De Lima, Ousted as Justice Committee Chair

De Lima, Ousted as Justice Committee Chair

Senator Leila De Lima voted out as Justice Committee Chair after the majority of the senators approved Senator Manny Pacquiao’s motion to declare the Justice Committee chair and its members vacant.

The motion of Sen. Pacquiao initially opposed by Senate President Pro Tempore Franklin Drilon stating that Pacquiao’s motion is not allowed under the rules of the Senate.

Senate President Koko Pimentel III has moved to divide the chamber and called for a roll call voting after resuming from minutes of suspension requested by Drilon.

The motion by Senator Pacquiao resulted to 16 senators agreed, four opposed and two abstained. The four senators opposed were said to be members of the Liberal Party including Frank Drilon, Kiko Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros and Bam Aquino.

The two senators who abstained were Senator Ralph Recto and Leila De Lima (walked out during the privilege speech of Senator Cayetano).

Senator Dick Gordon will replace De Lima after being elected as the new Chair of the Justice Committee.

In an interview after ousting De Lima, Pacquiao said that a committee’s job is to investigate and not to pin down the President. He added that the committee must be for the Filipinos and not just for personal motives.

In a separate interview with De Lima, the former Justice Committee chair said that the move was all part of a demolition job against her.

She added that the President is behind the plans to unseat her, De Lima added that what she already expected that it would happen due to her investigating the drug-related killings involving Duterte.

The lady senator also stated that she is not sure if Matobato, the self-confessed former DDS member will still continue to testify to the new justice committee.

On the other hand, Senator Vicente Sotto II assured that the investigation of the extrajudicial killings would pursue under the new chair, Senator Richard Gordon.
