Barangay captains in Tarlac to swear in Noynoy Aquino

With the tensions going on in the Supreme Court in connection with the “midnight appointment “ of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo of the incoming Chief Justice Renato Corona who will be replacing Reynato Puno who will be retiring on May 17. President elect Benigno “Noynoy” S. Aquino III who will be assuming office on June 30 releases a statement that he rather takes his oath as the 15th President of the Philippines before the Barangay Captains in Tarlac rather than Corona.

Aquino strongly opposes the appointment of Corona by PGMA and he finds it inappropriate and he will never recognize him as chief justice. Corona was PGMA’s former presidential legal counsel, chief of staff, spokesman and acting executive secretary. Despite of the election-appointment ban that holds the outgoing president to appoint anyone in the office, PGMA ignored it and appointed Corona. The Supreme Justice ruled this issue by informing the critics that the judiciary department is exempted from the ban.

Aquino, who has no plan to swear in before the incoming chief justice will be following his mother, the late former President Corazon “Cory” Aquino who didn’t took her oath before the chief justice (Ramon Aquino) that time but to the Associate Justice Claudio Teehankee.


To swear in or not, it will be a big challenge to Aquino to face one of the biggest challenges in his administration, if he takes oath before Corona it means he accepts and recognizes the appointment done by PGMA. If not, according to the Presidential Spokesman Ricardo Saludo last May 13, he says that the incoming president could face impeachment if he fails to recognize Corona as the new Chief Justice of the Supreme Court where SC releases a statement that the appointment done by PGMA to Corona is legal. In this case the two scenarios doesn’t favor to Aquino, is this the first strategy of PGMA as part of her “plans” now she will be assuming as congresswoman in Pampanga along with her alliance who will be assuming to power by June 30. The next question will she be the next House Speaker of the House of the Representative and what will be Aquino’s plan to fight it? Aside from Arroyo, Marcosses will be in power too, Imelda in congress, Imee as governor in Ilocos Norte, and Bongbong Marcos in Senate. Believe me 2010-2016 will be fun in terms of Philippine politics.
