MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Women’s Partylist Gabriela is taking the high road in opposition to the government’s plan to phase out jeepneys and upgrade them to modernized public utility vehicles. In exchange, it is willing to legislate its own demise.
In a hastily-called press conference Gabriela Representative Arlene Brosas asked her colleagues in Congress to phase out the partlist system, not the jeepneys.
Brosas told The Adobo Chronicles that she will file a bill to abolish the partylist system on Friday.
What a heroic compromise for Gabriela? Mabuhay to all jeepney drivers!
