President Rodrigo Duterte cannot do anything if his allies in Congress will want to push through with the impeachment case against Vice President Leni Robredo, amid his call to put an end to it.

According to Senate president Koko Pimentel, he understands the position of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez that he can’t disregard an impeachment complaint if it has basis.

Aside from this, Pimentel admits that President Duterte’s allies in Congress are not solely from PDP-Laban.

Pimentel said that the super majority coalition in Congress exists, and that there are people around the President who consider Vice President Robredo a threat to their political plans.

Meanwhile, for Senator JV Ejercito, he is against any impeachment complaint, either against the President or the Vice President because it will only create divisiveness.
