MANILA — Senate Minority Leader Koko Pimentel said that the “periodic break” of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. should have been announced.

This is after Malacañang confirmed Marcos’ “productive” visit to Singapore where he also met with Singaporean Prime Minister for Manpower Tan See Ling while also attending the F1 Grand Prix race.

“Ang masasabi ko na lang siguro ay tao naman tayong lahat. Even ang US (United States) president, sometimes meron po siyang mga break. Ganyan na lang din po ang attitude natin sa ating mga leaders: Bigyan natin ng mga periodic break,” Pimentel said.

“Pero sana — kung United States ’yung ating pina-pattern, ina-announce nila du’n — i-announce sana, hindi ‘yung nalaman na lang natin tapos nagtatanong tayo pwede niyo bang i-confirm at saka i-confirm,” he added.

For Pimentel, the President may have breaks especially since he will be working for six years.

“Kasi kapag presidente ka na, anim na taon kang presidente, 24 hours a day ka, pwede ka namang magpahinga. Ipaalam lang sa taumbayan kung ano ‘yung mga plano mo, ng ating presidente, kung kanino charge.” (ai/mtvn)
