Roque, who supported Binay’s presidential bid in the last elections, said that Binay was effective in his job as adviser on OFW affairs.
Binay has remained silent after Duterte assumed power, even he traded barbs with President Duterte during the 2016 campaign
Roque and ACTS OFW party-list Rep. John Bertiz are also batting for the creation of a separate government department that will handle the concerns of the OFWs.
They said that the Department of Foreign Affairs is not effective in handling and meeting the needs of OFWs because of the huge number of overseas Filipinos that needs assistance.
Lawmakers have been urging President Duterte to seek executive clemency for Jennifer Aresgado Dalquez, an overseas Filipino worker facing execution in the United Arab Emirates.
Binay was the Adviser of OFW Affairs during the last administration before he resigned and decided to join the presidential race.
Since October 2010, when Binay began serving as OFW-concerns adviser, he had helped in the repatriation of thousands of OFWs and helped prevent several OFWs from execution, though he was not always successful in the matter.
