Romualdez teases House may hold more out-of-town sessions


House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez hinted that the House of Representatives might hold more out-of-town sessions following what he considered to be a highly successful conduct of Wednesday’s session in Batangas City.

“As you can see it was a very productive session today. In fact we have a very, very overwhelming attendance today, kaya baka Speaker, minsan padalas dalasin natin itong out of town session,” the Leyte congressman told reporters in jest.

“Mas maganda yata at mas mabilis magpasa ng initiatives at measures,” Romualdez said.

But he added: “Levity aside, it was a historic momentous occasion at the instance of the Speaker having heard a from an number of the representatives who wanted to do something and spring into action.”

Romualdez commended the “spontaneous outpouring” of support for the out-of-town plenary session.

“Sa totoo po matagal na talagang lahat gusto pumunta dito pero nadidinig talaga ni Speaker at nung leadership na baka kalat kalat o sabog sabog tayo, magkonsulta muna tayo,” he said.

The results spoke for itself, Romualdez said: “As he said, we today have won as one under the leadership of Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano.”
