House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano is sticking to his game plan despite President Rodrigo Duterte’s stern warning to Congress to pass the proposed 2021 national budget on time.

In a Facebook post Thursday (October 8), Cayetano downplayed Duterte’s speech as a “stern warning to all parties to stop all the politicking.”

He, however, stressed there will be no changes to the House’s timeline in approving the 2021 national budget.

“As a matter of detail, we will submit the printed budget to the Senate on November 5, allowing them to proceed with their hearings, and preparing the way for the formal transmittal on November 16, immediately after Congress votes and approves on third reading the 2021 General Appropriations Bill,” Cayetano said.

The Speaker and his allies had the session suspended until November 16, leaving the passage on final reading of the GAB hanging.

Duterte did not name Cayetano or his rival for the speakership, Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco, in his speech, but stressed that the House should resolve the leadership row at the soonest possible time.

“Either you resolve the issue sa impasse ninyo diyan and pass the budget legally and constitutionally. ‘Pag hindi ninyo ginawa, ako ang gagawa para sa inyo,” the President said.
