READ: The President’s Wish on His Impeachment Process

“Go for the truth” is what President Rodrigo Duterte insisted on the House of the Representatives when they started the impeachment process against him on Monday, May 16.

Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano’s impeachment was the first to be decided sufficiency in form and substance from the House committee on the preliminary hearing.

This is the first step taken by Congress before conducting a full-blown hearing to determine the nonexistence or existence of probable cause to impeach the Duterte.

In the press conference in Hong Kong that President Duterte attended, his statement was “I expect them to go for the truth. Kung ano ‘yung totoo ‘yun na ‘yon,”

Betrayal of public trust for ordering the killings of numbers of drug suspects; garnering P2 billion in unidentified wealth; and abandoning his duty of protecting Philippine territory from China’s aggressive incursions are what Alejano is accusing the President.

One-third vote of the House’s supermajority is what Alejano should earn to proceed on the impeachment complain to the Senate
