Binay appointees should also quit – Palace

4

Vice President Jejomar Bi¬nay’s appointees should also resign now that he’s no longer in the Cabinet, a Malacañang official said on Saturday.

“My understanding is it is the norm, that should in any time—and I’m not referring only to the Vice President—any time that a Cabinet secretary resigns from a portfolio or a position, it is conventional for his team, the team that he brought in, to also tender their courtesy resignations to the President,” Palace deputy spokesman Abigail Valte said on state-run dzRB radio.

Valte was referring to the officials in agencies under the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC).

Binay served as HUDCC chair and presidential adviser for overseas Filipino workers affairs for five years.


But Valte said it is up to these officials to “reflect” on the matter.

She explained that the courtesy resignation of Binay’s appointees will give his successor a free hand in running the agencies concerned.

“[The courtesy resignations] give whoever will be next (head) a free hand in running that particular office or that particular portfolio,” Valte said.

“In this particular case, we would leave it to the people concerned to reflect if this norm will be followed by them,” she added.

In a televised speech delivered at the Coconut Palace on Wednesday, Binay slammed the Aquino administration for being a failure and insensitive.

He said the President’s allies are desperate to bring him down because they know his anointed candidates do not stand a chance in a clean and fair elections.

  1. Lumabas na ang mga inutil at halata na ang mga hunghang sa power? Mga nagaagawan sa puwesto mga nagkakagatan, ito ang mga ugali at custombre ng mga poltiko sa Pilipinas! Mga makapal ang mga mukha, mga walanghiya! Mga magnanakaw lang sa kaban ng bayan…halatang-halata sa mga sinasabi. Walang pagkakaiba sa isa’t isa kundi pare-pareho lang – di tinatablan, kahit ano ang sabiin mo sa kahit kanino, wala ng hiya kahit sa sarili man lang. Walang self-respect kundi makapagnakaw lang at magawa ang gusto sa sarili. Self serving at garapal na! Sobra na ang politika sa atin. Walang sisinuhin, lahat makapal! Hayok na hayok! Grabe, wala na nga akong maapuhap o magamit na salita kung paano ang makakapagbago sa mga hayop na ito, mga beast, mga gunggong! Ewan ko kung paano aasenso ang bayan natin sa mga inuugali ng Malacanang Tenant, mga oppositionist…walang matino, walang maitang kahit katiting na pag-asa. Lalong lumala ang gobyerno, mga sinungaling! Walang turing. Sobra! Grabe!

    The resignation tendered by the VP is a noble act that should be followed by all government officials. We have seen how grossly incompetent our president is and particularly all members of his cabinet. I am afraid that when PIGNOY and COMPANY get down, we will find out that our government is already bancrupt. This is the only president whom I have seen with so many spokepersons talking conficting statements with each other. Special mention to Avigail Valte, YOU ARE ONE OF THE USELESS APPOINTESS OF PIGNOY. You must tender your resignation ASAP and convince your BOSS to come together …all of you. ARE`NT YOU THROUGH STEALING THE PEOPLES` MONEY? ” ANG KAKAPAL NG MGA MUKHA AT BALAT NINYO”
