Palace hits Noynoy Aquino on people power threat

March 23, 2010 10:30 pm 

MANILA, March 23 — Deputy Presidential spokesperson Gary Olivar issued today the following statements in reaction to the reported warning by Liberal Party presidential candidate Sen. Benigno Aquino III during a campaign sortie in Pangasinan about another people power if the May elections failed:

“It seems that Sen. Aquino has finally answered our question yesterday WHY the opposition keeps trying to scare our people with all talk about election failure.

"Many of his (Sen. Aquino’s) leaders appear to have developed an unfortunate addiction to EDSA adventurism.

"It’s no longer people power we’re talking about here.

"It’s nothing but a naked threat of power grab in case the voters turn them down at the polls.

"Unluckily for them, our people have grown tired of unconstitutional shortcuts no matter how well-intentioned.

"And our uniformed services will not look kindly on any new challenge to the chain of command and the laws of the land.” (PNA)
