Solon denies getting
P20M for ConAss votes
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Rep. Genaro Alvarez (Neg. Occ., 6th District) yesterday denied that the congressmen who voted to convene congress into a constituent assembly received P20 million each.
They voted for House Resolution 1109 because they believe economic reforms are needed for the good of the country, but have committed not to extend the terms of office of any incumbent official, including the president, he said.
Alvarez said he did not get P20 million for his vote, what he got for the sixth district of Negros Occidental was a P420 million in infrastructure stimulus projects from January to June for much-needed roads.
