MANILA, Philippines — Hindi nakatutok ang administrasyong Aquino sa kasalukuyan sa pulitika o sa paparating na 2016 presidential elections.

Ito ang pahayag ng Malacañang sa kabila ng ulat na inaalok umano ng liberal party si Vice President Jejomar Binay na maging standard bearer ng partido sa 2016.

“Sa kasalukuyan po at sa mga darating pang mga buwan ang, focus ng ating pangulo at ang gabinete ay yung pagpapatupad sa mga programa at reporma, yung pagbawas sa kahirapan. Ang inyong pinansin ay malayo pa sa target,” saad ni PCCO Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr.

Lumabas ang isyu, dahil na rin sa madalas na nababanggit ng pangulo si Binay sa ilang pagtitipon at sa mga pahayag na sa kabila na opposition leader ang bise presidente ay may magandang relasyon siya kay pangulong Aquino.

Gayunpaman, ayaw nang magkomentaryo ng palasyo sa isyung ito. Maging ang ilang mga kaalyado ng administrasyon  ay ayaw munang magkomentaryo.

Ayon kay Iloilo Rep. Niel Tupas Jr., wala pang pormal na pahayag ang kanilang partido ukol rito at maghihinatay na lamang kung may posibilidad na mangyari ito.

“In politics anything is possible, we have a presumptive candidate,” ani Tupas.

“Nothing is impossible in politics,” wika ni Cavite Rep. Elpidio Barzaga Jr.

“Wala kaming pinag-uusapan dahil amin pong hinihintay ang desisyon ng pangulong Noynoy,” pahayag ni Senate president Franklin Drilon. (Nel Maribojoc, UNTV News)

2022 national budget, patuloy pang binubusisi ni Pangulong Duterte — Malakanyang

Robie de Guzman   •   December 28, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Patuloy pang binubusisi ng Office of the President ang 2022 national budget kaya hindi natuloy ang nakatakda sanang ceremonial signing nito ngayong Martes.

Pagtitiyak ni acting Presidential Spokesperson at Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles, agad pipirmahan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang P5.024 trilyong panukalang pondo oras na matapos ang ginagawang review.

“We would want to assure and we assure the public that the budget will be signed. Pipirmahan po ni Pangulong Duterte ang budget for 2022 bago pa man sumapit ang December 31,” ani Nograles.

Aniya, kailangang mapirmahan ang pondo upang matiyak na hindi mag-ooperate ang pamahalaan sa ilalim ng re-enacted budget sa susunod na taon.

Oras na mapirmahan din ang national budget, sinabi ng Malakanyang na maaari nang magamit ang pondo para sa Odette recovery efforts sa Enero. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Rosalie Coz)
