Official statement of Susan Roces

I received this directly from Susan Tagle, her assistant:

Pahayag ni Susan Roces

Nais ko pong batiin ang mga miyembro ng gabinete at iba’t ibang sector at partido na nakiisa sa aking panawagan na magbitiw na sa pwesto si Mrs. Arroyo dahil sa kawalan niya ng karapatan na mamuno pa sa ating bansa. Sa kritikal na yugto na ito ng ating kasaysayan, mahalagang isaisip ng bawat mamamayan, lalong-lalo na ang mga namumuno sa ating bansa, ang kapakanan ng sambayanan at isantabi ang personal na mga interest. Sa mga pagbabagong magaganap sa mga darating na araw, kasama ko ang ating mga kababayan sa kanilang kahilingan at panawagan na makilahok sa isang mapayapang paghubog ng magandang bukas para sa bawa’t mamamayan. Buo ang aking paniniwala at pananampalataya na malalampasan natin ang mga pagsusubok na kinakaharap natin sa kasulukuyan sa isang mapayapang paraan bilang isang bansa at isang lahi. Mabuhay po ang sambayanang Pilipino!

English translation:

I wish to greet the members of the cabinet and different sectors and political parties that have united behind my call for Mrs. Arroyo to relinquish power because she has lost her right to lead our country. At this critical chapter in our history, it is imperative for every citizen, particularly those leading our country, to bear in mind the best interests of the country and to set aside their personal interests. With the changes that will take place in the coming days, I am with our countrymen in their their aspirations and demands to participate in achieving a peaceful and beautiful tomorrow for each citizen. I wholeheartedly believe and pray that we will pass the challenges that we face at present, in a peaceful way, as one nation and one people. Long live the Filipino nation!

This is her official, exact, statement.

Update: I asked Susan Tagle for confirmation if Susan Roces backs JV Ejercito’s call for a transitional government. Her reply:

If necessary. In her last presscon last week, she mentioned that Noli is protecting/siding with someone who is wrong.

The ball is in the Vice-President’s court. For now, Susan Roces hasn’t made a decision. For now, she is supporting Cory’s call. For now, the widows have tentatively united.

    nasa gershwin mood ako while reading this article:

    How I love you, how I love !
    My dear ol’ Swanee
    I’d give the world to be
    Among the folks in
    D-I-X-I-E-ven no[w]My mammy’s
    Waiting for me
    Praying for me
    Down by the Swanee
    The folks up north will see me no more
    When I go to the Swanee Shore !

    —–naku if i know, yung mga dswters ni Doc Vera Perez, si Manay Gina (de venecia) at Manay Ichu (Maceda, Tita Swanee’s amiga) eh
    nag e-exchange notes yan 🙂

    Hollywood talaga ang psyche ng mga Pinoy!

    good luck na lang sa transitional government daw na yan… kung aalis si gloria, ok pa, pero ang bumalik ang mga estrada sa pamamagitan nang panggagamit, ay leche, kahit sunod-sunod na EDSA 3,4,5 pa.. dadating ako, kahit walang bayad… d ba mayor Binay?

    philippines bloodless “people power” is first in the guiness book. but according yo time magazine, frequent overthrow no matter how bloodless of a legitimate government can result to anarchy. cory people power was ripe because we have been under more than 20 years of repression ubder a dictatorship. eraps bloodless overthrow was lessons learned and a warning. But to repeat it for gma is tragic. it will only prove that behind the bloodless people power is the hippocrisy of filipinos, pretending to be champions of democracy but but totally blind to the rule of law and order.

    To SUSAN, the one who posted the message inviting us to visit http://www.susanroces.com, Congratulations for coming up with a great site, to its moderator, please feel free to visit two more sites of Ms. Roces thru the Film Academy of the Philippines official website http://www.fapweb.org Then go to the LINKS and you’ll see 2 Susan Roces sites. Then feel free to use those pictures in your http://www.susanroces.com site. There are hundreds of pictures there. More power and long live the Queen of All Movie Queen.

    Just to make a stand, I don’t want Susan Roces to run for President because she’s already a Queen, why step lower.

    To her detractors, well, do your research more and see how great her life is, then compare with your own lives. If you have nothing nice to say to others, better keep your mouth shut coz it only reflects your own personality and character, unless you’re a Susan Roces who has every right to put the Gollum of Malacañang out of office.

    […] TV station ABC 5 reports that Susan Roces will speak (or will have a statement read on her behalf) at this street corner. [Manuel Quezon III has a copy – Ed.] […]
