Sibakin ang nagbibigay ng mali, gawa-gawang intel report tungkol sa LP: Pangilinan

Kung sinuman ang nagbibigay ng mga mali-mali at gawa-gawang intelligence report sa Pangulo ay dapat sibakin. Dapat binibigyan nila ng tamang impormasyong kailangan niyang malaman, hindi kaduda-dudang impormasyong tingin nilang gusto niyang marinig. Bilyon ang ginagastos sa intelligence funds, tapos gawa-gawa lang ang nasasagap na info. Nung panahon ni Marcos, ‘yan din ang bintang ng […]

Govt must focus on stabilizing prices, not destabilizing plots: Sen. Kiko

Hindi lang mapanganib ang mga intelligence report na batay sa kapraningan at haka-haka, nakamamatay pa. Pwedeng idamay nito ang mga walang-sala at mga kritikong nagpapahayag ng kanilang mga paniniwala at nagsusulong ng mga paraan para makaahon tayong lahat sa hirap. Inuulit ko: Walang kinalaman ang Partido Liberal sa anumang pakanang patalsikin o i-destabilize ang Pangulo […]

Destabilization is government’s own doing, not opposition’s: Pangilinan

The opposition does not have to do anything. On its own, either by its incompetence or corruption, the government is doing a good job of destabilizing itself. All Malacañang has to do is listen to its own allies who, like the opposition, are calling for the resignation of DA and NFA officials for causing the […]

Mungkahi ng Pangalawang Pangulo bilang pagtugon sa problema ng pagtaas ng presyo ng mga bilihin

Ilang linggo na din po tayong nanawagan sa ating pamahalaan na agarang gumawa ng hakbang para tugunan ang tuloy-tuloy na pagtaas ng presyo ng bilihin, lalong lalo na ang bigas. Noong nakaraang linggo, tila magkakasalungat po ang narinig nating pahayag mula sa iba’t ibang opisyal ng ating pamahalaan ukol dito. Alam naman po natin, ang […]

Statement of Erin Tanada, Partido Liberal vice president on external affairs, on death threats vs Fr. Picardal

We view with great alarm the threat against the life of Fr. Amado Picardal. We call on credible authorities to ensure the safety of the Redemptorist priest and investigate the matter. The motive of those attempting to kill him was clear. He has been an outspoken critic of extrajudicial killings in Davao City when President […]

DID YOU KNOW? Pinoys’ out-of-pocket spending for health still high despite increased govt funds: Tañada

Former legislator Erin Tañada on Friday batted for the passage of the twin measures of expanded universal health care and increased tobacco tax so that Filipinos will spend less on health. Filipinos’ out-of-pocket spending for health is still high even as government funds for health increased from 29.7% in 2014 to 34.2% in 2016, the […]

Statement of Erin Tanada, Partido Liberal vice president for external affairs, On Duterte saying he will resign

It is not up to the President, and especially not a junta, to decide who takes his place when he steps down. Our Constitution clearly provides that it should be the Vice President. We wonder who at this point is still taking the President to his words, given that he threatens to resign at least […]

Statement of Erin Tanada, Partido Liberal vice-president for external affairs, on new 9-party coalition

Political parties forming alliances is not new, nor is it frowned upon. It is in fact a sign of a robust democracy, since political parties pave the way for what should be greater people participation in politics. However, the recent headline of a 9-party coalition is worrying for one of the biggest problems in Philippine […]
