Lamig ulo muna: Castelo says ‘impeachment ceasefire’ needed


Enough with all this heated impeachment talk.

Quezon City 2nd district Rep. Winston Castelo on Saturday (March 18) called for an “impeachment ceasefire” between the supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo.

“Let’s cool our heads and calm our hearts and place the good of the nation above partisan politics,” Castelo said.

The politiko made the appeal following the filing of an impeachment case against President Duterte before the House of Representatives (HOR) Thursday.

This was countered somewhat by Duterte ally, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, with a threat to impeach Robredo, whom he believed was behind the moves to oust the President.

“Impeaching the top two leaders of the country — whether or not either succeeds– will get us nowhere and only make things worse for our already divided nation,” Castelo commented.

As such, he advised the allies of Duterte and Robredo as well as his colleagues in Congress “not to get carried by emotions and let sobriety prevail.”
