welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon thinks that death penalty with cannot thrive in the senate because of cross-party opposition. “It’s not simply because of the LP or Liberal Party. Individually or collectively, the senators believe that we should not impose the death penalty. Seven from the majority coalition and six from the minority are against its reimposition,” Drilon discloses.

[VIDEO]: Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said Wednesday that he does not see the Senate passing a bill to reimpose the death penalty with opposition to the proposal crossing party lines.

No Hearing on 8 Bills

At the moment, eight bills are in the Senate that impose the death penalty for various crimes. All are pending and no hearing is held, except for one. There are about 13 senators who might vote against the reinstatement of the death penalty, explains Drilon. Six in the minority will surely oppose plus LP, Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto.

Positive Outlook

Senator Manny Pacquiao who is pushing for its reinstatement in the Senate said it will give the law more teeth. He insinuates that would be criminals will think twice to commit crimes if there’s a tough punishment – like losing their lives.

Pacquiao’s Take

 “We must speak to these criminal minds in the only language they understand. They must understand that our government will put a stop to impunity. They have profited from thousands upon thousands of Filipino youths. It must stop now,” Pacquiao said. As a born again Christian, he also added that the death penalty is lawful, moral and sanctioned governmental action.

Death Penalty Cannot Get Enough Nods

Drilon implied that it’s not about the Liberal Party members blocking the reimposition of the death penalty in the senate. It’s about not being able to get enough approvals from the senators of the different political groups. Just a matter of conscience voting.

[VIDEO]: Few months ago, Senator Nancy Binay felt vindicated with the developments in the Senate. Now, she puts that behind her and Praises Pacman for the win against Vargas.

Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao

Muling ipinamalas sa atin ng ating pambansang kamao, si Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao, ang galing at determinasyon ng Pilipino nang kanyang sungkutin ang World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight belt mula sa Mehikanong si Jesse Vargas.

Despite all the advantages that the younger Vargas had over him, all the doubts on his conditioning, and the talks on his retirement, Manny again proved all his detractors wrong.


Pinatuyan ni Manny na kaya pa niyang lumaban, na kaya pa niyang manalo.

I have seen how Senator Manny works in the Senate, on how dedicated he is to serve our country. I believe that this is the same fire that fuels him in boxing and it is very much alive.


Maraming salamat, Manny, sa karangalan at papuri na iyong inaani para sa bansa. Ngunit higit pa dito, maraming salamat sa iyong pagiging inspirasyon sa bawat Pilipino — na kaya nating abutin ang bawat pangarap basta’t mayroon tayong pagsisikap, tiyaga, at pananampalataya sa sarili’t at sa Maykapal.

Isang mainit na pagbati sa iyong tagumpay, Manny! Mabuhay ang Pambansang Kamao! Mabuhay ang Pilipino!

Pacquiao’s Priority; Missed the Briefing of New Senators but had thorough Orientation with Team

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
PhilStar reported: “Senators-elect Manny Pacquiao and Leila de Lima failed to attend the orientation for new senators on Monday. Pacquiao’s Chief of Staff Kit Mercado explained that the outgoing Sarangani congressman had to fly to General Santos City to attend a meeting with local government officials. ”We don’t know the concern [that made him go] there, but he is supposed to be really here,” Mercado told the media. Pacquiao earlier promised to erase his tag as one of the members of Congress who missed the most sessions”.

On the other hand, De Lima explained that she was already previously briefed, on a one-on-one session, by a Senate official. New senators and their staff were briefed about legislative work, maintenance, salaries and security in the Senate – but prior to that, Pacquiao’s team already went through a nine-day course briefing including overviews on key issues in governance and nation building.

Perhaps, it’s just a matter of priorities as far as De Lima and Pacquiao are concerned. In their job, it’s not only attendance that matters – especially when other more important tasks are in the pipe line like providing public service to your constituents.
