On the other hand, deliberations on the ad-interim appointment of Commission on Audit Chairperson Gamaliel Cordoba were suspended.

The CA, a constitutional commissions and offices panel, discussed Cordoba’s appointment. Still, its hearing was suspended after a heated exchange between Senator Risa Hontiveros and Sagip Party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta on the shutdown of media giant ABS-CBN Corp.

The opposition senator raised the broadcasting network’s closure as Cordoba was the commissioner of the National Telecommunications Commission when ABS-CBN was ordered to cease operations.
