Naniningil na! Mike Enriquez seeks performance checklist for winning senators
GMA-7 broadcast journalist Mike Enriquez has asked newly elected senators to present their plans and programs for the nation so the public can regularly monitor their performance.
Enriquez became the top trending topic on Twitter Tuesday after video clips of his frank and no-nonsense commentary about the results of the midterm elections went viral online.
“Professor Richard, wala pa rin sa kalaunan, wala pa ring tunay at malaliman na pagbabago at reporma tayong maaasahan,” Enriquez said during an interview with analyst Richard Heydarian about the senatorial poll results.
In another video clip with fellow broadcasters Mel Tiangco and Jessica Soho, Enriquez said: “Lahat nung mga nanalo, oo, na ma-interview. Gusto ko silang singilin, anong maaasahan namin sa inyo ngayon?”
“Para magkaalaman. Ngayon pa lang, magkaalaman na para sa habang umuusad ang kanilang termino, na-tse-tsek natin ‘yung ginagawa nila versus ‘yung ipinangako nila. Ganoon lang ka-simple ‘yon,” he added.
When Tiangco told him to let the candidates savor their victory first, Enriquez quipped that the people who are homeless, hungry and sick want genuine service now.
“Kung kalahati lang sa mga ipinapangako ng mga kandidato ay magkatotoo, kalahati lang, hindi siyento porsyento, aba’y napakagandang lugar nitong Pilipinas,” he said.
Many netizens have lauded Enriquez for throwing the “truth bombs” on television when he demanded action from the newly elected senators.

Mike Enriquez spoke his heart out during the coverage of the election. He knows what’s up. He certainly knows that some of these incoming senators made empty promises just to have a seat in the senate. On the other hand, Mel Tiangco just tried calm down Sir Mike because +— yippie (@aegidreamies) May 14, 2019
