Bilog ang mundo! Cam Sur Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. can’t believe he got to question political bigwigs


The Philippine political scene is ever changing, and you don’t always know on which side you’ll end up.

Camarines Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. marveled at the fact that he was in a position to interpellate former President Benigno Aquino III and Public Attorney’s Office chief Persida Acosta during the recent House hearing on the purchase of Dengvaxia.

As President, Aquino was of course powerful and untouchable. But now that he’s a private citizen, he has to answer lawmakers’ questions just like any other resource person.

Thankfully, there are enough lawmakers who ask decent questions and don’t just use hearings to grandstand.

“GULONG NG PALAD: It never crossed my mind that one day I would be interpellating former President BENIGNO S. AQUINO lll–and PAO Chief Atty. PERSIDA ACOSTA. Check out the full footage below (courtesy of CNN Philippines),” Bordado posted on Facebook.
