PingBills | ‘Designated Survivor’ ang Peg: Dapat May Reserbang Presidente ang β€˜Pinas – Ping

Ipinanukala ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang pagkakaroon ng “reserba” pang lider ng bansa sakaling mapahamak ang Bise Presidente, Senate President at House Speaker na batay sa Saligang Batas ay kahalili ng Pangulo kung hindi na nito kayang mamuno.

Isinampa ni Lacson ang Senate Bill 982, na tinaguriang “Designated Survivor” Bill na naglalayong hindi mabakante ang liderato ng pamahalaan at magtuloy-tuloy pa rin ang operasyon ng gobyerno sakali mang mapahamak ang mga nabanggit na opisyal.

“This bill … seeks to provide an exhaustive line/order of presidential succession in the event of death, permanent disability, removal from office or resignation of the Acting President to ensure that the office of the President is never vacated even in exceptional circumstances,” paliwanag ni Lacson.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson has filed a “designated survivor” bill to guarantee the continuity and stability of operations in government in case of a terrorist attack, major disaster or other “exceptional circumstances” where the President and those specified by the Constitution to succeed him or her are killed or permanently disabled.

Lacson said Senate Bill 982 ensures the office of the President will not be vacated even in the event of death, permanent disability, removal from office, or resignation of the Acting President.

Ping sa Publiko: Sama-sama Tayo sa Pagkapa sa Pork sa 2020 Budget

Thumbnail No to Pork Barrel

Muling hinikayat ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang publiko na tumulong sa pagbabantay sa gagawing deliberasyon ng lehislatura sa mahigit P4 trilyong panukalang badyet para sa 2020.

Ito ay upang hindi na makalusot pa ang pork barrel at mga walang kabuluhang alokasyon na taun-taon na lamang ay isinisingit ng mga tiwaling mambabatas at opisyal.

“Any technical support from the outside will certainly help in our scrutiny of the 2020 budget books,” pahayag ni Lacson sa kanyang Twitter account.

Bilang nangunguna sa kampanya laban sa katiwalian at pork barrel sa pambansang gastusin, isiniwalat ni Lacson na malaki ang maitutulong kung sasamahan siya ng publiko sa pagsuri sa mga pondong inilalaan sa mga proyekto.

“This is taxpayers’ money we are talking about. We should not allow a greedy few to lay their grubby hands on it, to put it mildly,” mariing paalala ni Lacson sa publiko.

Hide and Seek: Lacson Enlists Public’s Help in Tracking Down Pork in 2020 Budget

Thumbnail No to Pork Barrel

As he prepares to engage in yet another protracted game of “hide-and-seek” against pork in the 2020 national budget, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is enlisting the help of the public – especially fellow taxpayers – in exposing such dubious insertions and useless appropriations.

Lacson, an untiring watchdog of the national budget and avowed enemy of the pork barrel system, said any forensic or technical help from outside Congress would greatly help in exposing and removing pork in the spending bill.

“Any technical support from the outside will certainly help in our scrutiny of the 2020 budget books,” he said in a post on his Twitter account.

He also sought support from the people in watching the budget process, to remove the pork that caused the delay in the passage of the 2019 budget.

“This is taxpayers’ money we are talking about. We should not allow a greedy few to lay their grubby hands on it, to put it mildly,” he stressed.

“We need a strong anti-terrorism law.”

At the hearing of the Senate Committee on National Defense, Sen. Lacson stressed the need to pass a stronger anti-terrorism law soonest, citing signs of radicalism and extremism making their way to Philippine shores.

Lacson also strongly suggested that the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), headed by former Sen. Gringo Honasan, play a more active role against terrorism as it deals with telcos and ISPs.

Several aspects of the proposed anti-terrorism measure were tackled, including the removal of predicate crimes, making terrorism a continuing crime, and extending the reglamentary period in the detention of suspected terrorists to 14 days, extendible further to another 15 days.
