REASON: Sen. Pacquiao Filed a Motion That Kicked Out Sen. De Lima From Committe Chairmanship!


The Senate investigation on the alleged extrajudicial killings has sailed to the center of the ocean now and reached the climax. There are a lot of dramas happening and yesterday was a box office hit. Senator Manny Pacquiao stood up and filed a motion to expel Senator Leila De Lima from being the chairman of the Committe on Justice and Human Rights. Pacquiao originally requested for the chairmanship and the membership to be vacant. Sixteen senators voted and agreed to the motion and it was granted.

"Gusto po natin na ang committe ay para sa taong bayan, hindi lang pansarili." A very strong statement from Pacquiao and mainly the reason why he filed the motion. He did this after De Lima stepped out from the session because of the allegations being thrown to her by Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, during his privilege speech. Both Cayetano and Pacquiao are known allies of the current President.

The Senators voted for Senator Dick Gordon to take the vacant seat of the chairman and Senator Panfilo Lacson as vice chair. Apparently, Senator De Lima remains to be a member of the said controversial committee.

This is a very entertaining spectacle for us to watch. What do you think will be the results? Is this really politically motivated? Share your thoughts in the comment box. :)
