Anakalusugan Party-list Rep. Mike Defensor lost another post at the House of Representatives, this time as vice-chairperson of the Committee on Legislative Franchises.

He was replaced by Zamboanga Sibugay 1st District Rep. Wilter Palma II.

Defensor, a known ally of former House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, was booted out last December as Committee on Public Accounts chairperson.

The Committee on Legislative Franchises discusses matters relating to the grant, amendment, extension, or revocation of franchises.

Meanwhile, Palma was replaced as Deputy Majority Leader by Iloilo 3rd District Rep. Lorenz Defensor.

Quezon City 1st district Rep. Anthony Peter Crisologo was also elected as vice-chairperson of the Committee on Games and Amusement.
