Gary Alejano says ‘no-el’ pitch self-serving for incumbent politikos

It’s the administration’s ploy to muster enough votes for charter change.

Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano exposed yet another scam being perpetuated by House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

The Congress leader is floating the possibility of no elections by May 2019 in order to speed up the shift to a federal government. That will essentially mean a term extension for all incumbent officials.

“Term extension! This is a reward for members of Congress who will support the shift. Ang liwanag ng conflict of interest,” Alejano said as he cried foul over the proposal.
