PGMA bows to democracy, rule of law

Manila (26 October) -- Describing the recent High Court decision on the People's Initiative petition, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has bowed to the rule of democracy and the rule of law - as a sign of respect - and called upon the people to join hands in supporting the close decision of the Supreme Court.

"This is democracy in action and we must uphold it."

So said the Chief Executive as she extolled those who fought for the People's Initiative for their patriotism, perseverance and courage.

"The great idea of Charter reform lives on and we must keep the fire burning. This is about creating a modern, working Philippines, to leave behind the degenerated system that is holding the nation back and keeping it too poor and divided," President Arroyo explained.

She also reiterated the government's vision of having the Philippines join the ranks of first world nations by 2020 and a modern, more cohesive and more accountable political structure is key to achieving the goal. Hence, the Palace support for charter reform.

Meanwhile, Malacaņang is leaving the issue now to concerned institutions as to how to keep the dreams of the people ascendant and heed the imperatives of change. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
