Gonzalez: 'I think Arroyo will run again'
MANILA - President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will run again in May 2010 if efforts to change the form of government from presidential to parliamentary through a constituent assembly succeed, according to newly appointed Presidential Legal Counsel Raul Gonzalez.
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News, the former justice secretary said he believes that Arroyo will run for a parliamentary seat in Pampanga so she could be elected as Prime Minister in 2010 in case the current efforts to change the charter through a Senate-less constituent assembly materialize.
"I will not be surprised if the President will run as Member of Parliament," Gonzalez said. (Click ABS-CBN News.)
IF this isn't the clearest statement yet about the Presidentita's intentions, I don't know what else there is to say. To those who still doubt the congressmen's motives about HR 1109/Con-Ass, that's your proof right there.
