Lazatin dared to explain Congress absences

ANGELES CITY–Women’s groups in this city joined the growing clamor of residents to First District Representative Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin to explai
his reported continuous failure to attend congressional sessions in Quezon City.
Women’s groups stated that it is the duty of the 78-year old congressman to attend to duties in Congress and report the same to his constituents.
“Tarzan must explain his absences to the people who voted for him as representative of the first congressional district of Pampanga. The people expected him to perform well but it seems that Tarzan is consistently under bad weather lately, thus, could not really attend to his day-to-day functions as congressman,” Edna Gutierrez of the Samahan ng Kababaihan ng Lourdes North West (SKLNW), said.
“Congressman paki-explain po sa amin kung bakit lagi po kayo nag aabsent sa House of Representatives. Kami pong mamamayan dito sa Unang Distrito ng Pampanga ay nag eexpect na magampanan mo ang katungkulan mo bilang kongresista. Sayang naman ang boto naming kung hindi mo tinatrabaho ang katungkulan mo,” Gutierrez added.
Per records from the House of Representatives, Lazatin was absent in 17 session days in 2011. From July to November 2012, he was recorded as “present” in only 2 session days but “did not respond to the calling of the roll.”
“Is he sick? Is this the reason why he has failed to attend the sessions of the House of Representatives?” Maritess Canlas of the Barangay Recto Samahang Kababaihan (BRSK), asked.
“Tarzan Lazatin must reveal his true physical condition and health situation. He owes that to the electorate of Angeles City. Baka naman kailangan na niyang mamahinga at tumulong na lang sa krusada ni Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan tungo sa ikauunlad ng Ciudad ng Angeles,” Canlas added.
“Tarzan has failed to attend the sessions of Congress. That is the sad reality. Why? Only Tarzan Lazatin knows for now, and perhaps some people very close to him. But still we hope that this is not due to a serious ailment. We hope that he is well. However, it is still our belief that Tarzan Lazatin, now at the age of 78, must retire from politics. We hope he will be our first local statesman in the interest of unity and common good, and for the development and progress of our beloved city. If Tarzan could do this, then history will forever be on his side,” Margie Manarang, from the Women’s Assocition of Cutcut (WAC), said.
“Pakiusap namin na sana po ay magbigay-daan na si Lazatin sa mga mas nakababatang pulitiko. Gawin sana niya ang makasaysayang pagbibigay-daan na ito at maging kauna-unahang pulitiko na nagretiro para sa pagkakaisa,” Manarang added.
Congressman Lazatin has earlier showed that his health is stable by attending various activities in the city and his district. ●–Charlene A. Cayabyab
