PUPPET

PRESIDENT Rody Duterte is in control and will not take orders from anybody especially from a lackey of a foreign tycoon.

That was the clear message he sent when he rebuked (read: insulted) PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan who arrogantly stated that the government should not stand in the way of businesses especially concerning their company’s upcoming projects and programs.

Now congressman from Pampanga, GMA has announced she would file the proposed "Metro Manila Traffic Crisis Act of 2016", a bill seeking to grant newly installed President Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte emergency powers to address the economy-threatening conundrums in the streets of the metropolis.

GMA proposes a number of measures authorizing Duterte to enter into negotiated contracts for traffic and transportation projects without bidding, and to reorganize the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), among other prerogatives.
