Rep. Erwin Tulfo of ACT-CIS party-list group has vowed to be an active and working member of the House of Representatives.
Tulfo, former Social Welfare Secretary on Tuesday night took his oath of office as the third nominee of ACT-CIS party-list group.
If given the chance, Tulfo said that he would want to be part of the House committee on good governance and public accountability “to perform a check and balance on government agencies.”
“Those government agencies that have long queues, and those that have foul-mannered employees, I want to check on that,” Tulfo said.
The committee currently chaired by San Jose del Monte City Rep. Rida Robes covers “all matters directly and principally relating to malfeasance, misfeasance and nonfeasance in office committed by officers and employees of the government and its political subdivisions and instrumentalities inclusive of investigations of any matter of public interest on its own initiative or upon order of the House.”
Tulfo, a former broadcast journalist, added that he wants to look into “private entities that impose exorbitant fees on Filipinos.”
Rep. Jocelyn Tulfo and Edvic Yap are the other two nominees of Tulfo’s party-list group.
