Vice Gov Magpale on Arroyo as Speaker: Why the urgency?

0 283

Cebu Vice Governor Agnes Magpale said she was confused by the sudden change of leadership at the House of Representatives last July 23.

Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was elected as new Speaker to replace Davao del Norte 1st District Representative Pantaleon Alvarez.

“I could not understand. Why the urgency?,” Magpale said.

Magpale also said it remains to be seen how Arroyo’s election as Speaker will affect Cebu politics.

Arroyo is a close friend of Cebu 3rd District Representative Gwen Garcia.

Garcia is rumored to be running for governor in 2019.

But Magpale said it is still Cebuanos who will have decide on who will lead the province next year.
