Veteran Journalist shows why the Opposition is frustrated with GMA having more power than anyone in the LP

There was a probable golden age for the Liberal Party (LP) when their leader was seated up top. Now, in only a span of two years, the infamous Philippine opposition is in a position of pure weakness and this bothers them dreadfully.

With the successful deliver of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s 3rd State of the Nation Address (SONA) and the so-called “power grab” of Pampanga Representative and former President Gloria Arroyo from House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, the opposition met expectations again, opening their mouth in the name of “their democracy” in order to destroy the former President’s political image.

Veteran Journalist Jay Sonza ponders on why the LP is going through such lengths to start babbling. In his Facebook post he wrote his realizations, the Opposition is frustrated, they are in a position of pure weakness for a huge majority of their members are either awaiting persecution, incarceration or retirement.

“bakit nagngingitngit ang mga dilawan sa pag-upo ni gma bilang speaker pf the house of representatives? dahil ba lamang siya sa inyong lahat ngayon?” Sonza asks.

He then listed down the eight names and current status of the LP party members:

1. noynoy aquino - retired, charged & awaiting reading of multiple charges of corruption, graft, plunder and homicide/murder;

2. meilu sereno - fired as chief justice dahil hindi naman pala qualified ang tinamaan ng buwenas'

3. Leila de lima - jailed/detained on charges of widespread drug trafficking/trading and protection.

4. leni robredo - fired as cabinet secretary by pres. Duterte & considered grossly incompetent;

5. mar roxas - awaiting detention for charges of plunder, graft and corruption committed while serving as secretary of DILG/DOTC;

5. risa hontiveros - outgoing senator (for reelection) & awaiting plunder charges involving P10 billion & almost P2 billion Philhealth Funds.

6. sonny trillanes - outgoing senator (last term) & facing criminal charges before pasay regional trial court

7. Conchita morales - a perceived defender but retired just today as Ombudsman 

8. Koko Pimentel - outgoing senator (last term) & replaced senate president.

If the readers noticed something, there are three senators that weren’t listed and were the members that Sonza found either useless or incompetent.

These members and senators were specifically Bam Aquino, Kiko Pangilinan and Frank Drilon.

He ended his post reminding us on how “useful” their existence is to the government, the first two are “wala naman kuwentang nilalang ang mga iyon. Sayang ang oras,” all while commenting on Drilon’s incompetence as a drowsy Senator.

To wrap it all up, Sonza finds this generation of LP members to be truly frustrating, they were once on top and now they’re basically digging their own graves. 

And in Sonza’s perspective, this realization lead to the extreme frustration of its members, especially now that Arroyo heads the Congress and they are basically powerless.
