Senator Benigno S. Aquino III on the Appointment
of Army Chief LtGen. Delfin Bangit

"This appointment is wrong. So many groups are disappointed that the neutrality of the AFP in the coming elections is severely at risk with someone as fiercely loyal to the President as LtGen. Delfin Bangit now at the helm of the AFP.

"This move is another worrying display of Mrs. Arroyo's self-interest over national interest.

"One could only hope that General Bangit will rise beyond utang na loob and perform his Constitutional duty to ensure a peaceful and fair electoral exercise in May."
