House Speaker Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez has opened up on the issue behind the controversial election of the new House minority floor leader.

Speaking on ANC's #NoFilter, Alvarez explained the dynamics behind the election, following the initial confusion on who the minority floor leader should be.

"Based on the rules, on the present rules of the House, it's Danny Suarez," he said.

Suarez was elected House minority leader last month, amid claims that the PDP Laban-led majority rigged the race to ensure a meek minority bloc.
