Gary warns Bebot: Your day will come, Speaker

Mar 17, 2017 @ 18:59

Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano believes that House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez will get his comeuppance one day especially if he continues disrespecting his colleagues.

Alejano, in an interview on Unang Hirit Friday (March 17), highlighted the “negativity” that Alvarez has supposedly created in the 17th Congress, particularly with his strong-arming tactics in passing the controversial death penalty restoration bill.

“Kaya maganda po iyan naramdaman natin ang pagkakaiba ng lumang kongreso kesa sa ngayon sa klase ng liderato sa kongreso. Ito ang nag-crecreate ng sama ng loob sa mga kasamahan po natin na napupwersa,” he said, alluding to the death penalty bill.

Earlier, Alvarez threatened to replace fellow House leaders who choose not to support the approval of the measure. He kept his word.

“Iyong pagbibigay ng paggalang sa Kongreso, napipilitan silang bumoto, natatakot po sila sa liderato.

“Darating ang time na alam na natin ang koalisyon sa Kongreso ay hindi naman base sa loyalty. Iyan ay coalition for convenience. Kung iniinsulto mo ang miyembro ng Kongreso darating ang araw, may breaking point din iyan,” Alejano said.

The party-list solon was the one who filed an impeachment complaint against Alvarez’s President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday (March 16).

The sharp-tongued Speaker described the move as “pure and simple stupidity,” which Alejano took exception to.
