Para walang problema! Duterte to Cayetano: Heed term-sharing deal with Velasco
By Prince Golez
House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano should respect his 15-21 term-sharing agreement with Rep. Lord Allan Velasco, or there will be a problem, President Rodrigo Duterte said.
“I was there when we agreed, three of us. If he does not want to honor it, that is his problem. It’s going to be a problem,” Duterte said in an interview with GMA News.
“We will solve the problem when we are there. Wala pa naman eh, it remains to be hypothetical,” he added.
Earlier, some lawmakers floated the idea of Cayetano serving a full term, citing his high approval and trust ratings in the recent survey.
The solon from Taguig has declared he is open to being Speaker until end of 18th Congress.
