Senator Panfilo Lacson is optimistic that President Duterte would not allow the proposed 2019 national budget to be laced with alleged pork barrel funds inserted by some lawmakers.

Lacson made the remarks after the Palace announced Duterte’s readiness to veto any budget allocation that violates the Supreme Court decision nullifying the pork barrel system.
