The deputy speakers of the House of Representatives are convinced that the frankness of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez is one of the factors for the spike in his ratings.
According to Speaker Raneo Abu, the people are already tired of politicians who are sweet talkers (bolero) and who slander the reputation of others.
Abu said that the public wants honest people whose words and proposals are for the interest of majority of Filipinos.
Deputy Speaker Gwen Garcia seconded these statements and said that Filipinos have accepted the hard-work and diligence of Alvarez.
Deputy Speaker Eric Singson, meanwhile, believes that the public has seen the actions of the Lower House, which are the result of the leadership of Alvarez.
