CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM HOUSE SPEAKER LORD ALLAN VELASCO
24 December 2020 06:09:42 AM


2020 is truly an unprecedented year. There was a time when all seemed hopeless, and we were left wondering if we will all be able to return to our daily routines. There are those who lost their jobs, while others lost their loved ones. I sincerely sympathize with you in these trying times.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it is getting brighter. We in Congress are doing everything we can to help us all meet that light. As your House Speaker, I assure our countrymen that we will do all we can to get us all back to our feet and experience the joy we all once had before this pandemic.

We are working tirelessly to pass laws that would help the nation get through this period of difficulty, starting with the 2021 national budget and all other priority legislation of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte that are designed to boost the economy and the country’s response to the pandemic.

Mga kababayan, kasama niyo po kami sa Kongreso sa pagsalubong ng Kapaskuhan hawak ang bagong pag-asa at pangarap. Ito rin ay panahon ng pasasalamat at paggunita sa mga biyaya at buhay sa gitna ng pandemya.

I wish all of you a truly happy, blessed Christmas!
