Philippine Daily Inquirer - - NEWS - —VINCE F. NONATO

Deputy Speaker Ra­neo Abu has called on the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives to sum­mon In­te­rior Un­der­sec­re­tary Martin Diño for claim­ing that a third of its 292 mem­bers were en­gaged in vote buy­ing dur­ing the re­cent barangay elec­tions.

In a priv­i­lege speech late Wed­nes­day, Abu dared Diño to name names and prove his al­le­ga­tions, say­ing he had been ma­lign­ing the cham­ber to score po­lit­i­cal points.

“I urge this cham­ber to sum­mon Un­der­sec­re­tary Diño through the ap­pro­pri­ate com­mit­tee,” Abu said.

He also called on In­te­rior Sec­re­tary Ed­uardo Año to di­rect Diño to “re­lease the names” of the 100 con­gress­men.
