Martin Romualdez proud to be one of 20 House members who showed up for the special session


It was his shining moment up at the Speaker’s podium for hours.

House Majority Leader and Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez deliver swiftly when President Rodrigo Duterte asked for a special session to talk funding for the government’s COVID-19 response.

“In a rush to mobilize government resources needed by the Executive Department to help contain the spread of COVID-19, ongoing po ang special session natin sa House of Representatives. Maraming salamat sa piling mga miyembro who are now present at the plenary, at sa iba pa naming colleagues na nasa teleconference para ma-practice ang social distancing, at para na rin sa kanilang votes and insights,” the politiko said, sharing photos of him in the esteemed Batasan podium.
