what is behind the resignation?

The National Broadband Network (NBN) scandal has been spreading over the news for the pass few weeks. After Joey de Venecia’s testimony and putting Commission on elections Chairman Benjamin Abalos Sr. and First Gentleman Mike Arroyo on the hot set. On the day of JDV pronouncement FG Mike Arroyo is out of the country. The ZTE deal has been the subject of a Senate and House investigation. Commission on Elections Chair Benjamin Abalos Sr. has been accused of brokering the deal between the DOTC and ZTE and of receiving sexual favors and commissions in return. Abalos has also been accused of offering a bribe to Romulo Neri, former NEDA secretary general, so he would endorse the ZTE proposal
Yesterday Monday,Commissions on Election Chairman Benjamen Aballos quit his job in a press conference in their house. The family of Abalos asked him to resign after his name was involved in bribery while brokering the allegedly overpriced $329-M deal of National Broadband Network (NBN) with China’s ZTE Corp. I’m wondering if Abalos resignation means he is guilty once he said that resigning from a position on the middle of impeachment or investigation is guilty. Or this is what the Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s decision since her husband First Gentleman Mike Arroyo is also involves in this scandal as what Joey De Venicia said. Whoaahhh.. Do you think there is a person involved that is in a postion higher than Abalos? DO you think it’s the time now for transparency? Huhuhuh… poor Filipino people we are who endure of paying on our country’s debts but we don’t know what is happening.
