Title: Constituent Assembly
Post by: MIKELIGALIG.com on December 04, 2017, 11:08:30 AM
STATEMENT BY THE
HONORABLE ROGER “OGING” MERCADO
Southern Leyte, Lone District
Chair, Committee on Constitutional Amendments
Deputy Majority Leader
‎0917-865-2286
HOUSE CHARTER CHANGE COMMITTEE READY WITH RESOLUTION ON CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY

I am confident House Concurrent Resolution No. 9 can be expedited and be ready by or before January 2018. HCR No. 9 already has a committee report that consolidated several measures. The House is therefore able to back up Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez when he meets Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel, III.

The House Committee on Constitutional Amendments, which I chair, has a draft federal constitution due for submission this December to the House Committee on Rules chaired by Majority Leader Rodolfo “Rudy” Fariñas, Sr.

The draft charter builds upon the proposal of the PDP-Laban Federalism Institute. It is consistent with the ideas of President Rodrigo Duterte on what the new charter ought to have and contains solutions to the country's economic problems, especially poverty, the peace and order situation, and the fight against illegal drugs.

We have support from our colleagues in the House to get their approval on HCR No. 9 in the near-term and on the proposed amendments when Congress is convened as a constituent assembly. (END)
