Negros Oriental Rep. Arnie Teves on Monday said Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco should be able to garner “more than 160” votes if pitted against Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano in an election on October 14.

In a Zoom press briefing, he noted that the PDP-Laban currently has 58 members, while the party-list bloc has 54, and the Nationalist People’s Coalition has more than 30. The Visayan bloc would also add votes for Velasco.

“More or less thereabouts, I think lampas pa nga,” he said when asked to confirm Oriental Mindoro Rep. Doy Leachon’s claim that Velasco now has 160 votes.

Teves noted that Cayetano initially did not have numbers in the House until he entered the term-sharing deal with Velasco.

“Nung una pa lang wala naman silang numero, sa alam ko. Right at the start, as far as I know, Martin [Romualdez] had the most numbers. Nung una pa lang, but because of the agreement, Martin abided by the agreement and settled with the majority,” he said.

Teves warned the House leadership not to abuse their power on October 14 and to allow an election of a new Speaker.

If not, he said: “Magkakagulo ang Pilipinas. I don’t think the President will allow that.”
