Hating kapatid! Duterte to split speakership between Cayetano, Velasco
President Rodrigo Duterte is going Solomonic in appointing House speakership. The abogado recently decided that it will be a split decision between former Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano and Congressman Lord Allan Velasco.
Duterte: “I think it’s about time I talk. Your Speaker will be Alan Peter Cayetano. He will share the term with Lord Velasco and si Romualdez will be the majority floor leader.” | @DJEsguerraINQ https://t.co/RepTCtfA5h

The President finally spoke up the issue after weeks of push and pull. The abogado noted that the two men will be sharing the speakership term, effectively placing Congressman Martin Romualdez aside.
The abogado noted that Romualdez will be cast as Majority Floor Leader instead.
O diba, everybody happy!
