Allies of Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco said Monday they would move to oust House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano by declaring the position vacant.

According to a manifesto circulated to media, at least 187 lawmakers have expressed their support for Velasco.

“Therefore, in accordance with Section 13, Rule 3 of the Rules of the House of Representatives, of the 18th Congress, we call to assemble, move to and cast our vote to declare the position of Speaker VACANT on Monday, October 12, 2020,” the manifesto read.

The group also said it manifests its “earnest and full commitment” to President Rodrigo Duterte’s certification of the 2021 budget as urgent.

The manifesto said the suspension of sessions last week “deprived the Filipino People of exercising, through their duly-elected Representatives, their right to participate in crafting a national budget that would best serve the country.”
