Former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo may be losing her Deputy Speaker post amid her stand against the reinstatement of the death penalty.
In a recent statement of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, he mentioned that it will be awkward if Mrs. Arroyo will remain in her post, if she does not agree with the majority’s decision.
Alvarez added that the super majority in the Lower House will continue to push for the reinstating of the death penalty.
Meanwhile, Arroyo has been vocal of her position regarding the said matter. It was during her administration when the death penalty was abolished.
The former President also stressed that she already spoke with President Rodrigo Duterte regarding her stand on the said issue.
