Lacson re Duque inquiry: Senate might cancel if COVID-19 situation improves



It will be all for nothing.

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson said that the Senate’s could not possibly pursue its inquiry on the Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III if the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 situation would improve due to a much more organize policies.

“It would be better if we could see what would happen between now and before we resume. If there would be a big improvement, let’s just consider their output. Let’s just see. L let’s be output-based,” he said, speaking partly in Filipino.

“If the situation would improve because they changed their wrong policies and wrong moves, we may not  do an investigation. It would no longer be needed. It means [the situation] has been cured. So why should we investigate?” he added.

Lacson is one of the fourteen who signed the resolution calling for the resignation of Duque for what the Senate deems Lapses in managing the policies during the coronavirus disease pandemic.


Duque issued his apology afterwards for what the senators deemed shortcomings in handling the COVID-19 situation in the country.

Lacson commended Duque for admitting his lapses, and adds this would lead toa much more well managed reforms in addressing COVID-19.

“This is a good first step. At least, he admitted his shortcomings. What would be wrong is he did not admit it. But the mere fact that he admitted it, means that he is willing to make amends, to reform, or to change his style, or to become more efficient,” he said.
