The leadership of the Senate challenged the Liberal Party Senators to condemn the impeachment case filed against President Rodrigo Duterte.

Senate President Koko Pimentel believes that the LP must prove that they have no hand in the impeachment complaint filed by the Magdalo Partylist Group against President Rodrigo Duterte.

According to Pimentel, LP must release a categorical statement in order to refute the allegations that their party is behind the impeachment charges brought up by Congressman Gary Alejano.

Meanwhile, following the impeachment case filed against the President, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez is planning to file an impeachment complaint against Vice President Leni Robredo, a member of the Liberal Party.

The LP immediately opposed the planned impeachment case. They insist that the Government must focus on its programs, rather than impeachment proceedings.

Alvarez accused Vice Pres. Robredo of being behind the impeachment complaint against Duterte, after a video of her criticizing the President’s war-on-drugs was made public.
