Editorial: Promised lands

THE drama that preceded the State of the Nation Address (SONA) last Monday pulled the spotlight away from its substance. It was President Rodrigo Duterte’s most direct SONA, so far, with clearly spelled-out priorities for Congress to work on. But the maneuver that landed Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo the House Speaker’s position proved too big a distraction. Among the laws that President Duterte asked for, two were requests he had also made in the 2017 SONA: the creation of a Department of Disaster Management and the passage of the NationalRead More


House will be ‘friendlier’ to Cebu

AT LEAST four of 10 district lawmakers from Cebu voted for Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to become Speaker of the House last Monday. One signed the resolution that supported her bid for the speakership, but it wasn’t clear if he voted. Another would have voted for her but had left immediately after President Rodrigo Duterte’s State of the Nation Address (SONA). In Cebu City, Mayor Tomas Osmeña said he expects that a House led by Arroyo will be “more friendly and supportive.” “She’s very close to the Cebuanos. Remember thatRead More


Nalzaro: Suspension in the offing?

A SOURCE said the “former political has-been” will be suspended anytime soon. In fact, according to the source, the suspension order has already been signed by the President and it will be officially served soon. But my source did not reveal the ground for the suspension. Several administrative cases have been filed by his political opponents against him before the Office of the President. Well, I consider these as rumors. But this is not far from reality. The camp of Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino is moving heavenRead More


Wenceslao: PDP vs. Hugpong

WHEN presidential daughter Sara Duterte-Carpio formally launched last February what was then described as a regional party mainly based in the Davao region, called the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), then Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimental III, who also heads the administration Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), did not discount the possibility of PDP-Laban bets clashing with HNP candidates in that region in 2019. The Davao area was the turf of PDP-Laban secretary-general and former House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez until the younger Duterte made her move. When the party wasRead More


Carvajal: On the button

A SMILE began growing in my face the moment PRRD (President Rodrigo Roa Duterte) finally, after more than an hour’s delay, started his SONA. It kept growing until, when he finished, I imagined it (since I’m no selfie bug) to have gone as wide as the Pacific. Not only did PRRD ride a proper train in delivering his SONA, he also made the right station-stops. His negative critics could only mutter “expletive-free.” I prefer the more positive burst of “presidential” and right “on the button.” Admittedly there have been andRead More


Espinoza: Can Arroyo carry out Duterte’s agenda?

MANY already expected the drama at the House of Representatives that caused the delay of President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s State of the Nation Address (Sona) and that kept the guests, including foreign diplomats, waiting for hours to unfold. Former speaker Pantaleon Alvarez could have known beforehand the coup against him because after the session was adjourned at noon, the sound system was turned off and the House mace was missing. This is how entertaining politics in our midst is. Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, a former president whose term was swampedRead More
