It’s more fun in PDP-Laban! Lucy Gomez named chair of tourism committee after leaving LP


Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres Gomez’s decision to leave the Liberal Party wasn’t for naught as she’s been rewarded with a committee chairmanship.

Gomez, a newly minted member of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), has been named the chairperson of the House tourism committee by Majority Floor Leader Rodolfo Fariñas.

In the 16th Congress, Gomez, then an LP stalwart, was Assistant Majority Leader and Vice Chairperson of the Committee on Public Order and Safety.

She jumped ship to PDP-Laban after winning her reelection bid in the 2016 elections.
