President Duterte went on a major offensive against Senator Richard Gordon and the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee during his Talk to the People on Monday night, September 27, 2021.

Meanwhile, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) numbers in the country continued to taper down with 18,449 new cases and 93 deaths, and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos expressed satisfaction that the Alert Level 4 being implemented in the metropolis was producing the desired results.

And a major issue that could be resolved this week is whether or not voters’ registration could still be extended as the House approved a bill that would mandate a 30-day extension from the September 30-deadline.

These are among the top stories this Tuesday morning, September 28, 2021, which could be another busy day in the realm of politics, elections, and COVID-19 response.
