Why do I sense that the outcome of the impeachment complaint vs. GMA end up in the same manner as the 2004 Canvassing of votes in Congress?
Noong kina-canvass ang mga boto sa nakaraang presidential election, dinaan rin sa technicalities at sa "pa noted-noted" nina Kiko Pangilinan at former congressman at current DOJ secretary Raul Gonzalez. Back then, the admin allies effectively stonewalled for Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and denied the opposition's request for a recount of the disputed ERs by more than 200 times.
Everybody assumes a recount must have taken place since it took a long time for the canvassing of votes to be completed. But there was none. Most of the time was wasted on delaying tactics and technicalities by the administration allies to kill the proposed recount and "note" away all the evidence vs Arroyo.
And now, we're seeing the same thing happening again in the impeachment process.
But to those who think the opposition made a mistake by falling into the "impeachment trap" set by Arroyo's allies, mali rin kayo.
We need to go through the impeachment process para ipakita natin sa lahat na we've tried every constitutional means available to bring Arroyo to justice. It's necessary talaga.
UPDATE: Read this editorial too from Malaya.
