It’s not just about the position.

Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano pinned down why he teamed up with solons from the Makabayan bloc and the Liberal Party to be recognized as the real Minority of the chamber.

The politiko lashed back at ex-Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas, saying it was important to recognize their voice of dissent.

“Opposition is not there just for the sake of opposing. The majority has the numbers. At the end of the day if it comes down to voting they will certainly have their way,” Alejano said.

“However, whats impt is to maintain healthy, meaningful & deliberative process in the House. That’s democracy.”

Who will emerge as the official minority bloc? Abangan.
