Manila, Philippines – Naglatag na ng agenda si House Majority Leader at Leyte 1st Rep. Martin G. Romualdez, na napipisil ng mga kapwa mambabatas na susunod na Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Ani Romualdez masusing susuportahan at itutulak ng Kamara ang magiging prayoridad ng administrasyon ni presumptive President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. gaya ng pagbangon mula sa pagkalugmok dulot ng coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic at ang pagpapanatili ng economic recovery.

“As part of the majority coalition, we shall be addressing the unity agenda of the administration. So we will be passing legislation amid the pandemic, and we hope that we are already in the endemic state,” sinabi ni Romualdez.

Ngayong tapos na ang eleksyon ay hinikayat ng mambabatas ang mga kasamahang kongresista na magtrabaho at kumilos nang may pagkakaisa.

“We hope to not only heal the nation but also heal the economy. These are the top priority programs of the majority in the incoming administration. And the key element here, of course, is unity. And we are here all together as we wind up in the 18th Congress. It brings me a lot of hope that this gonna be a shift – the unity we definitely need to move our country forward in the midst of these very big challenges.”

Dagdag pa ni Romualdez na nais niyang mapabilang sa samahan na umuusad upang itaguyod ang legislative agenda ng gobyerno.

“The elections are over, let us bond together as one. We are one country, we are fighting this pandemic, we are trying to arrest the flagging economy. Let us rally under one flag, we are all Filipinos, we are one Congress. I want to be a part of the team that keeps us united together in moving the legislative agenda of this country forward,” ani Romualdez.

Bilang susunod na lider ng Kamara de Representantes ay nangako ito ng pagbibigay-atensyon sa pangangailangan ng mga kongresista maging ang party-list groups na nangangailangan.

“The party-list business is a top priority because I get to sleep beside one,” dagdag pa ni Romualdez dahil ang misis a si Rep. Yedda ay siyang kinatawan ng Tingog party-list na nakakuha ng dalawang pwesto.

“You have proven yourselves to be a most effective, hardest-working batch of legislators, that’s why I’m very proud to be here. Rest assured that you will be receiving that similar respect, if not more, in the incoming 19th Congress.”

Kasama si incoming Ilocos Norte Rep. Sandro Marcos sa mga nauna ng bumti kay Romualdez bilang susunod na speaker ng 19th Congress.

“I just came personally to congratulate our incoming Speaker of the House Martin Romualdez, and of course to solidify the alliance that we are forming in the 19th Congress not just with district congressmen but with party-list congressmen as well,” ayon kay Sandro, anak ni presumptive President Bongbong Marcos.

Naunang sinabi ni Albay Rep. Joey Salceda na makukuha ni Romualdez ang speakership “not because he is a cousin of the incoming President but because of his legislative prowess, his mastery of the legislative grind or mill.” Meliza Maluntag
