President Rodrigo Duterte faced an impeachment complaint on grounds of betrayal of public trust and alleged hidden wealth, but even the opposing party, Liberal Party (LP), decided to reject the impeachment case.

“It will only serve to distract us from the many important matters that Congress should be giving priority to. For these very imperative reasons, the LP House majority caucus members present categorically took a position that we will not support any of the impeachment complaints filed against the leaders of the land,” said Deputy Speaker Miro Quimbo said last April 21, 2017 (Friday).

Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella highly approves of the LP’s stance saying that, “any impeachment process would be counterproductive for the Philippines, which has been described to be the fastest growing in Southeast Asia.  We therefore have to seize our economic momentum and not be derailed by destructive politics.”

The majority bloc of LP had 15 of its lawmaker-members vowing not to support any impeachment bid against Duterte.

“We welcome the Liberal Party’s position not to support any impeachment move against President Rodrigo Duterte, being the duly elected leader of our country with no less than 16 million Filipinos who voted for him. Any act to remove him from office is an attempt to subvert the people’s will,” Abella said.
