Nagsalita ang ‘mababang kapulungan’: Bebot disses Senate as ‘mabagal na kapulungan’
Both are top political allies of President Rodrigo Duterte but this did not stop Speaker Bebot Alvarez from speaking his mind on what he thinks of the work ethic of Senate President Koko Pimentel and the rest of the senators.
Alvarez was asked if Congress could carry out the impeachment of Commission on Elections Chair Andy Bautista considering that Congress has gone into vacation mode and won’t be back until November 13.
Alvarez said as far as he was concerned, his fellow House members have been diligent in doing their lawmaking duties and have no problem adding on impeachment to their load.
“Itanong mo yang tanong na yan sa mabagal na kapulungan, ‘wag sa amin,” said Alvarez in an interview with DZMM.
“Kami kasi yung masaganang kapulungan dahil sa dami ng bills na aming pinapasa rito. Sa dami ng trabahona ginagawa rito. Kami yung masaganang kapulungan. Dalawa lang naman yan,” he added.
Alvarez said the House would formalize its impeachment of Bautista after the House voted in plenary Wednesday to reject the Justice Committee’s decision to junk the complaint against Bautista.
Hours before the shock impeachment move of the House,Bautista announced he was resigning by the end of this year.
Alvarez said the House would move forward with the impeachment trial of Bautista unless he resigned immediately.
