first_imgAlbay to send off disaster response team to Batangas “In the course of our discussion with the sports committee (at the House of Representatives), there’s great hope that they will allocate money for the hosting and even the PSI (Philippine Sports Institute) budget,’’ said Ramirez.Cojuangco and Ramirez also functioned in their current positions during the 2005 Manila SEA Games where the Philippines captured its first overall title.“We’ve seen the effects of the 2005 hosting and this is how important it is for our country,’’ said Cojuangco. “I hope this will add more impetus for everyone to contribute to this effort, because this isnot for Peping or Secretary Cayetano or Butch Ramirez. This is for the country.’’Cayetano will arrange a meeting with Cojuangco over the next few days and attend the turnover ceremonies during the closing rites of the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games on Aug. 30.“It’s more of putting a system so everybody will have duties appealable to us. The three of us (with Cojuangco and Ramirez) have agreed to do it the Asean way, which is by consensus,’’ said Cayetano.The Philippine hosting was initially shelved after the government explained that it would just focus on the rehabilitation of war-torn Marawi City.Ramirez said talks were revived to save the hosting early this week through the efforts of Presidential Assistant Christopher Lawrence Go, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea and Cayetano.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ai-Ai delas Alas on Jiro Manio: ‘Sana pinahalagahan niya ang naitulong ko’ View comments Teen gunned down in Masbate Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11SEA GAMES 2019: PH’s Nesthy Petecio boxing featherweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)08:07Athletes treated to a spectacle as SEA Games 2019 officially ends06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball05:21Drama in karate: Tsukii ‘very sad’ over coach’s bullying, cold shoulder03:24PH’s James Palicte boxing light welterweight final (HIGHLIGHTS) READ: PSC gives 2019 SEA Games hosting green light “The athletes are the ones who will compete and it will be difficult if someone else will decide for them,’’ said Cayetano during the formal announcement of the country’s SEAG hosting at the Marriott Hotel in Paranaque City.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?
