Lacson believes Duterte’s political will vs pork in 2019 budget
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.
“Political will. As in past firm decisions he made on issues beneficial to Filipinos, I will not doubt his action on this one,” he tweeted.
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.
