Punong abala? Albay Rep. Joey Salceda helps fix leadership situation in the House
Albay Rep. Joey Salceda may not be in the running for Speaker, but he is playing a crucial row in making sure the selection of the House of Representatives leader runs smoothly.
President Duterte has endorsed Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano for the post, but he still has to convince his colleagues to actually vote for him.
In a Facebook post, Salceda said Cayetano had been meeting various groups, blocs, and parties in the House to secure their backing.
Salceda was tasked to attend all of them.
He may be behind the scenes, but it looks like he’s playing a crucial role.
We will see the results of his efforts when the session opens on July 22!
“Since the endorsement, Speaker APC has been meeting groups, blocs and parties in informal meetings to mobilize the support of the Congressmen. I was tasked to attend most (in fact) all of them,” Salceda posted.
