STALLING THE BUDGET UNFAVORABLE FOR FILIPINOS

STALLING THE BUDGET UNFAVORABLE FOR FILIPINOS
 

11 March 2019 04:48:10 PM

Senior Deputy Minority Leader Anthony Bravo (Party-list, COOP NATCCO) held a press conference on Monday to respond to the remarks of Senator Panfilo Lacson against the House of Representatives on the 2019 General Appropriations Bill (GAB). Bravo appealed to the Senate against stalling the proposed budget as it will be the Filipinos who will suffer from it, asking the Senators to let President Duterte exercise his discretion whether to use his veto power or not. He further stated that Lacson may be holding the GAB “hostage” for personal vendetta against former President and now Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and to impede her successful leadership. | Molie Gonzales/ GIlbert Engay
