MANILA, Philippines – Citing the massive workload that would befall lawmakers in the upcoming 19th Congress, House Speakership contender, Majority Leader and Leyte 1st District Rep. Martin G. Romualdez called on his colleagues on Saturday to set aside politics in order to get the job done.

“Again we are following the theme, the message and the desire of the incoming administartion of President Bongbong Marcos of unity,” Romualdez told reporters during a gathering of Party-list Coalition Foundation, Inc. (PCFI) members in Rockwell, Makati City.

Romualdez was reacting to the gesture made by Ilocos Norte 1st district Rep. Sandro Marcos toward retired Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon wherein Marcos shook Guanzon’s hand.

Sandro, Bongbong’s eldest son, is being mentored by Romualdez.

“Tapos na yung eleksyon, tapos na yung politika. Magtrabaho na tayong lahat, magkaisa na tayong lahat, isang bansa, isang Pilipino. Lahat-lahat tayo para sa Pilipino,” Romualdez, the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) president, said.

“So thats what we all are about. We are about the House of the people, the House of Representatives of the Phiippines. We are for every Filipino. No more colors no more politics work.”

House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez has secured the backing of the Villar-led Nacionalista Party (NP), another major political party.

Incidentally, the UniTeam tandem of presumptive President Marcos and presumptive Vice President Sara Duterte extensively spoke about casting aside political colors once the May 9 elections are over.

“So when we start with unity, they always say, when there is unity, there is strength. Where there is strength, there is resolve; political will to do the right thing by the Filipino people,” Romualdez said.

“The House of Representatives is the house of the people and we have to serve the people particularly in this time of the pandemic. We hope that we will be reaching the endemic stage but we have to reinvigorate and restart the economy for livelihood, jobs, and of course for the education and health of every Filipino.”
