FAQs: Ed Cabanlas on the Impeachment Issue

(1) What would be your position on the impeachment issue against Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in Congress? Would you vote YES or NO?

Answer: The impeachment issue is an open-ended subject that should generate reactions from all sectors of the society. If we were to answer it in a YES or NO form, then meaningful discussions would automatically terminate as the YES and NO camps would then be busily defending their positions.

There have been countless arguments taken against and for the impeachment. I resent that the public, specially the Youth, is left-out in the process.

The matter of impeachment essentially boils down to the search for TRUTH and ACCOUNTABILITY. And when it comes to these things, only the people can make the best judgement--NOT Congressmen.

Were the impeachment complaint against the President is filed again before Congress, I will refer the matter to my constituency. Specifically, I will directly seek public opinion and sentiments on the issue through my leaders in the grassroots community. I will listen to them in forming the basis of my stand on the issue.
