Enrile’s bid to quit rejected

By |

MANILA, Philippines – Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile retained his seat as head of the chamber after a vote of 11-3 Monday.

Before offering his resignation, Enrile lashed out at the media and Senators Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Antonio Trillanes IV during a privilege speech.

Enrile made the motion in response to the earlier statement of Trillanes that a move to oust him was almost ready and was awaiting only a few more senators to complete the required 13 members.

“The persistent attacks of my adversaries, whether they be my loud and bitter critics or those lurking in the shadows for lack of courage to come out in the open, abated by some elements in the media, have successfully poisoned the minds of the public,” Enrile said in his privilege speech.

“The criticisms are based on outright lies, distorted information, and deliberately misleading phrases such as ‘cash gifts,’ ‘Christmas bonuses,’ and worst of all ‘bribes,'” Enrile said.

He said that his critics have dragged the entire Senate as an institution “under a dark cloud” and has damaged the reputation and integrity of the Senate.

He pointed in particular to one media entity with the slogan “Balanced News, Fearless Views” which he said was “carrying on a crusade to [portray him] as a liar, traitor, thief, and villain.”

Enrile had received heavy criticism after he disbursed to 18 senators P1.6 million pesos as additional maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) December last year. The money was said to have come from savings in the Senate budget.

Four senators however had received only P600,000 as MOOE. They were Senators Santiago, Trillanes and the Cayetano siblings.

Enrile had also given P250,000 to all 22 senators which was said to have come from savings of the office of the Senate President. Santiago had returned the P250,000 she received.

Santiago, who lashed out at Enrile for the cash gifts, was whining because she and the others had not received their P1.6 million MOOE, Enrile said. Senator Pia Cayetano had actually been following up with his office about her MOOE, he added.

“Santiago and her group branded me as immoral, illegal, unconstitutional, unconscionable,” Enrile said.

“Both Alan Cayetano and Trillanes swiftly followed with their own attacks and accusations. Pia Cayetano, who was following up on her won MOOE, was conspicuously silent,” Enrile said.

Enrile said that he has “never bribed anyone to gain support for myself, much less with the money of the people.”

“The very thought that this position is for sale, repulses me truly, but apparently Senator Santiago thinks that everything and everyone in this Senate has a price tag,” Enrile said.

‘Cowards and hypocrites’

He further lashed out at one senator whom he said was “so desperate that he has repeatedly and shamelessly invoked and sought Malacañang’s involvement and intervention just to get enough support to oust me.”

Enrile said he will not be threatened by anyone “least of all by cowards and hypocrites” nor will he “run away like those who make a show of it in plush hotels and run away like a dog with their tails [between their legs]”

Enrile was obviously referring to Senator Trillanes, who as a navy officer in 2007 led a rebellion with almost 30 soldiers and civilians to him at the Manila Peninsula against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. They were all later arrested by the military.

“This wave of systematic demolition is really nothing new to me; I can defend myself on my own,” Enrile said.

“I have fought many battles alone, at times abandoned and betrayed by many,” Enrile said. “I have incurred the bitter resentment and anger of many people along my way, and they are determined to pursue their crusade, and carry their sitting hatred against me to their grave,” he said.

Enrile said that the Senate itself should not “suffer the venom which is aimed solely at me.”

    but senators voting 11-3-2  rejected his bid to quit. …. ..this shows that this senators ramaining has no capability to take office as a senate president. Better disolve that senate and be out of our government system…. actually its just a redundant function of the congress and NO NECESSITY AT ALL. This senate is just an additional burden in the shoulders of taxpayers of the Philippines. Shame on this senators cannot handle a seat of senate presidency! This is a very BAD INFLICATION TO THE ABILITY OF THIS SENATE CONGRESS MEMBERS! pOOr decission in getting forward!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YCKUR3MGWTP2VX3GL3MVCVH3UQ Adiktos

    The possibility is that the Senators had a hidden agenda and that is not to give Sen. Enrile the privileged of a graceful exit, but instead to humiliate him  that he was ousted.

    I don’t know much about the constitutions of the Phils. but can the President dissolve the Senate? or through Military coup only that this could happen?

    I understand that the Government is composed of three branches, but it is possible?

    But wait!!!!  PNoy may want to withold the pork barrel of the senators for keeping this old dirty man as their President.  Once that happens, it will be an entirely new ball game.  They will bow to the wishes of a higher bidder.  OUST ENRILE.  BETTER, IMPEACH ENRILE AND HIS KAKAMPI!!!!!!!!

      • poltergeist_fuhrer

        nakompromiso siya kasi 2 ang grupo ni penoy…BALAY and SAMAR…if he will oust enrile, he will antagonize the SAMAR group…and this will be the start of the real opposition led by Binay…it is u hu shud dig deeper..

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/UARTQ67N5L6UUO6TPEWXU7NMOY Iceman

        Pwede rin yan, pero parang sa tingin ko si Binay ang sumasakay sa popularidad ni P-noy na kapag inantagonize nya si P-noy maapketuhan yung kandidatura nya sa 2016, siguro its more of programs na pwede nyang maipagpatuloy kung ok ang SP sa mga sinusulong nya ang ayaw maapektuhan ni P-noy at magbackfire sa kanya kaya ayaw nya suportahan yung change of leadership sa senado

    Why did not he resign?  How could the senators vote that the position of senate president is vacant if it is not and actually occupied by a greed-to-power senator?  He should resign if he is really wants to vacate the position rather than filing a motion that the position is vacant when in actual it is not.

    Greed the enrile!

    Ang bata kung kulang ang binigay mo iiyak hanggang sa mapatid ang litid. Si Miriam, naputulan daw ng ugat sa mata o sa utak dahil sa tantrum kasi dinabigyan ng katulad ng ibang senador.
    Siempre papalag si Miriam. Gusto ni Miriam mas malaki ang hati sa kanya.

    Noon ba pumalag si Miriam?  Naku hinde. Kinuha pa nga niyang Ninong si Manong Johnny. Yan ang style ni Miriam, kung pawala na ang power mo, aalis na yan. Lipad ng lipad yan hangang may masipsip. Kung wala nang mahuthut, parang vampire hahanap uli ng ibang kikitlan ng leeg at masisipsip na dugo. 

    Ngayon gustong magpapansin kay P-Noy, Todo suporta sa RH. Pero noon, suportado nia si Corona. Iniwanan na nia si Corona. 

    Sa nangyari ngayon mukhang basang sisiw na naman si Miriam. Pahinga muna sabi ni Esperanza “Condom” Cabral malakas ang kalaban lalo na andian si Ping. Ping Ping Ping sila ni Ping. Iiyak at tatawa na naman si Miriam, tapos titingin sayo na parang owl ang mga mata at para kang kakainin.

      Your comments are rude, misleading and uneducated.

      1. It is not Miriam who publicized about Enrile giving out cash to senators. Inquirer published that scoop.

      2. Miriam is pro-RH eversince Noynoy even declared his stand in the issue.

      3. Miriam is not pro-Corona, rather, anti-impeachment of the Chief Justice. Were you even listening/watching throughout the impeachment trial? She stands by the belief that failure to declares assets is not ground for impeachment.

      4. Miriam has nothing to gain politically in this. She’s leaving the Philippine politics for her position in The Hague, is not running for re-election, and it’s too presumptuous for you to say that she’s doing this to gain power.

        But Miriam accepted also 600,000 last November,  and since as it is claimed  that this has been a tradition in the Senate, thus, Miriam has also been receiving some amount the previous years.  Therefore, she is not as innocent as she claims to be!  I salute her for putting this issue into public’s eye, but that won’t exonerate her from what she received last November and the previous years.

    Circus sa Senado!!!  Sino ba naman ang di boboto na manatili si Enrile kung milyon-milyon piso na kaban ng bayan ang ipinapamahagi sa mga Senador ???  Wala na talagang pag-asa itong bayan natin kung magpapatuloy na ganyan ang pagiisip ng mga nasa gobyerno.  Tama na, Sobra na ang kurakot !!!!

  • mad_as_Hamlet

    I hope our Senators can see now how Mr. Sen. Enrile cast the “Christmas gift of discord” and used it for his “divide et impera” stroke.   A tactic premised on the greed and egos of the targets.  But it is never too late.  He can still be ousted.  The recent motion was but a farce.

    • where_I_stand

      GAA or budget law allowed Enrile to realign the Senate savings and share the same to the senators as additional MOOE. This fund is subject to liquidation and audit.

      Is it a Christmas gift? The problem arises not because of the giving of additional MOOE. It becomes an issue when the 4 senators got only Php 600,000. Upon knowing that there were no additional MOOE for their respective offices, they started complaining. Prior to their protest, they do not see the evil of realigning the Senate savings into additional MOOE fund. This is a raw data that we can get from this issue. Clearly, the funds [without calling it with various names like gift, Christmas gift, or bribe] were properly channeled through the office of each Senator. Clearly, the fund is not a Christmas gift to be used for whatever personal purposes without conditions.

      Is it a Christmas gift of discord? It became a discord when one of the four senators, my most favorite senator, complaint that her office received only Ph250,000 [but her office got Php 600,000] to the media. The media picked up the story and it created a gigantic elephant in the room where everyone calls it by different names. All of the sudden, everyone becomes moral experts parroting the ethical phrase “It is legal but not moral”. The Inquirer has made this issue its top news item and written series of commentary designed not merely to inform but to agitate the public. If in Atimonan there was an overkill, in Inquirer there’s an overwhelming “venomous, malevolent, and sustained attacks” against Enrile. Certainly, this partisan political attack leaves bad taste in one’s mouth with 2013 elections at sight. More than discord, I see distortion of information fed by the media to the public.

      Is it a divide and rule tactic? Division–I prefer to call it plurality of opinion and viewpoint–is a permanent feature in the Senate. This is not because our senators are trouble-makers and can never have a consensus among themselves. This is due to the fact that we adhere to democracy where plurality is inevitable. Our Senate is not governed by a dictator who cannot tolerate dissenting voices. This division or plurality in the Senate became more visible and more palpable during the crucial time in our history, like the recent impeachment of CJ Corona. In the case at hand, the unequal distribution of additional MOOE only highlighted this division or plurality.

      If there’s a divide and rule tactic in our land, it is the prevailing inequality in our land, where the ruling elites continue to exploit our resources for their own selfish interest and that of the “absentee colonizer” (neocolonialism) in the form of instituting trade policies in favor of its multinational corporations.

      Greed and egos? The additional MOOE is subject to liquidation and audit. So far, there’s no audit reports yet to determine if the funds are used for personal purposes. The accusation that the funds are used to feed one’s greed and egos is premature and lack of basis. In short, likhang-isip.

      • mad_as_Hamlet

        Perhaps I would half-consider agreeing with you if it weren’t Mr. Sen. Enrile that we’re talking about. The legal nomenclature, justification, and purpose of the dole are irrelevant.  The smaller amount given to the four senatore was obviously intended as a bait. They took it.  It hurt the egos of the four and set them up as against the greed of the rest.  Just look at the results—-what Mr. Sen. Enrile accomplished.  A masterful “caesarean” stroke.

    Political Moro Moro, the art of cover up to the actual goal so that the real motive would be kept secret. In short, Enrile and his allies planned earlier that he shall announce during a session to quit so naturally a rejection be motioned then a voting takes place but as planned he will win. The real motive is to showboat to the public that Enrile still has the confidence of the majority likewise exacting sympathy and support from the public.

  • wawa2172

    I guess were emotionally involved and we may be barking on the wrong tree as far as the additional MOOE is concern. Some sector want chaos in the senate and they are bit successful even if they do not have the number. At first I was so angry with the word bonus but all the while hindi naman pala because its additional MOOE where senators will have to liquidate the funds. What dismayed me though was COA’s Pulido Tan statement that senators do not attached receipts to liquidate the funds but just mere certification of expenses. However, Ms. Tan evaded the issue if the additional MOOE and cash gifts are illegal. The COA has issued a statement that the additional funds and cash gifts are provided for in GAA si it means walang nilabag na batas si Enrile. Dahilan lang na di nakatangap ang ibang senador that they voted against Enrile.

    A dramatic speech but I remember again the time of Martial Law in which he a co-author…more people missing and wealth of the Philippines just goes to a circle of freinds and close cabinet by Marcoses including Sen. Enrile. Maybe, this is the only time for Sen. Enrile to remember the past of Dectator  that never forget and will never….the roaring of the victims of Martial Law can still be heard in the darkness and the shadow of it still alive the the hearts of the families. Sen. Enrile A planner and strategiest that already known by the people of the Republic of the Philippines. Lately sen. Enrile did it again a Martial Law style….he keep the money and giveth to the choosen fellow senators, in which taken from the taxpayers coffers!

  • mangtom

    The Enrile strategy: 

    First he distributes “Christmas gift” to his favored colleagues taken from taxpayers’ pockets. Siempre may utang na loob na ang mga “lucky” recipients. 

    Second, he offers to resign. Nabili na niya yong mga votes, siyempre he gets votes to keep his Senate President position. 

    Mababaw yan, Enrile.

    It seem Mr. Enrile’s Christmas gift worked!  Who wants to get rid of someone who gives you gifts in the millions!  They had a chance to make great changes in the Philippines but instead they went with the status quo and kept an old relic of the Marcos era.  Just in case anyone forgets,  It was during his dictatorship that the Philippines went into economy abyss, standard of living was abysmal and Filipinos became the servants of the world.

       The reason why no body is interested to be a Senate president  to replace Enrile is becuase Enrile’s  term will be over in a few days and the senate sessions will recess and will reopen after May 2013 with a new set of senators. Enrile will be gone by that time.

      Who would want to be a senate president for few days only?

      It’s a wise move by the senate to retain Enrile in the remaining few days of his term.

      Why this fuss about this issue?

  • manual47

    Told you…..”money talks”.   Enrile didn’t have to say anything to these senators.  They voted for him to stay as paid loyalty in the amount of 1.6 million.  If Enrile really wants to prove to the filipinos his honest decision, he would have just leave regardless of the vote.  The vote can be bought and that’s the fact.  Filipinos have had enough of this so called “drama” or political spectacle.  It’s up to Enrile to show his true and meaningful exit to the filipinos…….by leaving without prejudice.   Only then he will see if the people will react positively or negatively.  It’s the people who he suppose to serve will judge him   Leave with dignity with your own free  will…….and not to be persuaded by these paid cohorts in the senate.  It’s paid loyalties.

  • Beguine

    It’s all so confusing.

    A senator’s vote is worth only P1.6 million and a bit more (P250,000)?

    There must be more than that amount under the table!

    Anyway, this only confirms mukhang pera silang lahat. Even just
    a few million is sufficient to buy integrity and principle and what’s
    best for the people. which is the removable of Enrile.

    What’s best for the people as we can all see has just filled these senators pockets,
    not significant amounts of money by their standard as they’re used to getting
    much bigger windfalls but in any case likely ending up just the same
    in their bank accounts instead of being spent for the people’s benefit.

Ramos ay sumasampa pa sa bakod ng Crame at kumakaway pa sa mga tao ng walang hawak na armas. Nung makatawid siya sa Crame. nagkulong siya sa isang kuwarto at lumabas lang siya nang matapos na ang lahat. Samantalang si Gen Ramos, nagjojoging pa sa paligid ng Crame tuwing umaga ng walang hawak na armas.

  • http://twitter.com/absurdword Jose Mateo S. Boza

    Of course the other Senators voted to retain Enrile. It’s a brilliant move by Enrile, offering his resignation to senators that he’s just given 1.8 million pesos to. He knew they wouldn’t accept his resignation, and why would they, after a “gift” like that? His “resignation” and privileged speech was all a carefully thought-out ruse, meant to twist public sympathy in his favor. Read between the lines, it’s just another depth of depravity that he has taken our Senate into.

He wants to sell his PR campaign to the country that he’s no evil, fortunately many filipinos still and will remember the name JUAN PONCE ENRILE as the main administrator of the brutal martial law rule.  WHY NOT RESIGN NOW? ,WHY WAIT FOR HIS FELLOW CORRUPT SENATORS TO GIVE HIM THE VOTE OF CONFIDENCE ?  Admit it !

    The overwhelming support by the senators to the leadership of Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile is a fact that no rhetoric can dislodged. Fact has a stubborn character. The sophist in us is silenced by its eloquence. Of course, the leadership in the Senate can be changed anytime of the year. Politics in the Philippines, short for being called unstable, defies predictability. Expect the unexpected.

    Haters are groping with a variety rationalization to support their myopic vision. They claimed that the senators are blinded by the Enrile’s charisma, either by his person or his gift, or both. There’s no compelling reason for the senators to unseat Enrile, unless the naked power in Malacanang starts to meddle again in the legislative.

    In today’s news by Inquirer “3 suspected thieves slain in ‘real’ shootout in Laguna”.
