QUICK

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez sees quick amendments to the 1987 Constitution.

Speaking to ANC Headstart, Alvarez allayed concerns about the progress of charter change which is a campaign promise of the President.

Alvarez reiterated that  the House already has a committee on charter change, while the ruling party has also constituted a commission for the same purpose.

“ Sa House, mayroon kami, mayroon kami. Ang  PDP as a party, mayroon din kaming kinomission na grupo, mostly from the University of the Philippines para pag-aralan nga yung bagong sistema.”

Alvarez says preparation work is now being done even before a Constituent Assembly is conveneed. So mabilis lang talaga ito, dahil mayroon na talagang nagtatrabaho bago pa man lahat na na-convene yung Congress into a Constituent Assembly.”
