Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque confirmed the meeting which will happen after Duterte’s ceremonial signing of several bills at Malacañang.

“This will occur after the ceremonial signing of several bills again and I know they will be discussing Bayanihan 2 and 3, beyond that I have no further information,” he added.

Several officials and civil society groups are calling to extend the validity of the Bayanihan 2 law, which is set to expire on June 30.

Bayanihan 2 was already extended six months prior to its original expiry on Dec. 31, 2020.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved on final reading the proposed third Bayanihan measure that aims to cushion the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the lives of Filipinos.
