• Palace prepares for High Court ruling on DAP


    MALACAñANG is ready to face whatever the Supreme Court (SC) decision will be on the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).

    Its spokesperson Edwin Lacierda on Wednesday said they will take necessary steps to address an unfavorable decision if that will be the case.

    “If it is favorable to us, well and good, if it’s not favorable to us, then we will take the necessary measure to look into it and see what legal remedies we can avail of,” Lacierda told a news briefing.

    “But right now, it’s too early to say. We will wait for the decision of the Supreme Court,” he said.

    The Manila Times earlier reported that majority of the SC justices believe that the DAP is unconstitutional.

    But Lacierda said they trust that the Solicitor General “will be prepared to respond to any decision of the Supreme Court as he is mandated to do.”

    “I suppose the Solicitor General has pleaded the case as best as he could and we believe that he argued with passion on the case,” the Palace official added.
