Like them, the Canadian Political Scientist Amir Assadollahi questions the way the hearing was conducted by the senate chair Sen. Grace Poe.

In a Facebook post, he asked if the said senator has in mind the 'best interest of the Philippines'. The political scientist also asked as to what her true intentions are.

'Does Senator Grace Poe really have the best interest of the Philippines in mind? What is her true intentions?'

According to Assadollahi, he watched the senate hearing on fake news and said he has a problem with the way it was conducted and how 'partial and biased' the senator was in some areas.

'I watched the senate hearing and I really have problem withe the way she conducted the hearing and how partial and biased she was on many things!'

However, the latter did notice how calm the senate chair was but for Assadollahi, she was 'not following the formal rules of conducting meetings on many occasions, and certainly she was very quick to give points to what benefited her political camp and quick enough to dismiss and attack those who did not fall under her interests!'

The expert also said that to him, it was a joke and such a waste of time and money of the tax payers.

Due to what took place, Assadollahi said maybe it's time to 'dismantle the senate and speed up' the federalism that does not include the 'old senate style' which for him was 'nonsense clown work'.

'If you can’t be impartial and can’t serve the society, maybe it is time to dismantle the senate and speed up creating the federalism system without the old senate style of nonsense clown work.'

Assadollahi said he was extremely disappointed with how Sen. Grace Poe handled such a thing.

Does Senator Grace Poe really have the best interest of the Philippines in mind? What is her true intentions? I watched the senate hearing and I really have problem withe the way she conducted the hearing and how partial and biased she was on many things! She was calm to chair the senate hearing, but was not following the formal rules of conducting meetings on many occasions, and certainly she was very quick to give points to what benefited her political camp and quick enough to dismiss and attack those who did not fall under her interests! Indeed it was very interesting to observe her on how partial she was when conducting that hearing. To me that was a joke and a waste of senate time and tax payers’ money! What is wrong with the senate? You supposed to fix things, not add to problems! If you can’t be impartial and can’t serve the society, maybe it is time to dismantle the senate and speed up creating the federalism system without the old senate style of nonsense clown work. I am just an observer and am extremely disappointed with Senator Grace Poe for the way she conducted the senate - it was very partial and was conducted unprofessionally.
