MANILA, Philippines - Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile confirmed Wednesday there are indeed plans to oust him.

Enrile told reporters today: “I got the information from a reliable source but I will not discuss that.”

He noted, however, that this threat comes with the job.

“There are always people who are unhappy with the leadership of anybody.”

Until yesterday, the supposed plan was only a topic of gossip in the Senate.

Enrile said he is prepared to leave the position anytime.

"Dahil napakabigat ng obligasyon ng Senate President. Hindi ka makapasyal eh," he said.
