Malacañang reiterated that President Rodrigo Duterte will no longer meddle in the House speakership row between House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano and Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco.

In a statement aired on state-run PTV-4 Sunday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Duterte urged lawmakers to set aside politics and swiftly pass the proposed 2021 budget.

“Hindi po naghihimasok, hindi nakikialam ang Presidente sa nangyayaring girian para sa pwesto ng speaker diyan sa mababang kapulungan,” according to Roque.

“Ang panawagan niya sa ating mga kongresista: Isantabi muna ang politika para maipasa natin ang proposed 2021 budget na binuo ng administrasyon para labanan ang Covid-19,” he added.

Last Friday, Duterte issued Proclamation 1027, called Congress to a “special session” from October 13 to 16 to resume plenary deliberations on the proposed P4.5-trillion national budget. He also certified the budget measure as urgent.
