“Ikinagagalak kong ibalita na 40 sa ating mga kababayan ay ligtas at matagumpay na nakatawid ng Rafah crossing sa Egypt.  Sila ngayon ay patungo sa Cairo, kung saan sila magmumula para makauwi nang tuluyan sa ating bansa sa susunod na mga araw,” Marcos said in a video message.

The unemployment rate in the country inched up to 4.5 percent in September from 4.4 percent in August, the Philippine Statistics Authority reported Wednesday.

A nationwide survey of 11,156 households showed there were 2.26 million people who were either jobless or out of business in September, a tad higher than 2.21 million recorded in August, the PSA said.

Gloria Arroyo explains: I have always supported Romualdez as Speaker

Pampanga 2nd District Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo maintained that she supports the leadership of Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez even after being stripped of the deputy speakership position.

Arroyo asserted that she did not sign House Resolution No. 1414 – which eventually caused her removal from the post – because it “does not contain anything new” as she has “always supported” Romualdez as the top leader of the House of Representatives.
