[VIDEO]: Do not judge and give Senator Robin Padilla a chance.
The Only Non Lawyer to Lead the Committee
Senator-elect Robin Padilla would like to head the Senate committee on constitutional amendments. He will be the only non lawyer chairman for this major committee since 1986 if ever. However, since his passion is constitutional change to Federalism, he is more than qualified to do the job.
Need to Study
Senator Sherwin Gatchalian said that the chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendments in the 19th Congress is a very complicated. But he is confident that Padilla will study this and is willing to ask for help when needed. Senator Koko Pimentel also added that the leader for this committee doesn’t have to be a lawyer.
Do Not Judge Robin Padilla
Another Senator, Chiz Escudero explained that no senator should be discriminated upon. He should be judged mainly by his performance after serving in the capacity he’s elected into. Padilla is very qualified just like any of them.
