her leadership, she would be either next in line to be the president of the country or at par with the president,” Poe added

The senator was asked again “Is this the change that we wanted? Somebody led by the former president, her style of governance during her time?” 

“I’d rather have somebody totally different— not from the choices that they are presenting right now,” she explained.

The former President became chief executive in 2001 after a popular military-backed revolt ousted former president Joseph Ejercito Estrada.

In 2004, she won the presidential election allegedly with nationwide cheating, in 2005 the “hello Garci” scandal was exposed.

Now as Speaker of the House of Representatives, she is now the third highest official of the land, she holds a considerable amount of power and is given the task to steer the legislative agenda of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in Congress.
