Phl hopes DAP won't affect legislative agenda
Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said the government expects that controversies surrounding DAP will not affect the President's priority legislations.
These measures, she said, are important as the President carves his legacy in the two remaining years in office as chief executive.
Valte said among these measures is the 2015 national budget. The Aquino administration was able to push the country's budget on time, avoiding re-enacted budgets.
She said another important measure is the Bangsamoro Basic Law, which could be among the President's legacies when he steps down from power; that is to finally achieve a lasting peace in Southern Philippines.
The President vowed to ensure the conduct of a democratic and orderly election in Mindanao in 2016.
The Supreme Court ruled this week that the DAP, used to stimulate the economy by the administration, is unconstitutional.
