Balutan should have been fired after lavish PCSO Christmas party – Gatchalian
Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has rallied behind President Duterte’s dismissal of Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office general manager Alexander Balutan although he believed it should have been done sooner.
Gatchalian was opposed to Balutan’s use of government funds to host a “grand” Christmas party for the agency’s employees in 2017.
“This guy should have been removed sooner – unconscionably spending 6m pesos on a grand Christmas party. The money was meant to help indigents who are lining up PCSO’s door steps,” he tweeted.
