It has been a long tug-of-war between Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano and Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco for the speakership.

But all is well that ends well, at least in the case of Velasco and his camp, when President Rodrigo Duterte stepped into the speakership row Tuesday night that led Cayetano to finally yield the post he’s been trying to keep for himself until 2022.

Velasco, who has been composed all these days while in the middle of the power struggle, was finally made the new Speaker of the House.
