President Arroyo has fired her election lawyer Romulo Macalintal, the Palace said on Wednesday.

Macalintal has taken a position in favor of postponing the elections, which comes in conflict with the President’s line, the Palace said. Mrs. Arroyo has not authorized anyone to suggest any change in the election date, it said. The Palace said it respects the independence of the Commission on Elections and defers to its judgment on all matters regarding the conduct of election.
