The House of Representatives failed to launch the abstract of the assertion of belongings, liabilities and internet value (SALN) of its members final May because the newly-created overview committee still has not come up with rules on dealing with SALN requests.
In a press convention, Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali, chair of the committee on SALN overview, stated his panel will still draft and undertake rules on dealing with SALN requests.
Umali stated the committee wished to be certain that the brand new House rules that they’ll come up with are constant and aligned with the Supreme Court rules.
Umali stated the purpose of rivalry lies with the potential of a plague of requests for particular person SALNs, which he admitted the House is still unprepared to deal with.
“Ang contentious are marami nang mga requests for SALN of individuals. And I do not know how to deal with it,” Umali stated.
The summaries of congressmen’s SALNs are often launched in May following the deadline of SALN submitting on April 30. (Filane Mikee Cervantes/PNA)
