MANILA, Philippines- Itinalaga sina Senador JV Ejercito at Mark Villar bilang deputy majority leader sa Senado sa 19th Congress sa ginanap na plenary session nitong Martes kabilang ang pagtatalaga ng chairmanship ng iba’t ibang komite.

Nangyari ito matapos maihalal ang dalawa bilang vice chairpersons ng Committee on Rules sa ginanap na plenary session.

Naihalal din bilang chairman ng sumusunod na komite sina:

  • Banks, Financial Institutions and Currencies: Villar

  • Civil Service, Gov’t Reorganization & Professional Regulation: Bong Revilla

  • Cooperatives: Imee Marcos

  • Economic Affairs: Grace Poe

  • Electoral Reforms & People’s Participation: Imee Marcos

  • Environment & Natural Resources, Climate Change: Cynthia Villar

  • Public Information & Mass Media: Robin Padilla

  • Sports: Bong Go

  • Tourism: Nancy Binay

  • Urban Planning, Housing & Resettlement: JV Ejercito

  • Youth: Sonny Angara

Wala pang naitatalagang chairman ng mga sumusunod na komite: Basic Education, Arts and Culture; Cultural Communities; Ethics and Privileges; Justice and Human Rights; Labor, Employment and Human Resource Development; and Science and Technology.

Sinabi ni Senate majority leader Joel Villanueva na magsasagawa ng pagdinig ang Committee on Rules bago maghalal ng chairpersons dahil may panawagan na biyakin ang Basic Education, and Arts and Culture, at Committee on Labor, Employment and Human Resource Development bilang apat na hiwalay na lupon.

Kasalukuyang isinasapinal naman ang kinatawan ng Senado sa makapangyarihang Commission on Appointments (CA) at Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET).

“The membership in these two constitutional bodies is the “perennial problem” of the leadership during the opening of every Congress as they need to consider the political affiliations of each senator,” ayon kay Villanueva.

“The CA and the SET [memberships are] still being talked about. Remember, kasi every two senators would have one seat in the CA [and] every four [senators] would have a seat in the SET,” dagdag niya.

“Ito ‘yung perennial problem… perennial challenge ng leadership ng Senado every opening of Congress,” aniya.

Aniya, nakatakdang maisapinal ang membership nito sa mga susunod na araw.

“‘Yun yung inaayos na numero ngayon may mga ilang personalities na sure na nakakuha, but there are about two or three slots na lang probably that were talking about in the CA and in the SET.” Ernie Reyes
