‘Circus’ at ‘waste of time’ lang ang imbestigasyon ng Senado sa People’s Initiative—mga mambabatas

Inilarawan ng dalawang mambabatas na "circus" at "waste of time" lamang ang isinasagawang imbestigasyon ng Senado sa People’s Initiative.

Inilarawan ng dalawang mambabatas na “circus” at “waste of time” lamang ang isinasagawang imbestigasyon ng Senado sa People’s Initiative.

“Yes, it’s a circus,” sabi ni Quezon Rep. David ‘Jay-jay’ Suarez sa isang press briefing nitong Martes, Enero 30. “I mean, it’s [moot and] academic. Nag-rule na yung Comelec (Commission on Elections) kahapon en banc, suspended na muna ‘yung signatures, So, technically, yung [People’s Initiative] wala na yun.”

“So I mean, why have a hearing?…let’s move forward with the Senate bill, let’s move forward with the House resolution, just so that we can push the discussion faster,” Suarez said, referring to the Senate’s very own Resolution of Both Houses (RBH) No.6.

Pareho ang sentimiyento ni Bataan 1st district Rep. Geraldine Roman.

“It’s hard to read the good senator’s [Imee Marcos] intentions, but my personal opinion is that it is a waste of time. It’s moot and academic because the committee has already stated its position for the People’s Initiative to stop,” aniya.

Imbes na pagtuunan ng pansin ang naturang imbestigasyon, mas mabuti pa raw na asikasuhin ng Senado ang isinulong nitong RBH No. 6.

“So, I think we would rather, well, it would be better if the Senate focuses its time and attention on RBH No. 6, if they’re really intent and sincere to push for constitutional defense,” sabi pa niya.
