Progressive groups press for President Benigno Aquino’s resignation after both the Philippine National Police Board of Inquiry and the Senate revealed he is accountable for the death of police troopers in the Janaury 25th Mamasapano incident.
In a rally at Mendiola, Manila last March 20, the explained that such a call is within the bounds of the Constitution.
The rally also came at the heels of the March 1-7 Pulse Asia survey showing that while 42 percent are not in favor of Aquino’s resignation, 29 percent are for it and 28 percent are undecided.
“This shows that 57% to 58% of respondents are open to idea of the President’s resignation. This is a very significant change in public opinion and shows how Aquino’s support has dramatically eroded,” former Bayan Muna representative Teddy Casino said.
