House of Representatives Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez took exception to feedback that the chamber goes after critics of President Rodrigo Duterte, together with Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, who’s going through impeachment.

“Teka muna. Hindi naman sa amin nanggaling yung impeachment complaint eh. Iyon ay nanggaling sa isang citizen, sa isang Filipino,” he mentioned.

In a press convention at a Makati resort, Alvarez mentioned the House is remitted below the Constitution to course of all impeachment complaints which can be endorsed to the chamber.

“Ngayon, meron kaming mandato sa Constitution na lahat nung impeachment complaint na ipa-file, kailangan namin na iproproseso. Hindi basta na i-ignore namin iyan. So huwag bigyan ng ibang kulay yung pagpro-process ng impeachment complaint dahil wala kaming magagawa diyan dahil trabaho namin iyan,” he mentioned.

“May nag-file ng impeachment complaint ano ang gagawin namin? Alangan naman na huwag naming pansinin iyon. So hindi namin ginagawa yung trabaho namin. Ganuon lang ka-simple iyon,” he mentioned.
