House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez might be indifferent to Bongbong Marcos’ sister, Imee’s case but he respects the Supreme Court, supports prolonged Martial Law, and detests Leni Robredo’s Vice Presidency. It is not certain if he really believes that the namesake won or just because he is one of the successors of the Vice Presidential seat if that is vacated.

[VIDEO]: House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez: Maiksi lang ang 60 days ng martial law
Martial Law until 2022
Alvarez said that he is quite open to extending martial law in Mindanao. Perhaps until the President steps down in 2022. This is ideal for fast-track development. The Marawi crisis and other peace and security problems in the region can also be addressed better, he added.
Robredo is NOT the Real VP
Alvarez was on the verge of petitioning an impeachment complaint against Leni Robredo as VP due to betrayal of public trust. This is when she sent a slanderous video attacking the President’s drug war with the wrong data. The president was quite vocal that he is not into the VP’s impeachment. The issue goes quite after that.
Supreme Court Ruling
Alvarez’s mouth is not that of a gentleman. He has threatened various government agency heads and agencies if they are in conflict with Congress where he is the speaker of the House. However, he does respect the Supreme Court when it rules. One incident was the Marcos’ burial. He, in fact, urged anti-Marcos protesters to follow the law.
Recently, he dares not to get involved with the Supreme Court’s motion for consideration for the Congress’cContempt citation for the justices who rule to release the six detained employees of Gov. Imee Marcos. Right after his tough remarks to the CA, he slowed down after hearing the SC’s plea to resort to other constitutional means instead. Whatever is Alvarez up to, he certainly is loyal to PDu30.
