PGMA should spare Gonzalez from bringing more embarrassment to himself and make him retire

Anakpawis Representative and political detainee Crispin Beltran today said that because Malacanang itself was not keen on laying down sanctions and disciplinary, administrative action against justice secretary Raul Gonzalez, there was no genuine hope that the Commission on Elections (Comelec) will be able to do anything about Gonzalez.

We expect that Sec. Gonzalez will once more get away with all his outrageous remarks and comments. He has Malacanang's backing, and so long as Gonzalez is firing bullets in defense of the Macapagal-Arroyo administration and its Team Unity, Gonzalez will remain untouchable. Gonzalez has no iota of shame left in his body, and this is all to the benefit of Malacanang," he said.

"Since it appears that he will only listen to her and her alone, Pres. Arroyo should subject Gonzalez to a thorough scolding: after all, he has been speaking and acting like a spoiled and petulant child. His conduct has been most unbecoming of a government official and the head of an important institution," he said.

Beltran, however, said that if Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo wants to save herself from the continued embarrassment of having an official in her cabinet who continuously reflects badly on her, she should push for Gonzalez' retirement. "He has won for himself an infamous reputation even among members of the international human rights and diplomatic communities. . There is no more hope that he will be able to change his tact and take on controversial political issues wherein Malacanang is being pushed against the wall. Sec. Gonzalez should be saved from himself, at least because he will leave government service with the most tainted and disreputable reputation," he said.

"Since Sec. Gonzalez will not resign on his own volition and on for health reasons, for political expediency he should be made to retire. Pres. Arroyo must spare Sec. Gonzalez from bringing more embarrassment to himself. She should at least do this personal favor for Gonzalez and save him from himself." #
