As per news report, Martin Romualdez is set to become the next Speaker of the House, unless the Congressmen who express their support changes their minds.
Perhaps, this is the opportunity radio host and blogger Mark Lopez see and wants to exploit, no matter how small the chances of stopping Martin Romualdez from becoming the next Speaker of House.
As a native of Leyte, Martin Romualdez is my sentimental choice as the next Speaker of the House.
However, if Lopez allegations versus Martin Romualdez were true, I am keeping an open mind as to who will be the next House Speaker, other than Martin Romualdez.
Tp understand why Mark Lopez is moving heaven and earth to stop Martin Romualdez as the Speaker, please read Lopez full FB post below.
NO TO MARTIN
Martin Romualdez is the Congressman from Leyte who is now aspiring to be Speaker of the House of the incoming Congress.
He was the one who absolved Mar Roxas of culpability for the Yolanda tragedy, and even praised him when Roxas campaigned in Leyte during the 2016 national elections.
He is the cousin of Alfred Romualdez, the embattled Mayor of Tacloban during the Yolanda catastrophe. Alfred was the one whom Mar Roxas infamously berated and said “Remember that you are a Romualdez and the President is an Aquino” and “Bahala na kayo sa Buhay nyo!”
So you see?
Yung isang Romualdez (Alfred) eh tinarantado ni Mar Roxas, samantalang yung isa naman (Martin) eh puring puri kay Mar.
BTW, si Martin eh tumakbong senador nung 2016 sa ilalim ng UNA banner ni Jejomar Binay pero ayun, dumating lang si Mar sa Leyte eh biglang naging parang BFF.
Isipin nyo, under sa partido ni Binay pero pinuri si Mar nung kampanya? Tapos yung mismong kadugo nyang si Alfred eh para na din nyang nilaglag.
(I-google nyo po yan)
Tapos, yan ang gusto nyo gawing speaker ngayon?
And please lang – Hindi bloodline ng mag asawang Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos si Martin Romualdez.
He is related kay Marcos by law, not by blood.
Learn the distinction.
