Senator Panfilo Lacson and Deputy Speaker Fredenil Castro (CTTO)

Fresh News: On Sunday January 14, 2018, Fredenil Castro, Deputy Speaker and a member of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, representing the Second District of Capiz, reprimanded Senator Panfilo Lacson for calling House legislators "thick-skinned" or "makapal ang mukha" for pushing a constituent gathering in changing the Charter, saying that comment was "unparliamentary" as well as "inhuman," "unprofessional" and bears a resemblance to "bad taste."

This was when the Senator during a press conference on Thursday, tore into congressmen, saying that their turn to have a joint constituent gathering to correct the constitution will abuse the regulation of checks and balance.

Senator Lacson likewise said he will document a resolution to constitute the Senate as a different body proposing corrections to the Constitution to guarantee that the upper chamber isn't rendered superfluous in altering the most noteworthy rule that everyone must follow and added that if all constituent assembly will be having no check and balance, they will be eaten up by congress' votes.

He said, "Kung isang buong constituent assembly yung both houses, wala nang check and balance. Kakainin kami lahat ng boto ng mga kongresista (sa Kamara)".

The senator also harshly criticized that that if the congress will push to holdover, they really are "thick-skinned" or "makapal ang mukha"

"Kung ganun kakapal yung pagmumukha nila, e ano ang magpe-prevent? Kakapal lalo ang pagmumukha nila kapag nag-holdover na sila," said the senator.

Now, Castro gets back on Lacson and told in an interview that the senator's comment was "inhuman," and "unprofessional".

The Deputy Speaker also exhorted Lacson not to put his fellow lawmakers in such an awful taste, as the indicated "selfish motive" behind congressmen's push for a constituent get together are all "speculative" or "theoretical."

"Unang-una, itong mga akusasyon na yung mga term extension, mga benepisyo na sinasabi nila na nilalakad nito, ay masyado namang speculative pa yan," Fredenil Castro said.

"Kung iilang tao lamang ang nagsasabi niyan, e hindi naman yan kabuuan ng Mababang Kapulungan," he added.

Castro also pointed out that Lacson has no privilege to blame and accuse fellow lawmakers and that the electorate alone can judge the capacities of the officials, not their associate legislators like Lacson.

"Wala kang karapatan na sabihin yan sapagkat ang taumbayan lamang ang may karapatan na hatulan ang mga kongresista, gaya ng ang may karapatan na hatulan ang mga senador ay ang taumbayan," he exclaimed.

"Ine-expect ng ating mga mamamayan na maging edukado tayo sa pananalita natin dahil kung akusahan mo ang mga kapwa mo mambabatas na makakapal ang mukha, para namang ito ay taliwas o hindi angkop sa mabuting panlasa," Castro added.

Castro also included that Senator Lacson ought to be more cautious of what he says in regards to his fellow lawmakers as he may lose the regard of the individuals who voted in favor of him.

He also implied that what the senator did was not a good reflection of a lawmaker and again pointed out that the senator's remarks was "unparliamentary", very"inhuman," "unprofessional" and "poorly educated".

"Hindi ito tamang repleksyon ng isang pagkatao na inaasahan ng ating mga mamamayan sa isang mambabatas na kapareho ni Senator Ping Lacson," said Castro

"Hindi lamang unparliamentary, kundi hindi makatao, hindi propesyunal, walang edukasyon," he added.
