It is said that the session of the camp of Marinduque Rep. Was very blasphemous not only against the House rules but also against the Constitution. Lord Allan Velasco to replace the leadership of the House.
According to Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, Velasco’s allies also violated the safety protocols laid down by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) due to their gathering despite the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cayetano insisted that the congressmen could not just hold a session based on their own wishes, especially now that their session is still suspended and will return to the plenary this Tuesday in accordance with the special session convened by President Rodrigo Duterte.
This is an example of the session they held in Batangas in January following the eruption of Taal Volcano where another resolution had to be submitted and approved.

Cayetano warned Velasco not to put the House in the mud and not to derail the pleary deliberations in the 2021 proposed P4.5-trillion national budget.
He said that he has been hit by a lot of big people so he is not afraid to act when the proposed budget for next year is in jeopardy.
“Remember, Congress is not a noontime show. Congress is not here for entertainment. Congress is not a circus. This is the House of the People, ”Cayetano said.
Cayetano, on the other hand, promised a “honorable and orderly” session this Tuesday despite Monday’s incident.
But it is appealing for understanding and cooperation from fellow congressmen so that their target of approving the fund proposal as soon as possible is in line with President Duterte’s appeal.
