Rep. Alcover warns against forging a coalition government with the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF

ANAD Rep. Pastor M. Alcover Jr., warned against forging a coalition government with the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF saying, “. . . . this sends not only chilling signals but definitely is indicative of a tragic paradigm shift where government is strongly contemplating to employ corrective measures on the alleged wrongs in the country . . . in tandem with a group who, during its 42 years of insurgency, has not only shown its ruthlessness, violent and inhuman character but its skillful and unrelenting lies and deceit against government and the Filipino people.”

In a privilege speech before Congress, yesterday (January 31), Rep. Alcover sought government’s clarification on its position to be presented during the forthcoming formal peace negotiations with the Maoist terrorist CPP-NPA-NDF in Oslo, Norway.

Reacting to GRP panel head Atty. Alex Padilla’s statement published in a national newspaper (pp A12, Philippine Daily Inquirer, January 20, 2011) that “. . . . . .There is a lot of hope. . . .We’d rather have the NDF as a partner in trying to change what is wrong in the country than fighting it”, Rep. Alcover said, “Clearly Atty. Padilla is insinuating a possible joint effort between government and the Maoist terrorist CPP under a coalition government.”

“Haven’t we learned anything from the lessons of Nepal? Is the Nepal experience being slowly replicated in this country?” asked Rep. Alcover referring to the sad state of affairs of Nepal, a country in the Himalayas, whose people continue to reel in hardship as the country is plunged back into turmoil when Prachanda, the chairman of the Communist Party of Nepal resigned as Prime Minister after Nepalese President Ram Baran Yadav refused to sack the Nepalese Chief of the Army Staff.

Looking forward to a bleak scenario where the peace talks would fail, Rep. Alcover said, “. with a heavy heart, ANAD explicably would say that the forthcoming peace talk is doomed to fail . . . because of government’s attitude of not being true to its policy of transparency.”

He called on Congress to conduct an investigation, in aid of legislation, “. . . to shed light on the issues, facts, and other relevant informations surrounding the forthcoming peace talks, and invite Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, Atty. Alex Padilla, head of the government panel, Sec. Teresita Quintos-Deles of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP), and other personalities, as resource persons,” he stressed.
