Buhay na alamat! Bong Revilla impressed by Jose De Venecia’s long career in politics

Jan 2, 2019 @ 8:24

Former senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. looks up to former House Speaker Jose De Venecia when it comes to longevity in politics.

In a Facebook post, Revilla called De Venecia a “buhay na alamat” (living legend) because he has yet to retire as a politiko.

“Sa haba at lawak ng kanyang karera sa serbisyo publiko, talagang aprubado sa pagiging buhay na alamat si Manong Joe De Venecia,” he said.

Revilla’s post was accompanied by a photo of him with De Venecia, with his arm around the former lawmaker.

In another post, Revilla said it seemed like De Venecia has no plans of retiring for good.

“Halos inilaan na niya ang kanyang buhay sa pagiging isang lingkod bayan at opisyal ng pamahalaan, ngunit mukhang wala pa sa isip ni Dating House Speaker Jose De Venecia ang pagreretiro,” he said.

De Venecia serves as President Rodrigo Duterte’s special envoy for intercultural dialogue and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.

Revilla and De Venecia met recently in Pangasinan.
