DAGUPAN CITY – The appointment of new sets of barangay chairmen and council members by President Rodrigo Duterte will be lawful because it will be backed up by a law crafted by Congress, according to a solon.
DRUGS BOOKS. Pangasinan 2nd District’s Congressman Leopoldo N. Bataoil and former Regional Trial Court’s Judge Victor Llamas (not in photo) promote ove a radio station in Dagupan City the books “Drugs, Law, DU30, and You” and “How to Catch a Liar” that Llamas authored as his contributions to the present administration’s war against illegal drugs.
This was the reaction of Congressman Leopoldo Bataoil when asked if the appointment by the President of the barangay officials would violate the right of suffrage of the Filipinos.
He said the House will resume session on May 2 and will discuss ways on how to amend the law that will empower the President to postpone the election of village chiefs and council members.
“Yes, in case we argue (for the amendment) it will go through the process (of legislation),”he said.
When I was asked to host a radio commentary program, I relished it because I was a radio bug on selected Filipino political broadcasters especially during the time of the perceptive Louie Beltran, the humorous Rod Navarro and everything hilarious and vulgar about what U.S. No. 1 shock jock Howard Stern dishes on Sirius Radio and YouTube.
Man, I love to talk especially the way former five-time House Speaker Joe de Venecia and Civil Rights Activist Al Sharpton rabble roused. Their ding-dong gift of gab I imitated and polished on air with my belief that they could help proselytize by playing with the emotions of the listeners here and abroad, thanks to free Facebook Live Feed video where listeners overseas could listen to my antics.
