The bill establishing the P275 billion Maharlika Wealth Fund (MWF) is being fast-tracked by Congress. The bill was drafted by several legislators, including President Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, a successor to the president, Yedda Romualdez, a representative of the Tingog Party List, and deputy majority leader Sandro Marcos, the president’s son.

Under the proposed plan, the Maharlika fund would pool P275 billion from banks and government pension funds in order to finance costly national development initiatives and other assets. It has been criticized by senators, representatives and economists for having lax management controls and possibly putting retirees at risk.

Taking to Facebook, Miss Q&A contestant Marigona Dragusha shared her reaction to the controversial Maharlika Wealth Fund. She also noted how the public paid attention to the Vhong Navarro case and not to national issues, including Vice President Sara Duterte’s confidential P500M funds.

“Sobrang dami mong time mag-comment sa case ni Vhong Navarro but wala kang comment sa 500M Confidential Funds ni Sara Duterte at 250B Maharlika Funds na maaring kunin sa pension ng mga Magulang mo. Do you really have to give chances sa mga taong paulit-ulit tayong ginagago harap-harapan? Noooo!!!” she wrote.

“The Navarro case will not affect you directly. But, the OVP budget has direct implications on you because you are a taxpayer. Isama can’t do anything with SSS, GSIS contributions may ultimately be a source of funding for Maharlika Funds, unless they are managed and maintained. Make sense?” she added.
