Speaker Cayetano should be removed as head of the House – Atty. Gadon

HOUSE Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano has to be replaced as head of the Chamber.

 

Atty. Larry Gadon made the statement following the move of the House to award the provisional franchise to ABS-CBN.

 

In an SMNI News interview, Gadon said it was unconstitutional to give a provisional franchise authority to a media entity.

 

Gadon added that Cayetano could not set right his leadership in the Congress and should be replaced as leader of the Lower House.

 

“Ako openly sinasabi ko na dapat nang palitan as speaker si Speaker Alan Cayetano. Hindi niya maitama ang pag-guide sa Kongreso,” Gadon said.

 

Meanwhile, Gadon said he is preparing his petition to the Supreme Court in case the provisional franchise of ABS-CBN is legalized.

 

He said it would be a shame to the country if it continued to break the law because of a private company asking for a favor.

 

“Ang iniisip ko, kahiya-hiya naman tayong Pilipinas kapag ganyan na lahat na lang sinusuway natin dahil lamang humihingi ng pabor eh isang pribado kumpanya na napakaraming pera,” Gadon said.

 

Gadon, meanwhile, believes President Rodrigo Duterte will not allow it to slip into his hands if there is a violation of the law made by Congress.

 

“Si Presidente Duterte kasi, mahigpit sa pagpapatupad ng batas yan,’ he added.
