Turns out the announcement was a press conference by administration congressmen led by Miguel Zubiri, they reported all’s well in their districts, no one is upset, everyone should calm down. Zubiri, according to ANC, intimated that there may have been a conspiracy stretching back a month, pointing to Ricky Carandang floating information about cabinet restlessness in the news. A comment from a fellow blogger: “That’s because they don’t read. PCIJ and other blogs were floating that long before Carandang did.”
Apparently the Palace wanted to keep media in suspense.
Tatad of the opposition as well as Tito Sotto say the opposition have decided to ask the President and Vice-President to resign; they reiterate their position that impeachment aren’t options as neither the President or Vice-President were duly-elected.
