Sen. Cayetano dares Trillanes: Let’s resign from the Senate together
Senator Alan Peter Cayetano challenged Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to resign together. As Trillanes accused Cayetano of alleged ouster plot against Senate President “Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III.
Cayetano reacted that those allegations of Trillanes were just figment of imagination.
“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.
Cayetano said he has no plan to oust Pimentel and it will be useless.
“It’s useless, sisirain ko lang ang pangalan ko kasi wala akong magagawa within five months. I wanted it when I thought I had 12 months (in the Senate),” he said.
In a text response of Trillanes to Cayetano, he said, “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.”
Cayetano said he already confront those issue to Pimentel. He offered to resign because he knows that Duterte will appoint him sooner.
“So sabi ko kay Senator Koko, pare kung gusto mo pipirma ako, magre-resign ako ng Senate tutal tutulong ako sa Pangulo at pagdating ng middle ng 2017 kukunin ako ng ating Pangulo para tumulong sa kanya,” Cayetano said.
“If ako ang problema, and you don’t want me in the Senate…Sabi nya (Pimentel), pare walang ganun, you’re welcome here, kelangan ka namin, tulong- tulong tayo,” he added.
