Lower House prefers Con-ass mode of Chacha

By Aurora J. Casimpan

Tacloban City (24 November) -- The Supreme Court has ruled with finality against charter change but the movers of change are not about to just sit back and forget the plan. With the setback comes a determination to push cha-cha.

The belief that the country's development rests on cha-cha all the move gives the movers the energy and zealousness to renew the struggle to succeed. The people's upliftment are at the stake hence the removal of all stumbling blocks against cha-cha needs to be undertaken.

House Speaker Jose de Venecia has taken the cudgels for pushing cha-cha ot through another people's initiative but through a Constituent Assembly. According to him, the lower house has already obtained a total 195 signatures of lawmakers which is enoug requirement to convene a Constituent Assembly. He said further that signatories obtained include some senators and from the opposition.

The plan to push for cha-cha is not confined to lawmakers from the House of Representatives but from an alliance of local and national leaders and supported by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Considering that the current movers represents the people who have voiced for cha-cha underscore the importance for its realization.

The Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines through its President Erico Aumentado is supportive of the lower house initiative saying that their group prefer the ConAss mode of charter change because of financial considerations for the country. The ConCOn mode being pushed by some opposition senators is an expensive way of amending the Constitution. (PIA-8) [top]
