Group will not call for PNoy’s ouster, but

Feb. 25, 2015

Labor group Trade Union Congress of the Philippines-Nagkaisa (TUCP-Nagkaisa) will not join or support any move to oust President Benigno Aquino, III from office but wants him to accept command responsibility over the Mamasapano incident.

“We urge Mr. Aquino to take responsibility because in a constitutional democracy, the buck stops with the President. The people want him to lead from the front and he must take the lead in providing justice to our fallen 44,” said TUCP-Nagkaisa spokesperson Alan Tanjusay.

Tanjusay said the president should also “exact accountability from the MILF”.

“We need the President to publicly require and demand the MILF leadership to surrender the MILF fighters who participated in the killings and handover suspected terrorist Basit Abdul Usman to the fold of the law,” Tanjusay said.
