Sotto dares Aquino to certify FOI bill

MANILA, Philippines—Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III on Friday dared President Aquino to certify the Freedom of Information (FOI) bill as urgent just like what he did for the highly contentious Reproductive Health bill which was recently enacted into law.

Sen. Francis Escudero, a close ally of President Aquino, expressed optimism that Mr. Aquino would do so when the FOI measure reaches the plenary in the House of Representatives.

“In the case of the RH bill, half of the country was opposing it. With the FOI, almost the entire country wants it,” Sotto said in a text message.

Sotto cited the urgency of the passage of the FOI bill since the House of Representatives only has nine session days left to approve the measure before Congress goes on recess for the election period.

While the Senate has already approved its version of the FOI bill—the People’s Ownership of Government Information or Pogi Bill—on third and final reading before the Christmas break, the transparency measure has yet to reach the House plenary.

“[They] have only nine days and it’s not yet even in the plenary as I understand. Certifying it will send a signal to the House of Representatives that he wants it passed,” Sotto said.

Asked whether he was calling on the President to certify the FOI bill in the House as urgent, Sotto said, “Yes, because our countrymen are clamoring for it.”

Escudero, chair of the Senate committee on justice and human rights, said the President might just be waiting for the proper timing to certify the FOI bill as urgent.

“It would definitely help but Malacañang can only do that after it has been reported out to the plenary. Certification signifies that the Palace is behind the measure and carries a lot of political weight,” Escudero told the Inquirer in a text message.

FOI proponents in the House have expressed concern that floor deliberations on the FOI could be derailed by absenteeism since many lawmakers would already be in their respective districts to prepare for their election campaigns.

The FOI bill passed the House committee on public information before the Christmas break but it has yet to be reported out in the House plenary.

Asked if he would call on the President to certify the bill as urgent, Escudero said, “I believe he will. Perhaps, [he’s] just awaiting the version that will reach the plenary.”

In December, Sen. Gregorio Honasan, chair of the Senate committee on public information and sponsor of the People’s Ownership of Government Information, already called on the House to prioritize its version of the FOI bill and suggested that President Aquino certify the transparency measure as urgent.

“I want to inhibit myself from commenting on the dynamics of the bigger house… but having said that I think they should develop a sense of priority not only from the House but from the executive department,” Honasan said in a phone interview after the Senate passed the Pogi bill, the Senate version of the FOI.

  • http://twitter.com/whipnsaddle Bastonero

    Good for Tito Sen and for the people, feel naman ngayon ng good Senator natin kung papaano maghintay ng resulta ng isang Bill na ayaw ipasa gaya ng RH bill na ayaw ni Tito Sen, begging sya ngayon, tabla-tabla lang ang laban, but this bill should consider urgent by Pnoy.

    Pass the FOI bill. It is good for the country.

  • Rolly257

    The Sotto copy is joining the bandwagon…nakiki-angkas. he knew that it’s only a matter of time before the FOI Bill gets certified as urgent.

    Less than 10% of the populace opposed (mayayaman lang at may kaya sa buhay) the RH Bill.

    Mga senador at kongresista takot sa pamunuan ng katoliko, kaya pinahirapan nila ang pagpasa ng RH Bill.

  • el_latigo

    May pakinabang rin pala tayo kahit papaano kay Tito Sen!!!!

     For once, he is talking and acting with sense for challenging the sitting president to certify this important, but not as important as the Anti-Dynasty Bill now rotting in the corners of both houses, proposed law. I say kudos to Sotto in throwing the gauntlet on  PNoy’s face to certify as urgent the FOI Bill!  Sa ngayon inaaamag-amag na ito at bumabantot na rin dahil walang ganang tinatapunan lang ng tanaw ni PNoy  at hindi sine-certify hangga ngayon ito. Bakit kaya Fulpy, este @Fulpol:twitter Kulapol? Why not challenge the present administration as well, Tito Sen, to draft, certify as most urgent and pass enacting laws to make the Anti-Dynasty provision of the Consti a realization, a dream come true for all Filipinos, if that happens?  Right now di lang  inaamag at  inaagiw ito sa 2 sulok ng Kongreso ang napakahalaga sanang batas na ito upang mabawas-bawasan naman kundi man masugpo kahit papaano ang korupsyon dahil sa nagkalat sa lansangang political dynasties sa  malas pa ring bansang ito sa pamamagitan ng pagpasa nito.
    Hahanga ako ng tuluyan kay PNoy (& Tito Sen kung hahamunin niya si PNoy at papatol naman ito) kung sa administrasyon niya mapapasa ang matagal ng inaasam-asam ngunit maasim na kundi man mapakla na ngayon, ang pangarap  ng bayan na ito. 

    I SAY PASS THE ANTI-DYNASTY BILL NOW!!! Or humongous corruption that kills will continue to proliferate and reign in this country for as long as these political dynasties are around.

    • Fulpol

      el latigo,

      since time immemorial, Fulpol had already pushing for anti-dynasty law.. were you absent?

      Very true! The Anti DYNASTY and the FOI Bills are two of the most important bills that will measure Pnoy’s sincerity of bringing this country to its destined Tuwid Na Daan.

      But I am not that confident that these politicos led by the President will have the courage to approve bills that will dynamite its own skulls.

    Ipapasa rin ang FOI  bill pero patatagalin iyon tulad ng RH bill na halos binuro nila Sotto, Enrile at Estrada. Di ba halos 13 years na binuro ang RH bill pero itong FOI bill ay wala pang 3 yrs. ay nagkukumahog na si SottoCopy na aprobahan ito. I believe Aquino will make this a priority too and will be signed within 2 months. Sotto should shut up because he is no longer believable. Magstay na lang siya sa Eat Bulaga at magresign na sa pagiging Senator. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

    • el_latigo

      @Fulpol: Sotto is maingay alright but not in a positive way actually. To tell you the truth, judging on how he had become popular or unpopular(?) he had  become lately, I don’t think he is in an enviable position  that we should be envious of him. Quite on the contrary Fulpy….

  • basilionisisa

    be careful of what you wish for, Mr Sotto, you might get it! i hope you are ‘truly’ ready to deliver.

    FOI is a good Bill in principle, but in reality is a sticky issue as experienced by governments in other democratic countries. Congress must study its provisions very carefully, especially issues concerning our country’s Security, not to mention every individual’s Right to Privacy.

    baka sa ating kasabikan sa Freedom of (getting) Information, kung anu-anong can of worms ang maglabasan, maski hindi na relevant sa ikabubuti ng bansa, baka tsismis at unsupported rumors lang ang maglabasan at makasira at makaabala sa mga pending court cases.

    let us not rush the deliverations of a serious Bill. also, its debate must be shared with the public.

      the issue is FOI, not Sotto.

      Your dislike of a person is clouding your judgement.

      I don’t like Sotto. But he’s integrity has nothing to do with the issue.

      in other words, you are barking at the wrong tree.

      Are you saying that prioritizing FOI is wrong?

  • Pok2

    I don’t believe the President is sincere and truly look for the interest of the people. He’s just as corrupt like anybody else. Pino lang siya.  RH bill was pushed due to more funding from UN and DOH officials are making a killing on it. We have an AIDS and Dengue cure and he’s blind on it and he knows it. Even DOST Sec Montejo said they will look into it but didn’t. Kawawa si Juan de la Cruz. Mga corrupt din talaga sila.

    • superpilipinas

      Exactly.

      Hundreds of children die of Dengue and DOH has admitted to Inquirer News that they failed to contain it. Yet the priority of the government is foolish bills like RH, Divorce, etc.

      Corruption.

      • Pok2

         Please watch “Dengue Killer” at you tube and see the testimonials of the people. Thousands has been cured here in Zambales.

        Spread the word Mr. Rooney. Salamat. At mas murang malayo ang gamutan compared to In patient hospital treatment. It’s meant for Juan de la Cruz and the Doctors are compassionate at di mukhang pera because thay could have charge more than 4500.

        Eric, I know a lot of things going on due my background and I am not at liberty to disclose all of them. But I’ll give you guys a case. Go to RITM and look at the AIDS patients and they keep on getting worst by taking ARV which is funded by UN and Philhealth despite the fact that my friend already brief the SEC of DOST and he brief PINOY about it and he does not even want to take a look at it. Why, because of the donations and perks being given by the GIANT PHARMACEUTICALS to push their products even we have a cure for AIDS. Even PNOY cannot resist corruption. You called me names. I think your mother is a WHORE. You could be my son .

      • GlenMJacob

        Pok2, if indeed your friend has a cure for AIDS I suggest he should apply for a research grant from AIDS foundation. Until your friend submit to the medical community a credible research paper all the claims you have written are just but an imagination. Your friend should know that the President is not the right person to even talk to. You are just dragging the name of the president for whatever is your intention.

    • TNDBELIEVER

      Give one proof – just one! – that President Aquino is corrupt.  Can you? 

    • GlenMJacob

      Pok2, if you have a cure to AIDS and Dengue please publish the supporting documents. Lip service or case report is not a scientific research. We have a process in science or Medicine that we follow in doing research. Claims of cure is not science we need evidence and reproducible results.

    This so called…………”can’t get my mouth shut (Sotto)”, did it again.  Just to stir the pot, he’s daring the current president to certify this F.O.I. when this idea should have been implemented and passed already long time ago.  Even during the time of Cory Aquino administration, that’s one law that would have made a big different into the politicians accountability.  It was not even thought and put into the mind of these politicians at that time and now this guy Sotto making quite an issue of it.  You are 40 years behind, my friend.  During the Marcoses, it would have never pass or even put into paper………you know the reason why.  Now that Marcos was kicked out, that law would have been a perfect tool at that time to make the politicians accountable.  After over 40 years, now this guy Sotto daring the current president to certify this law.  Where were you Sotto during the time when politicians like the…..the Ramoses, the Enriles, the Estradas, the Arroyos having the time of their life filling up their cofers.   Are you just kinda sore loser on the RH bill that you’re trying to make yourself known that you are on the side of the masses.  You are 40 years too late, my friend………So, please (Sotto), you don’t have to dare the president.  As what president Aquino  always say anyway, the people are his boss.   If he really want to continue his “daang matuwid, the president, he will do what is best for the people even with or without your dare……

      You forgot, PASSING OF THE FOIB is PNOY’S CAMPAIGN PROMISE because, as he said, it was an important tool for good governance and transparency. Hence, he doesn’t even have to be dared by anyone, he only needs to fulfill this campaign promise.

      Ayaw na ba nya ngayon, because he and his political allies are the possible recipients of this bill?

      Weder weder lang? So where’s Daang Matuwid?

        If Aquino doesn’t pass F.O.I., then life goes on and corruptions in the country continues.  What is new anyway.  However, it’s the filipinos who will decide at the end………so better use of your tool (vote).  It is the only one you have to rid of these crooks…….filipinos knows who they are.

  • superpilipinas

    It is so obvious. FOI will reveal the corruption of many government officials. So why would they pass it?

    PNoy is a benafactor of this corruption. By not certifying it urgent, he gets the support of Congress  for his corrupted priorities.

    They like to pass laws that generate and spend money. But in order to steal some of those, FOi law must not be passed.

    If FOI is passed, don’t be surprised that it is the most watered down version.

Kung hindi ma-uphold ang anti-cybercrime law, hindi ipapasa ang FOI bill. Maraming politiko ang takot sa FOI bill. Si PNoy ay natatakot din.

    what sotto is NOT: -sotto is not concern about the after-effects of the bill that will benefit the people in general, because he is simply a decapitated sociopath. his head and brain is nowhere. -and sotto is neither concern about the urgency of that bill for he is selfishly concern only of his numb face to save, then hope to get another score politically. tito, the people now know your being a psychopath and ultimately useless in the society. and that will finally proven come election time.

    PNoy had to certify as urgent the passage of the RH bill to law. This RH law will then fast-track the passage of  Divorce bill, and finally the Same-Sex Marriage bill into law.
