Constitutional reform a must to keep economic momentum, say AdCom

Iloilo City (5 October) -- Sigaw ng Bayan spokesperson Atty. Raul Lambino said that Constitutional Reforms remain an important factor in the country's quest to further boost economic growth, as his group challenged those opposing Cha-cha to prove that the signature campaign ULAP and Sigaw ng Bayan conducted was rigged.

Lambino also said that ULAP and Sigaw are ready to face the group led by One Voice, questioning the authenticity and veracity of the signatures gathered for the People's Initiative.

He added that One voice should be ready to withdraw their opposition to Charter change and support People's Initiative once they fail to prove their sweeping charges against the signature campaign.

He stood by the fact that the local election officials had certified as valid and authentic a total of 6,327,952 signatories in all of the country's 213 legislative districts, which represent almost 15 percent of the total voting population, or beyond the 12 percent requirement mandated under the Constitution.

Lmmbino also said that they have complied with the twin requirements of gathering the support of 12 percent of the total voting population and with each of the 213 legislative districts represented by at least 3 percent of its registered voters.

Meanwhile, both he and Speaker Jose de Venecia opined that changing the Constitution will benefit the country and prevent adverse effects of intermittent political showdowns and non-stop politicking of the opposition. (PIA 6) [top]
