 “Puwede, puwede (He is qualified),” said recently by former five-time Speaker Jose de Venecia, the power behind the vaunted Rainbow Coalition of congressmen in the former Ramos Administration.
Known as JDV, he said in a social function here that Cayetano, who was the vice presidential tandem of President – Elect Rodrigo Duterte, can wiggle to the senate presidency through his ability and the influences of Duterte to the members of the 24-man August Chamber.
It depends upon your ability to mobilize strategic intra-party quantities,” he stressed.
The former Speaker agreed that Duterte’s support will have a say for the senator’s choice of their top whip when the Senate convenes on July this year.
"He has a definite say".
The president-elect in his recent media interviews disclosed that he was hands off on the selection for the senate's top man.
Cayetano, a member of the Nationalista Party, recently said that 15 members of the Senate already signified their commitment to support him.
