Emergency power kaugnay ng traffic crisis nais pa rin ni Duterte

By: - 09/10/2019

SINABI ng Palasyo na nais pa rin ni Pangulong Duterte na mabigyan siya ng Kongreso ng emergency power para masolusyunan ang krisis sa trapik sa bansa partikular sa Metro Manila.

Well, I think the position of the President remains; from the very start he wanted emergency power to solve the traffic problem/mess but when some senators issued statements against it and insinuated that there might be some abuse of power – he said, ‘O sige, ‘di kayo na lang,‘ at the EDSA rot,” sabi ni Presidential Spokesperson at Chief Presidential Legal  Counsel Salvador Panelo.

 Idinagdag ni Panelo na kailangan talaga ni Duterte ang kapangyariyan para masolusyunan ang problema sa trapik sa Kalakhang Maynila.

“In other words, the President wants to solve that and he really needs emergency powers. Now Secretary Tugade is pursuing it, but I understand some of the senators are for it; so let’s see how it goes,” sabi ni Panelo.

Ito’y matapos muling iginiit sa pagdinig ng Senado ni Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade na kailangang bigyan si Duterte  ng emergency power dahil sa lumalalang problema sa trapik sa bansa.

“Well, ever since he wanted it but kung ayaw ninyo, ‘di huwag sabi niya. In other words, he will not go down his knees and plead. They should know what the President needs in order to solve the problems of the country specifically with respect to this matter,” sabi ni Panelo.

Nauna nang sinabi ni Sen. Grace Poe na hindi na kailangan ni Duterte ang emergency power.

Pero I understand, isa lang naman yatang senador kumukontra ngayon. I have not heard of any other than the good Senator Grace,” giit ni Panelo.

 Napaulat na maraming pasyente ang namamatay dahil hindi nadadala agad sa mga opisyal bunsod ng trapik.

 Precisely nga. Because of that then with more reason that the members of the Senate consider the grant of emergency powers given that particular situation wherein even patients are dying because the ambulance carrying them could not reach the hospital on time,” ayon pa kay Panelo.
