Senator Alan Peter Cayetano posed a challenge on Friday to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV: Let’s resign from the Senate together.
Cayetano issued the challenge as he denied Trillanes’ allegation that he was leading an alleged ouster plot against Senate President “Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III.
Such allegation, he said, was just Trillanes’ “figment of imagination” as he had no plans to snatch the Senate leadership from Pimentel.
“Kung tingin ni Senator Trillanes ako ang problema, di sabay kaming mag resign kahit bukas. Kasi ako baligtad ang tingin ko, tingin ko sya ang problema sa Senado e,” Cayetano said at a press conference.
(If Senator Trillanes thinks I’m the problem, then I dare him to resign with me from the Senate, as early as tomorrow even. Because the way I see it, he’s the problem in the Senate.)
Sought for comment, Trillanes said in a text message: “Sya na muna kasi sya yung nangako na magre-resign kung hindi maso -solve yung crime, corruption at illegal drugs within three to six months.”
(He should go first because he’s the one who promised to resign if the crime, corruption and illegal drugs problems are not solved within three to six months.)
