Sotto: What is wrong with the current Senate leadership?
MANILA, Philippines — “What’s wrong about the current Senate leadership?” Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III asked on Friday.
“Ano ba ang gusto nila? Ano ba ang hindi nila gusto sa leadership ng Senado sa kasulukuyan na 75 plus ang approval and trust rating record ever from the 8th Congress 1987 up to now?
Ano ang diperensya? [Yan ang] maganda tanungin sila bakit gusto nila palitan,” Sotto told AM radio station DZMM on Friday.
*What do they want? What is it that they do not like about the current Senate leadership whose 75 plus approval and trust rating is a record from the 8th Congress in 1987 up to now? What is the problem? That’s a good question for those who want to replace me.)
This was after are Senator-elect Imee Marcos said some senators are pushing for Senator Cynthia Villar to become Senate President in the 18th Congress, which will open in July.
Sotto stressed that the majority of senators will decide if the Senate President will be replaced.
“Ang nagdedesisyon sa Senado hindi ako at hindi yung kung sino sino lang ang nagdedesisyon yung majority. So yung majority ng senator yun yung tatanungin kung ang gusto nilang leadership ang mananatili,” Sotto said.
(It’s not me or just anybody who decides at the Senate, it’s the majority. Ask the Senators if they want the current leadership to stay.) (Editor: Eden Estopace)
