Palakasan! Oli Reyes theorizes power parallels between President, House Speaker
Abogado Oli Reyes is sensing a pattern when it comes to the power struggle in the Philippine government. The abogado noted that there is a direct relationship between staying in the good graces of the President and securing leadership.
When SP Salonga and Spkrs Villar & De Venezia fell out of favor with the incumbent Presidents, they lost the congressional leadership. In the US, GWB signaled that Maj Leader Lott should go after the Thurmond controversy

Reyes used former Speakers Villar and De Venecia as an example to what happens when you turn against the presidency. The abogado noted that they both lost congressional leadership and oftentimes, it happens also to Senate Presidents such as Salonga.
The abogado also turns his attention to the United States. He wrote, “GWB signaled that Maj Leader Lott should go after the Thurmond controversy.”
