Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (born April 5, 1947), also known as GMA, is the current and 14th president[?] of the Republic of the Philippines. She is the second female president of the country after Corazon C. Aquino[?] and is the daughter of a former president, Diosdado Macapagal[?].

She came to office through popular revolt (EDSA II[?]) on January 20, 2001, after the impeachment trial of her predecessor, Pres. Joseph Ejercito Estrada[?], who was charged with graft and plunder, was suspended. The Supreme Court[?] unanimously declared her assumption into office as legal and constitutional after declaring the position of the President vacant when Estrada left Malacaņang Palace[?].
