Manila, Philippines – Minority Leader and Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman asked yesterday Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. to immediately release the “rules of engagement“ to hasten the passage of the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill in the Lower House.
He said the code for the RH interpellations have been pending at the desk of House leader since August. “There has been a pending suggestion and the rules of engagement are already in the Speaker, no repetitive questions, limited time for interpellation, it has not being enforced because it is not being released by the Speaker.
We are calling on the Speaker to release soonest the rules of engagement,“ he told at the 10th leg of the “Occupy for RH campaign“ launch in front of the South gate entrance of the Batasan Complex in Quezon City. (Charissa M. Luci)
