Danilo Suarez welcomes Arroyo as new Speaker
Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez, in his Manila Standard column, said he welcomes the leadership of new Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
The Quezon politiko said Arroyo is a “hardworking and workaholic public official.”
“It is with high hopes that this new leadership will usher in significant improvements in the performance of the House,” Suarez said.
“I anticipate that Congress will adopt the same diligence and perseverance in accomplishing legislative tasks to meet deadlines, pass bills, and act on resolutions in a timely manner for the benefit of the public,” he added.
While Suarez earlier vowed to head a “constructive” Minority, he also said he will uphold its function to maintain the checks and balance in the House.
“The Minority group promises that it will remain critical as necessary to maintain checks and balance in the 17th Congress,” he said.
