Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) is endorsing the bid of Congressman Isidro Ungab for Speaker.
Ungab is a four term congressman and the only lawmaker to hold the chairmanships of both Ways and Means and Appropriations Committees.
In a statement, HNP with its three incumbent Congressmen from Davao Region, has been patiently observing the developments in the House of Representatives. HNP states that it understands if President Rodrigo Duterte, because of delicadeza, will not accept the intent of our brother from Hugpong sa Tawong Lungsod, Congressman Paolo Duterte, to resolve the conflict among candidates.
HNP also suggest that Cong. Alan Peter Cayetano take the Majority Leader position, Cong. Lord Alan Velasco to take the Appropriations Committee, and Cong. Martin Romualdez to head the Accounts Committee.
HNP is hopeful that everyone can see the light in this option and move forward with urgency in serving the country. (MMP/LON)
