Dedma sa SEA Games tongpats! Cayetano’s vow of zero corruption in pork-greedy Congress rings hollow
Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano is the chairman of the the Sea Games foundation which President Rodrigo Duterte wants investigated for corruption.
But this did not make him think twice about declaring that fighting corruption will be his main agenda if he wins as Speaker in the 18th Congress.
“Number one: No corruption. Talagang ‘yung sistema na bulok, hindi kami magpapalamon,” Cayetano declared in a Facebook livestream less than 24 hours before the opening of Congress on July 22.

President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) Foundation, chaired by Cayetano and controlled by his cronies, kicked out of the SEA Games because of corruption, including the alleged overpriced training uniforms with sports apparel company Asics.
In his rah-rah speech, Cayetano said: “You will see a House of Representatives now [na] hindi lang mabango ang congressman, kundi maramdaman ng tao na responsive sa inyong pangangailangan.”
Cayetano referred to his critics as those disappointed his anticipated election as Speaker on July 22.
“So do’n po sa nagkakalat na may diktahan, may takutan, may mga nangyayari. Siguro po, ‘yan na lang po ang ilang mga disgruntled for tomorrow,” said Cayetano.
