Let's get back to work, Bunye urges lawmakers

Manila (5 February) -- Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesperson Ignacio R. Bunye called on all legislators today to set aside last night's nominal voting process at the House of Representatives and instead "get back to work as soon as possible."

Bunye made the call when he was interviewed over dzMM radio this morning, hours after an overwhelming majority of the more than 200 congressmen elected Davao Congressman Prospero Nograles as House speaker vice Speaker Jose de Venecia Jr.

The Palace official said lawmakers owed it to their constituents to get back to work and enact laws for their benefit.

"We owe it to our people that the legislators should get back to work as soon as possible," Bunye said.

He added that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo had taken steps to avert the long-winded debate over the speakership from breaking out into a fullblown inter-coalition fighting.

The President even convened a caucus of the leaders of the administration coalition leaders in a last-ditch bid to thresh out the issue and arrive at an amicable solution of the "problem."

"Kaya lang nangyari na iyong nangyari kaya siguro let's just try to get back to work. Let's try to attend to the problems that we are facing as soon as possible," Bunye said. (OPS) [top]
