The moment it was floated that President Rodrigo Duterte may run for Vice President in tandem with his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, who is desirous to run for President in 2022, I immediately issued a press statement almost five months ago on January 28, 2021 wherein I torpedoed the projected familial hegemony as a blatant circumvention of the constitutional ban that the “President shall not be eligible for any reelection.”

IT is perplexing and embarrassing that while the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic is overwhelmingly disastrous to the Filipinos’ health and the country’s economy, the Duterte administration’s response is by inadequate phases and anemic installments.

IMPEACHMENT is an awesome power constitutionally vested in the Congress. It is shared by the House of Representatives which has the exclusive power to initiate and prosecute impeachment cases, and the Senate which has the sole power to try and decide such cases. For better or for worse, impeachment can reverse the electoral will when  an elected official like the president is removed, or it can negate the appointing power of the president when a presidential appointee like a justice of the Supreme Court is ousted.
