PROGRESS

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez explains the progress of the passage of the Freedom of Information bill at the Lower House.

the bill is a campaign promise of the president.

Speaking to ANC Headstart, Alvarez said,  Nasa committee ngayon yun, hindi ba? Ngayon, hindi ko alam yung status noon, doon sa committee level, sa akin naman wala akong problema, wala naman akong tinatago. Ngayon, ayoko namang brasuhin iyan at pilitin yung mga kasamahan ko, so hinahayaan ko iyan.”

jokingly asked if congressmen have something to hide , Alvarez replied, “May proseso, hindi ko alam, hindi natin alam ma’am, for so many reasons kung bakit hanggang ngayon nasa committee level pa yun.”
