The City Council will elect its new leaders today after the sudden resignation Wednesday night of my partner Boni Militar as Floor Leader.
In a caucus yesterday, we decided to replace him with Assistant Floor Leader Danny Dayanghirang of the Second District.
The Floor Leader sets the council agenda and steers the debates on the floor.
Councilor Myrna Dalodo-Ortiz, No. 1 Councilor in the Third District, will assume as the new Assistant Floor Leader.
Vice Mayor Sara Duterte will be attending to an important function this morning and Speaekr Protempore Councilor Mabel Sunga Acosta is on her way to Manila. So, I was asked to temporarily preside this morning’s session.
