NAGPAHAYAG ng suporta kay Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez ang mga kongresista sa Metro Manila at opisyal ng lokal na pamahalaan sa Surigao del Norte sa gitna ng mga pag-atakeng ginagawa ng mga senador.

Ipinagtanggol ng 30 kongresista mula sa 14 na siyudad ng Metro Manila si Speaker Romualdez laban sa walang basehan alegasyon ng mga senador kaugnay sa isinusulong na pag-amyenda sa restrictive economic provisions ng Konstitusyon na naglalayong paramihan ang mga dayuhang mamumuhunan sa bansa.

Isang “Statement of Solidarity” ang kanilang nilagdaan upang igiit din ang kahalagahan na itaguyod ang karapatang nakasaad sa Konstitusyon.

“Let it be said, here and now, that we the undersigned Representatives from the National Capital Region denounce efforts to foment disunity in our nation! We call on all to respect each other’s positions and the voices of our citizens and their inalienable right to be heard,” sabi sa pahayag.
