Both Representatives Alan Peter Cayetano and Lord Allan Velasco have been called to Malacañang for a meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte today, Malacañang said Tuesday.
Last month, Duterte also met with Cayetano and Velasco amid the lingering issues concerning the speakership.
In a statement, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said both congressmen are scheduled to meet with Duterte at 12:30 p.m. to discuss the proposed 2021 national budget.
“This is to confirm that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has called Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano and Rep. Lord Allan Velasco for a meeting at 12:30 p.m. in Malago today regarding the passage of the 2021 budget,” Roque also said.
Last Friday, Duterte called for a special session of Congress from October 13 to 16 to resume the deliberations on the proposed P4.5-trillion national budget for next year.
On October 6, Cayetano moved for the approval on second reading of the budget measure and suspended session until November 16.
