Aquino assures safety of democracy and sacredness of the individuality of the branches of government

PDFPrintE-mail

President Benigno S. Aquino III assured on Tuesday that the country’s democratic processes and the sacredness of the individuality of the branches of government is and will be preserved in light of his support for the Articles of Impeachment that seeks to remove Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona from his appointed position.

The President sought to downplay the concerns expressed by various legal experts and constitutionalists that a Constitutional crisis would prevail if the government would continue to pursue its case against Corona, saying these concerns and the accompanying “exchange of opinions” showed that democracy was truly alive and blossoming in the country.

“Ang pagsasalita pa lang nila ebidensya na siguro na hindi nadi-diskaril ang ating demokrasya at bagkus buhay na buhay ang ating demokrasya. ‘Yung pagpapalitan ng kanilang opinyon, ‘di ba, may nagmumungkahi, mayroong kontra doon; ‘pag nag-dayalogo, nagkausap, mapapaganda nila ‘yung mungkahi ng nauna,” the President said.
“So ‘yun lang po ang nangyayari sa ating proseso ngayon dito. At marami na rin namang mga abugado ang nagpasabi sa atin na sang-ayon sila sa ating mga pinaggagagawa. At ‘yung iba ho medyo kinakabahan na baka ma-sanction ng Korte Suprema kaya nananahimik. Hindi ibig sabihin na mas marami ho ang naniniwalang hindi tama ang ginagawa natin. Palagay ko po kung babasehan pa natin ‘yung mga survey na lumalabas eh karamihan ng mga Pilipino ay talagang sumang-ayon sa atin pong ginawa,” he added.

In his speech at the political caucus held at the Edsa Shangri-la Hotel, the President said his government was forging on with its quest to effect changes in the Philippine justice system, as his and the people’s responsibility to ensure that the next generation would be left with an honest and just judiciary.

“May responsibilidad tayo sa ating mga sarili, sa ating kapwa Pilipino, at lalo na sa salinlahing paparating pa lamang. Isa lang ang pinagpipilian natin: tanggapin ang kasalukuyang situwasyon na hindi tumutugon sa kagustuhan at pangangailangan ng nakararami o itulak ang pagbabago, at bumuo ng sistema kung saan mananagot ang may kasalanan, maski sino ka man,” the President said.

“Pagkatapos po ng mga prosesong ito, sinisiguro ko may naitindig na tayong mas matibay na mga institusyong kaytagal pinahina ng nakaraang administrasyon. Ito po ang ating ipamamana sa susunod na salinlahi. Nananalig akong tayo'y magtatagumay dahil tayo'y nasa tama, at hangad natin ang ikabubuti ng nakararami kung hindi ng lahat.

Sa lahat ng Pilipinong naghahangad ng malawakan at makabuluhang pagbabago, abot-kamay na po natin ito; nakikita ko na ang tagumpay kung bawat isa sa atin ay gagawin ang nararapat at makatuwiran. Hayaan po nating kunsensya ang magtimon sa atin” he added.
