Now that former House Speaker Jose de Venecia is with the administration’s fold, so should his son, Pangasinan 4th district Rep. Christopher “Toff” de Venecia.
According to reports, the younger De Venecia will be among the group of Liberal Party (LP) solons that will transfer to ruling party PDP-Laban on Wednesday afternoon (May 10).
The reports came out a day after ex-Speaker De Venecia was appointed to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) as Special Envoy for Inter-Cultural Dialogue.
House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, PDP-Laban secretary-general, will lead the oath taking of the new party members at 3 p.m.
President Rodrigo Duterte is PDP-Laban chairman.
Rep. De Venecia sits as vice chairman of the Committees on Food Security and North Luzon Growth Quadrangle.
