Ralph Recto: Federalism is dead
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said the Duterte administration’s push to shift to federalism is “dead.”
The Batangas politiko made the remark after Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo filed a draft federalism charter earlier this week.
Recto explained that Congress does not have enough time to discuss Arroyo’s proposal.
“Why do you think so much of that? I don’t think anything will happen to that,” he said.
“Wala na, patay na ‘yung federalism na yan, patay na yung cha-cha. Next Congress na pag-usapan yan. Wala na ‘yan, futile,” Recto added.
