WITHDRAWING FROM IPU

The House Committee on Inter-Parliamentary Relations and Diplomacy chaired by Rep. Eric Singson (2nd District, Ilocos Sur) on Tuesday approved House Resolution 2270 entitled “Resolution Expressing Support Of The House Of Representatives For The Withdrawal Of The Membership Of The Philippines From The Inter-Parliamentary Union.” Minority Leader Danilo Suarez, author of the resolution, said the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) stepped out of its boundaries with its interference in the country’s judicial processes which runs counter to the principle of state sovereignty. Members who attended the meeting were Committee Vice-Chairman Ramon Durano VI, Reps. Jesus Nonato Sacdalan, Milagros Aquino-Magsaysay, Arlene Arcillas, Mark Aeron Sambar, Tricia Nicole Velasco-Catera, Enrico Aumentado, Scott Davies Lanete, and Micaela Violago, and House Executive Director Corazon Alano who represented Secretary General Roberto Maling in the meeting. | Ma.
