Despite the risks posed by COVID-19, President Rodrigo Duterte is willing to go to the Senate or House of Representatives as a resource person for bills against red tape and corruption.

Duterte expressed his willingness to face lawmakers in the meeting he had Wednesday (September 16) in Malacañang with Senate President Vicente Sotto III, House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano and House Majority Leader Ferdinand Martin Romualdez.

Senator Bong Go, who was also present at the meeting, said Duterte was willing to appear at the Senate or House as a resource person if needed.

Go said it was Duterte who called for the meeting, which lasted for around 45 minutes. He said measures to shorten government processes were discussed, with the aim of cutting red tape and corruption.

Duterte’s former aide said the President made it clear to Sotto, Cayetano and Romualdez that he wants to eliminate corruption and red tape in his remaining one year and nine months in office.

Go said Duterte asked to be summoned to Congress during the meeting, but Sotto said the President may be invited instead.
