Group says PNoy can regain public trust if he resigns

Apr. 06, 2015

An urban poor alliance said President Benigno Aquino III can regain pubic trust “only if he renders a resignation from his office”.

“The Filipino’s are forgiving but they are not forgetful,” said Gloria Arellano, national chairperson of Kalipunan ng Damayang Mahihirap (Kadamay) saying that Aquino’s resignation “is a necessary step that Malacanang has to take for the sake of delicadeza and accountability for his mistakes”.

She also claimed that without the public trust, “Aquino could not lead the country morally as his administration is battling against the most turbulent political crisis during his term”.

Recently, Aquino’s public trust plunged in the aftermath of Mamasapano fiasco and his inconsistent remarks about the incident. The plunge is stiffer than what his predecessor, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, suffered during her term as president.

“Nothing can salvage Aquino’s popularity as long his programs at the grassroots level remain unpopular. The Filipino urban poor cannot bear another year of an impoverished condition and violent cases of eviction under the US-Aquino regime,” said Arellano.
