Palace hangs out 'Do Not Disturb' sign on vacationing PNoy

Malacañang on Thursday begged potential visitors to a vacationing President Benigno Aquino III to restrain themselves, saying that, as much as possible, the president is not to be disturbed this Christmas season. “Maaari ho ba kaming humingi ng isang pakiusap sa mga taong gustong dumalaw sa kanya na bigyan po siya ng espasyo at hayaan po siyang magkaroon ng pagkakataong magpahinga kung nasaan man po siya ngayon para lang po talagang masabi niyang nakapagpahinga po siya,” Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a briefing. Aquino left for an undisclosed location Tuesday evening to take at least three days off from his usual work schedule. However, reports said that several local officials wanted to speak with Aquino on certain issues. “We understand that marami hong gustong [dumalaw sa kanya pero] sinabi niya po na sadyang gusto niyang magpahinga base na rin po sa rekomendasyon ni Secretary Ona,” Lacierda added. Lacierda said that those who wanted to meet with Aquino on matters of business should instead speak with other government officials who can adequately respond to their needs., “Hayaan po natin itong ilang araw niyang pagpapahinga na sa kanya lang po itong oras na ito,” reiterated Lacierda. Lacierda also reassured the public that while Aquino remains in vacation, ranking Cabinet Secretaries regularly update him on issues pertaining to governance. Though his whereabouts have not been officially disclosed, Aquino's

motorcade was spotted in Baguio, headed for “The Mansion”, considered the official summer residence of the President of the Philippines. — DVM, GMA News
