Ralph Recto urges government to focus on typhoons not politicking

Sep 10, 2018 @ 15:38

Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto urged the government to focus on upcoming typhoons instead of politicking.

The Batangas politiko seemed to be referring to President Rodrigo Duterte’s revocation of Senator Antonio Trillanes’ amnesty.

Recto said the government must lead the public in preparing for typhoons.

“Government should brace for typhoon Neneng instead of being focused on political storms. It should be able to distinguish between a tempest in a teacup involving a few and a Category 5 storm which may put millions in harm’s way,” Recto said.

“Communications-wise, what the public ought to hear is a steady stream of typhoon information not the gale-force rhetoric from some bully pulpit,” he added.
