Some lawmakers hope that the Executive Legislative Development Advisory Council, or LEDAC, will begin convening.
That’s still in the middle of President Bongbong Marcos’ objection to five proposals in his first 100 days in the palace — as well as turning several bills to the previous Congress into law.
According to Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva, the LEDAC meeting will likely take place next week.
Regardless of the series of bills being rejected, the nineteen priority laws identified by Marcos will be discussed in the former Sona.
Senator Chase Escudero first said that what he called “the veto spree against the Malacanyang bill” would be avoided if someone important would link the palace to Congress in advancing the chief executive’s legislative agenda.
