NR0619:On Cory's visit to Susan

News Release
June 19, 2005
From the Office of Anakpawis Rep. Crispin Beltran

Ex. President Aquino’s visit to Ms. Susan Roces an indirect sign of the former’s stand on the electoral fraud scandal

Anakpawis Representative Crispin Beltran today said that ex-president Corazon Aquino’s recent visit to Ms Susan Roces already fuels speculations that the former is not siding with Malacanang on the controversial tapes issue. He said that ex pres. Aquino has not so far issued any statement giving the incumbent president the benefit of the doubt. “And now that she’s made a visit to the widow of the rightful winner of the 2004 presidential polls, it will not be surprising if many would see this as a sign of support.”

Beltran said that Ms. Roces was indeed a source of strength for the followers of her deceased husband; “Now she is also revealing herself as a potent force to unite Filipinos against the corruption of the incumbent administration. It’s clear that the good lady does not want the political responsibility much less the public attention generated by this controversy, but be that as it may, whenever she speaks, the public will listen.”

“We can only hope that Ms. Roces will to some degree take up what her deceased husband swore to do during the election campaign – mainly to help clean up the government and root out the thieves and parasites that are bleeding the country dry.”

“This tape scandal exposes the extent of the incumbent administration’s greed and lust for power. This should compel Filipinos to seek genuine political and economic reforms, and stop the cycle of corruption in government. What the country needs are leaders that do not have personal, self-serving ambitions and truly have the Filipino people’s needs and interest at heart. Ms. Roces would make a powerful impact, even as a private citizen, issuing such statements. She has the love and respect of many Filipinos, even those who did not vote for FPJ in the last elections.”

Finally, Beltran said that Vice-President Noli de Castro is definitely not in the running to replace beleaguered President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. “There is no clamor for the veep to replace the president, but there are mounting calls to remove de Castro as well, given that the election results were also likely in his favor last May 2004,” he said. “De Castro is an unlikely candidate for the presidency. Malacanang need not worry over whatever political ambitions de Castro has.”#
