The Palace said Thursday it is no longer surprised that Pampanga Rep. Gloria Arroyo filed a resolution seeking amendments in the Constitution in her first day in office.
“She wanted to amend the Constitution, that’s something not surprising for us,” Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said.
Lacierda said Aquino may not have been informed of Arroyo’s move yet because he is constantly meeting with visitors.
However, it is possible that Aquino talk to his allies at the House of Representatives to block Arroyo’s filed resolution, said Lacierda.
“Let the legislative process take its course,” Lacierda added. “It’s not something we are very bothered with. It’s something we expected from the start.”
