JDV says House to continue impeachment proceedings on Wednesday

November 13, 2007 9:29pm
It will be a regular working day at the House of Representatives on Wednesday, even after the explosion at Batasan Pambansa that killed one and hurt at least seven others including three lawmakers, Speaker Jose de Venecia Jr told reporters Tuesday night.

"Tuloy ang impeachment proceedings," De Venecia said, pertaining to the House deliberations on the impeachment complaint filed against President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

DzBB quoted the Speaker as saying that House sessions should push through to show that Congress would not be cowed by the perpetrators of the incident.

Wednesday's session will start at 9:30 a.m., but De Venecia said the whole Batasan complex would have to be cleaned up first, before the session starts to ensure the safety of congressmen and House employees. - GMANews.Tv
