Aquino henchmen in Congress file resolution vs SC and Arroyo that lacks any legal or constitutional legs #ArroyoWatch

What exactly does "extraordinary political will" mean? This is the basis of a move by "Palace allies" in Congress to back the administration of Philippine President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III in its on-going effort to bar former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from leaving the country to seek medical treatment. According to an ABS-CBN "report"...
Reps. Joseph Emilio Abaya, Lorenzo TaƱada III, Neptali Gonzales II, Irvin Alcala, Henedina Abad, Kaka Bag-ao, Walden Bello and Mel Senen Sarmiento introduced the resolution.

As of posting, some 80 have already signed the resolution, House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. confirmed. He said, "it's an expression of support for the executive...for what Secretary Leila de Lima did."

These "representatives" justified their move by highlighting that it is aligned with "Aquino’s battle-cry as the 'nation’s first and most determined fighter of corruption'."

Despite presenting a few other arguments around this "resolution", there seems to be no construct within their position that rests upon any semblance of a legal ground.
