Danilo Suarez: Charter Change is ‘timely’

Dec 9, 2018 @ 21:49

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez said the issue of Charter Change is “timely.”

The Quezon politiko said the “1987 Constitution was written and passed under conditions that undermine the possibility of permanence.”

“The nation was in violent and traumatic transition. But now, 2018, the transition is over. The conditions prevailing more than 30 years ago no longer exist,” Suarez explained.

He said it’s high time to revisit if the 1987 Constitution’s provisions are still relevant today.

“We should table for debate the economic provisions, allowing foreign participation in nationalized industries, and if our nation will progress under this present form of government,” Suarez said.

“We should ask, does our present form of government, and how it is run, achieve the goals of the Local Government Code?” he added.
