No bad blood: Martin Romualdez happy to work with new Speaker Velasco


Martin Romualdez jumped right into heavy legislative work with his new partner in leading the show in Batasan.

The Leyte congressman managed to retain his post as House Majority Leader, keeping the term-sharing deal in Malacañang in 2019 true and fulfilled. He easily got along with new Speaker Lord Allan Velasco, and he could not be any prouder of it.

“House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco and I are working hand-in-hand para mas lalong matugunan ang mga pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan,” the politiko vowed.

“We’ve already started with the swift passage of the proposed 2021 National Budget, but we still have a lot of priority measures to work on. Kapit lang tayo! Asahan niyo, your Congress is working doubly hard to help our country recover from the pandemic.”
