First time in the hot seat! Rex Gatchalian gets quizzed at Senate as Win watches


Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian experienced what it was like to be grilled by senators when he appeared at the Senate Monday as a resource person in the hearing on the provincial bus ban.

Gatchalian was invited since one of the interim terminals designated by the Metro Manila Development Authority for provincial buses is in Paso De Blas, Valenzuela.

In a Facebook post, Gatchalian noted that he had to answer questions as his brother, Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, watched.

Sherwin is a member of the Senate committee on public services, which conducted the hearing.

“This is a first…resource speaker ako while Sen. Win is part of the committee. Senate hearing on interim bus terminals one of which is in Paso de Blas,” Gatchalian said.
