There's no 'Plan B,' says Palace

MANILA, May 10 — Malacanang denied it has a plan to impeach the winning president and install the vice president who comes from the Liberal Party to continue its agenda.

"Masyado yatang malawak na imahinasyon ang ginagamit sa ganyang mga scenario," Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a press briefing on Tuesday.

There is circulating report that the Palace is hatching a "Plan B" in case vice presidential bet Leni Robredo wins the second highest post in the country.

Coloma said it is just a product of the imagination. He said that impeachment could only originate from Congress and there is still no assurance if the composition of a new Congress would be dominated by the administration.

"Para namang ‘di natin binibigyang-galang ang institusyon ng Kamara de Representantes kung agad-agad tayong tatalon doon sa ganung konklusyon, ni hindi natin alam kung sino sila…, ang 297 na mga naihalal," he explained.

This kind of thinking is reckless and irresponsible, he said, adding it's also a waste of time.

"Baka naman waste of time din ‘yun na binibigyang-pansin pa natin, samantalang meron namang mga mas makabuluhang suliranin o paksa na pwede nating harapin," he said.

Robredo and Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. are fighting for the vice presidency, with Robredo ahead in the counting with around 200,000 votes as of Tuesday afternoon. (PNA)
