(Eagle News)–For Senator Panfilo Lacson, President Rodrigo Duterte deserves to be “president for life” if he can deliver on two promises he recently made.
Lacson said this was because if the President managed to cut down travel time from Cubao to Makati to 5 minutes within 6 months and to eliminate flight delays in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport within one month, he would officially be a “superhuman.”
“…For being superhuman, he deserves to be president for life..,” Lacson said.
To decongest Edsa, Duterte had asked for emergency powers from Congress, but a counterpart bill in the Senate granting the chief executive the same has been stalled.
Grace Poe, chair of the committee on public transportation, had expressed her apprehensions over granting the administration’s proposal.
It was Duterte who solved the “laglag-bala” problem at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport when he assumed office in 2016.
He told airport authorities to allow travelers to proceed with their flights even if a bullet had been found in their luggage after recording such incidents.
Duterte had argued a bullet could do no harm without a gun.
