Martin Romualdez loves DepEd Sec. Briones’ endurance


The aging secretary sat through a nine-hour hearing and emerged victorious.

Majority Leader and Leyte Rep. Ferdinand Martin Romualdez made it a practice to invite Cabinet Secretaries to his office for a chat as they present their budget needs before the House of Representatives.

Most remarkable of them so far is Education Sec. Liling Briones, who had to face questioning for an entire day.

Romualdez treated her with a warm smile and held her hand by way of congratulations.
