SECOND district Representative Lilia Nuño, a Nacionalista Party (NP) stalwart, said she is not in favor to impeach President Benigno Aquino III.
Nuño made the announcement Saturday during the Issues in the News, a weekend public affairs program of the Zamboanga Press Club Incorporated (ZPCI) carried live over DXVP of the Catholic Media Network (CMN) radio program.
Nuño said that not only her but including her colleagues in the NP are not and will not support any impeachment complaint filed against the President.
“Kami sa Nacionalista, we will not support,” Nuño said.
At least three impeachment complaints had been filed against President Aquino.
The impeachment complaints were filed by lawyer Oliver Lozano, former government official Augusto Syjucos Jr., and members of militant groups including two former lawmakers.
Nuño said all the development undertakings of the government that are already in place will be derailed once President Aquino will be impeached.
She said it will also affect all of the projects that are also already in the pipeline.
“We will start again from the beginning,” she said in vernacular.
