P-Noy's MC No. 1

Memorandum Circular No. 1 may have been issued in a hurry by the fact that the said MC has been amended thrice. It can be recalled that the first major blunder committed by then President Estrada was when he issued Executive Order No. 1. After signing E.O. 1 (which makes the term of office of all those coterminous with FVR's administration to end on June 30 1998 - without regard to the hold-overs and despite unwritten agreement for the hold-overs left behind - to properly turn over the projects and people down the line). Many appointees during the Estrada Administration were allegedly without extensive government experience. A year thereafter the cabinet was overhauled, little over two-year period, war broke out in Mindanao, allegations of corruption (jueteng) erupted, different factions from within the Presidency silently moves into different direction from within the circle of the Presidency, which resulted to political unrest. Barely a quarter after two years in Presidency - President Estrada was ousted in Office, escorted by his Chief of Staff out of MalacaƱang.
