“DAP, at its very core, is nothing but Presidential pork barrel with a fancy name.”

Nagpakita ng suporta noong Huwebes ang Civil Law Student Council at Legislative Board sa mga naihaing impeachment complaints laban kay Pangulong Aquino.

Ayon sa kanilang opisyal na pahayag sa Facebook, sila’y naniniwala na kinakailangang sumailalim sa impeachment ang pangulo upang managot sa Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).

    “We believe that impeachment is a necessary constitutional process that the President has to be subjected to in order to be held accountable for the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) which has been unanimously held unconstitutional by the Supreme Court,” ayon sa kanilang pahayag.

Binatikos nila ang paggamit sa paghihirap ng mga mamamayan upang pangatwiranan ang iligal na paggastos ng pera ng bayan.

Bukod dito, pinuna nila ang pagwaldas ng bilyun-bilyong piso sa mga proyektong hindi sumailalim sa “constitutional process of scrutiny and legislation” ng kongreso.

“We find no reason why the DAP projects could not have stood scrutiny through legislation and be formalized in the annual General Appropriations Act or in a supplemental budget law. That these projects did not stand such legislative deliberation casts great doubt on the unilateral execution of DAP-funded projects,” anila.

Ayon sa CLSC, handa silang gumawa ng karagdagang aksyon upang hamunin ang DAP kung patuloy na magbubulag-bulagan ang kongreso sa mga kamalian ng Pangulo.

“We will continue to take an active role in pursuing genuine social change as future lawyers of our nation.”
