Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel, Jr. (PDP-Laban) today said President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, true to her own rhetoric, was just weaving a fairy tale, when she drew up her vision of the Philippines in the future and asked her countrymen to join her in the journey to the Enchanted Kingdom of First World success.

GMA reveals her Enchanted Kingdom world view, her Gotterdammerung, where she will be queen and everyone else a serf ministering to her whim! Or a clown to make her laugh, Pimentel said.

Pimentel said that the President, instead of making false promises to the people, should heed their clamor for her resignation. He said the people also want the President to be held accountable for her abuse of powers and misdeed in office, including the despicable killings of militants and journalists who have been critical of her government.

He said the Presidents resignation will pave the way to the election of a new leader without the stigma of electoral fraud and corruption and who will enjoy the respect and trust of the people.
