Malacañang has assured that it will do everything possible for President Rodrigo Duterte to investigate and sign the 2021 national budget submitted.
It is said that Malacañang has not yet received the enrolled copy of the General Appropriations Bill (GAB) ratified by Congress last night.
Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque said the Office of the President (OP) will expedite the review of the 2021 national budget so that President Duterte can sign it before the end of the year.
According to Sec. Roque, the Office of the Executive Secretary (OES) will carefully review the provisions of the bill to ensure that no illegal infringement is made.
If President Duterte’s line veto is needed, he will do it.
