PRIORITIES

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez reveals that the shift to federal form of government is one of the priorities discussed during Tuesday’s Legislative Eexecutive Development Advisory Council meeting.

Alvarez told reporters that aside from going over the accomplishments of the House, the LEDAC also arrived at a consensus on its priorities, which include federalism.”ang naalala ko lang kasi medyo marami kasi naalala ko lang na isa yung federalism na kailangan maumpisahan na talaga natin. mag pupulong kami ng liderato ng senado kung  kailan kami pwedeng magconvene into a constituent assembly”

Alvarez says the constituent assembly maybe convoked next year but there will be committee hearings soon.

Alvarez says leaders of the Senate and House will meet next week to decide on the postponement of the Barangay and Sangguniang kabataan elections to next year.

Original rescheduled to this October, Congress is again looking to postpone the poll as President Duterte seeks more time to purge the ranks of barangay officials of drug personalities. “well yung barangay elections basta kami dito sa House  ay napagkasunduan na namin na itoy pagpaliban by may next year at merong holdover yung mga brgy officials ngayon di ko pa alam sa senado kung ano yung version nila isa ito sa mga pinakiusap din ng ating pangulo na ipagpaliban muna dahil hindi pa masyadong nalinis yung mga ibat ibang barangay kung saan yung kanilang barangay officials ay involved sa illegal drugs”

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez says he has been informed that 2 congressmen maybe on a new “narcolist” of the administration. “well may ibibigay sa akin na bagong listahan today yun ang sabi ah pero wala pa sa akin ngayon titignan ko kung meron pa ring congressman na kasali i really  dont know i havent seen the list pero pagka binigay sa akin today ay macoconfirm ko yan sa inyo.”

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has no objections to e House probe on the killing of Kian delos Santos.”hindi ko alam kasi tignan natin sa committee on rules kasi sila nagrerefer niya sa respective committees di ko pa alam yan wala namang prublema sa akin yan kung merong magfile na gusto imbestigahan di imbestigahan natin  although alam naman nating lahat na yan in iniimbetsigahan ng senado iniimbetsigahan ng DOJ iniimbestigahan ng NBI  iniimbetsigahan ng PNP so ang dami nang ahensiya ng gubyerno ang nagiimbestiga diyan kung gusto nga ting mga congressman na mag imbetsiga pa rin di naman ako tutol”

the House has been criticized by congressmen for being silent or slow on the various proposals for a House probe on the delos Santos death supposedly at the hands of the police under the administration’s war against drugs.
