Current and former members of the New Progressive Party earlier called on Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello to step down and avoid getting impeached over a chat message scandal that sparked protests across the United States island territory. He had already announced his intention to seek a second term.
The leaked messages between Rosselló and some officials in his administration mentioned manipulation of public opinion polls, inappropriate comments about political rivals, and jokes about the death toll that resulted from Hurricane Maria.
"I have listened, and I am listening to you today", Rossello said in a video posted on Facebook. "Whoever wasn't sure about going to the march tomorrow has now made up their mind to go".
"Apologizing is not enough", Rossello said in a statement on Facebook.
Puerto Rico's nonvoting representative to the U.S. Congress, as well as Democratic presidential candidates and some Republican lawmakers, have demanded he step down over the leaked messages.
Puerto Rico House Speaker Carlos Mendez, also of the PNP, appointed an independent panel on Friday to investigate whether the chats warranted impeachment. Rossello's term is scheduled to end in January 2021.
