Drilon: Duterte’s veto on budget based on legal, constitutional grounds


MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte’s line item veto in the 2019 national budget was based on legal and constitutional grounds and not because he “sided” with the Senate. Senate Minority Franklin Drilon said this, after the President signed on Monday the national budget, which had been delayed in Congress due to alleged ‘pork’ realignments. “The assurance given by Senate President Sotto, in this case, was qualified. Sotto believes that the P75 billion was part of the P95.3 billion worth of items vetoed by the President. /mufADVERTISEMENTREAD: Sotto signs 2019 national budget with strong reservationsRead NextLATEST STORIESMOST READ
