Sa nakaraang pagdinig, iginiit ng Punong Bayang ng Porac na si Mayor Capil na wala siyang malawak na kaalaman tungkol sa dispute sa lupa kung saan itinatayo ang Pogo Hub sa PORAC. Gayunpaman, lumitaw na ang lupa sa usaping ito ay dapat sanang ipinamahagi sa mga magsasaka sa ilalim ng Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP). Kuwento ng magsasakang si Manuel Galang, na kinakatawan ang mga magsasaka ng Barangay Santa Cruz, Porac, ay nagbahagi ng kanilang karanasan. Noong 2003, kinuha ng mga magsasaka ang lupa, tinulungan ni Atty. Carlos na i-facilitate ang kanilang mga reklamo sa pamamagitan ng Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR). Sa kasamaang-palad, si Atty. Carlos ay binaril noong Enero 2020, na nagdulot ng takot sa mga magsasaka, lalo na't biglaang dumami umano ang presensya ng mga security sa lupang kanilang sinasaka.

Possible Reasons why Duterte won't a

Philippine Senate Committee Orders Arrest of Suspended Mayor Alice Guo Amid Controversy Senate Issues Arrest Order for Mayor Alice Guo The Philippine Senate Committee has ordered the arrest of suspended Bamban Mayor Alice Guo following her continued absence from hearings concerning her alleged connections to illegal Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs).  Despite being issued a subpoena, Guo failed to appear at the inquiry led by Senator Risa Hontiveros.

Ang Pagiging DepEd Secretary ni Senador Sonny Angara Sa pinakahuling Presscon ni Senator Nancy Binay ay naging paksa si Senador Sonny Angara bilang bagong Kalihim ng DepEd. Ayon sa kapwa senador, partikular na kay Senador Nancy, siya ang pinakamainam na kandidato para sa posisyong ito dahil naging bahagi na siya ng EDCOM, na kasalukuyang tumatalakay sa mga problema at solusyon sa edukasyon. Ipinunto rin na walang magiging learning curve para kay Sen. Angara bilang DepEd Secretary dahil sa kanyang malawak na kaalaman at karanasan sa larangan ng edukasyon. Bagaman malungkot na aalis si Sen. Sonny mula sa Senado, partikular na't naging kasabayan niya ito mula noong 2013, ang kanyang mga kakayahan at karanasan ay higit na kailangan ng sektor ng edukasyon sa bansa.
