Scandals and Controversies
Allan Velasco was defeated in his congressional bid in 2013 by Regina Ongsiako Reyes. He filed an election protest on the ground that his opponent was an American Citizen and got a favorable decision from the COMELEC and also from the Supreme Court. Initially, Congress under Speaker Feliciano Belmonte refused to honor the Supreme Court Decision but on February 1, 2016, the House of Representatives allowed him to assume office.
