UNTV News and Rescue

MANILA – The Super Majority Coalition remains strong in the lower house of Congress. This is why the impeachment complaint against President Rodrigo Duterte may not progress.

House Committee on Justice Representative Reynaldo Umali said the committee will discuss the impeachment complaint next week.

“The super majority is still in place. In fact I think the super majority even got stronger during the break,” Rep. Umali said.

For an impeachment complaint to progress, majority of the lawmakers’ votes are needed.

Out of the 292 members of the Lower House, 267 are members of the majority coalition.

The minority bloc has no decision yet on the matter.

“Pero dito sa impeachment issue on Digong and the vice president (As for the impeachment issue on Digong and the vice president), I think the position of the minority will be  one vote,” House minority leader Rep. Danilo Suarez said.

Until now, no member of the Lower House has endorsed the impeachment complaint against Vice President Leni Robredo.

According to the House Speaker’s office, they have received a copy of the impeachment complaint from the group Impeach Leni Movement, but there is still no endorser. – Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue
