Martin Romualdez welcomes Sid Ungab as new deputy speaker
Speaker Lord Allan Velasco’s Batasan empire is ever growing.
House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez is happy to remain in his post and see their new leader’s platoon of deputies expand.
From the usual seven to eight Deputy Speakers, Velasco has made his list of backups above 30, with the latest addition being Davao City Rep. Isidro Ungab.
“Congratulations to the new Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Davao Rep. Isidro Ungab! We wish you great success with your new responsibilities. Para sa bayan!,” Romualdez said after the oath-taking ceremony.
