House plenary rejects Cayetano's offer of resignation as Speaker

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Cayetano: I am offering my resignation here and now to you, my dear colleagues."

"After Cayetano offered to resign as House Speaker, which follows his past statements that he would honor the term sharing agreement with Velasco, the House plenary rejected Cayetano's offer with a vote of 184-1 and 9 abstentions."

"While the Philippine economy struggles due to the pandemic and thousands of Filipinos continue to get infected with COVID-19, which Cayetano mentioned in his speech, he had the time to air his grievances against his political rival Rep. Lord Velasco."

"Cong. Velasco is appealing to Cayetano to honor their gentleman's agreement on term sharing for Speaker. Well, he made 2 crucial errors. First, he assumed that Cayetano is a gentleman. Second, he assumed that Cayetano has a word of honor."- Sonny Trillanes

Third, "sharing" doesn't exist in Cayetano's dictionary because spouses do not even share the same address with them representing different districts of Taguig. At least they are sharing Taguig, and Pateros as well, amongst their family.

Nagkamali talaga si "Cauldron King." Isipin ninyo naman na pinaniwala nilang mag-asawa ang mga tao na nakatira sila sa magkaibang bahay para lang makatakbo at maboto sa kongreso. Doon pa lang, red flag na.

I would say there's a fourth error: Believing in a Du30 brokered deal.

Among all desiring to become president, he is the most driven, most resolute & most focused. Watch out, Philippines! 

I should have said he is the most devious.

Looks like the proverbial "honor among thieves" is over-rated. If I remember correctly, the original saying is “There’s NO HONOR among thieves”. So the distracting Cayetano-Velasco tiff is NO surprise.

No one will ever believe Allan Peter Cayetano (APC) if he does not honor this agreement. He is consistently becoming inconsistent. his word is becoming 1 cent worth What he said of ABS-CBN is still very vivid in our minds:

'".. no’ng sinabi naming 'di magsasara, 'yan ang paninindigan namin. Kung kailangan physically ako ang mag-on ng transmitter or pumunta doon, gagawin ko 'yan"- Cayetano

Channeling Dutertes love for hyperbole and jetski:

“Power doesn't corrupt people, people corrupt power."

The agreement that was agreed upon in full view of the people should be materialized and honored. They are both public officials and word of honor are always seen in the highest respect for this agreement. People are in the waiting. 

Only this admin allowed term-sharing.  Velasco never knew that Cayetano will not allow him to take over after his term so the agreement will never take effect for sure.

Even if his fellow congressmen want him to remain as House Speaker, he should step down as previously agreed upon. A gentleman's agreement so to speak.

This is proof that there are politicians who would do anything and everything to stay in power.

The vagaries of kaldero poly-ticks at Mordor.

Honor, Dishonor

Truth, Misdirection

Trust, Betrayal


Velasco relied on the support of Sara Duterte. If Cayetano won't step down, Sara Duterte will have to flex her muscles to remove him and put her good friend Velasco as Speaker.

I don't get it why both Duterte and Cayetano need to 'offer' to resign. Don't offer. Just resign, if you really mean it. 

Well, it is obvious both don't mean to resign. They really want to stay forever.

Offer to Resign: The series. Hahaha. Sino kaya susunod?
