Mar Roxas behind Purisima ouster moves?

Some people are saying that ouster moves against PNP Director General Alan Purisima are being implemented by several people connected with DILG secretary Mar Roxas. Is this true?

Many of us thought that Purisima is a lapdog of Roxas. According to sources, Purisima is a direct hire of President Benigno Aquino III and does not belong to the Hyatt 10 group of Roxas.

Fact is, Purisima reports directly to the President, and seldom seen in the company of Roxas.

Reports say, Roxas wants another PNP official to replace Purisima. Why?

Purisima will retire from the service on November 2015, a few months before the 2016 Presidential elections. Sources say, Roxas and some Liberal Party stalwarts want a more subservient PNP head by that time.

Sources also say that Purisima knows a lot about Roxas and by resigning, the risk of "leaks" is high. That explains why the Palace is defending Purisima up to the very end.
