Former President and now Pampangga lawmaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo once again proved her critics wrong after she was elected to an international position without the help of her close friend Virgilio Garcillano. Garcillano, a former Commission on Election (Comelec), who executive was believed to be responsible in making Arroyo the president.
Arroyo has been elected to the board of directors of the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA).
Arroyo on Wednesday expressed elation and excitement over the new role, noting she has been a long-time participant in the BFA.
“I’m happy to be here at this time because with a very good relations between the Philippines and China now and under the leadership of Pres. Xi Jinping and Pres. Rodrigo Duterte, I would like to add what I can to contribute to that very good relationship,” she said in a statement.
Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez on the other hand expressed concern over Arroyo’s success fearing that his position might be in danger. Arroyo is believed to be eyeing Alvarez’s position as speaker.
“The fact that she can win in any election without the help of Garci almost makes me pee on my pants. She can use Garci again if members of House of Representatives decided to vote”, Alvarez told reporters shaking in fear on Friday.
Arroyo was accused of rigging the 2004 national Elections and Alvarez is afraid the power-hungry lawmaker will use the same dirty tactic against him to snap away his position as speaker.
