House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano on Friday said he welcomed the decision of President Rodrigo Duterte to call Congress to a special session in order to expedite the passage of the 2021 budget amid a leadership crisis.

“As we commit our nation and the People’s 2021 Budget to THE ALMIGHTY, we welcome President Duterte’s call for a Special Session of Congress on October 13 to 16,” he said.

Duterte also declared the passage of the budget bill as urgent, allowing Congress to bypass the three-day notice rule.

Cayetano said the President’s move showed his confidence that the House would be able to pass the budget “free of politicking.”

“We trust his wisdom on how to address issues concerning the budget, and thank him for his continued confidence by allowing Congress to pass the General Appropriations Bill free from the specter of politicking and intrigues that we had originally sought to avoid,” the Taguig lawmaker said.

“In the meantime, Congress shall continue to work and prepare for the swift passage of this measure, and to ensure that it will be responsive and relevant to the government’s overall recovery efforts for 2021,” Cayetano said.
