Bishops: Call for Arroyo ouster likely if EO 464 stays

At least three members said Sunday that the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) might eventually seek President Arroyo's resignation if MalacaƱang continues to defy the CBCP's call for the revocation of Executive Order 464.Bishops Oscar Cruz of Dagupan and Deogracias IƱiguez of Caloocan said that the Palace seems to be dragging its feet in heeding the call to abolish EO 464.The controversial directive orders members of the Cabinet and other officers of the government's executive branch to first ask for permission from the Palace before appearing in any congressional hearing.
