In an interview, Gilbert Teodoro was asked the question “What is the first thing you would do if elected as president?”
Teodoro’s reply was that his first order of business will be to urge Congress to pass a law asking for a Constitutional Convention. He wants a parliamentary system, specifically “presidential, unicameral” system. OK sounds good enough but wait… read these links.

Aha! So if you put the pieces together, it will seem that Teodoro got GMA’s endorsement as the administration’ s presidential candidate but in exchange Teodoro will try to use his presidential influence on Congress to form a parliamentary system so that GMA will be in a very good position to become the Prime Minister and possibly for life, not difficult a task for GMA since the Lakas-Kampi- CMD coalition holds the majority in Congressand GMA controls the coalition!!!
Very sneaky move indeed by GMA and Teodoro if my hunch proves correct!
So if Teodoro wins, then forget about having the Arroyos prosecuted for their ill gotten wealth. You can also expect more poverty, more corruption, more patronage politics, more hopelessness for Juan de la Cruz … basically much more of the same things the Philippines is already getting from the GMA administration.
