AN IMPEACHMENT complaint has been filed against President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the House of Representatives, urging the legislature to oust her from office for alleged voter fraud during the 2004 elections.
Arroyo must be removed for “betrayal of public trust arising from the ‘Gloriagate’ tapes,” lawyer Oliver Lozano told local radio after lodging the complaint at the Office of the Secretary General, according to a separate report on GMA Network’s “Flash Report.”
“No politician is behind me,” Lozano said. “I do it for a cause.”
People are taking to the streets once again, I heard. A new president, anyone?
