NEWS: “Expected, walang nagbabago sa Congress”- Oyo Uy

On House junking of 4th impeachment complaint

dec 4

The Tagum City youthful councilor reported to be one of the congressional potentials in Davao del Norte’s 1st District has made a verbal snipe to the House in the wake of the junking on the fourth impeachment complaint against President Arroyo.

“Expected, walang nagbabago sa Congress,” Councilor De Carlo “Oyo” Uy said yesterday, apparently not hiding his feeling of frustration over the country’s legislative branch of government.

Davao del Norte congressmen Arrel Olano (District 1) and Anton Lagdameo (District 2) voted yes for the junking of the impeachment complaint during the casting of votes that ended Wednesday dawn following seven hours of floor deliberations.

Compostela Valley congressmen Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora (District 1) and Rommel Amatong (District 2) also participated in the killing of the impeachment complaint.

Councilor Uy added that while the Congress did it local officials should remain to be unperturbed and continue exerting best efforts for public service.

Oyo, son of City Mayor Rey Uy, had earlier declared that the congressional post that last-termer Olano would be leaving by 2010 is a possibility, saying he is also qualified to gun for it.

But pundits also bruited about Oyo’s possible running as city vice mayor in what Davao City Vice Mayor Sara had accomplished in 2007 polls to tandem now with her father Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

In the last 2007 polls Oyo placed Top 3 among councilor bets in a 12-0 landslide victory of Lakas-CMD city slate. At present, he is the president of Metro Shuttle-Davao Reyer Transport Services. He is a Business Management graduate of the La Salle University in Manila.

Boardmember Roger “Dangpanan” Israel and former vice governor Anthony del Rosario, son of Governor Rodolfo del Rosario, were reported to be also interested to run for the post that Lakas-CMD provincial top guns considered to be open and not a subject of the party’s rule on equity of the incumbent by 2010.

Meanwhile, Israel said that the opposition just lacked numbers to stage a good fight to push the latest impeachment.

“Walang laban, it was another wake-up call for the opposition to unite for 2010,” he added..

“It’s now or never… I’m not getting younger now, baka maiwanan tayo,” he said in text message when asked on his congressional ambition. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
