On Reported Plans to Postpone the May 2019 Polls via ‘People’s Initiative’

Nothing escapes the Senate’s participation. Thus, aside from Sec. 1 under Art XVII which provides for a Constituent Assembly and Constitutional Convention, Sec. 2, particularly Paragraph 2, which allows the direct participation of the people, shall likewise need the Senate to implement the same.

Hence, and I quote to preclude any misinterpretation:

SECTION 2. Amendments to this Constitution may likewise be directly proposed by the people through initiative upon a petition of at least twelve per centum of the total number of registered voters, of which every legislative district must be represented by at least three per centum of the registered voters therein. No amendment under this section shall be authorized within five years following the ratification of this Constitution nor oftener than once every five years thereafter.Β The Congress shall provide for the implementation of the exercise of this right.

Nothing could be clearer.

It goes without saying, majority of the senators, even those running for re-election, will fight tooth and nail any attempt to cancel the 2019 midterm elections simply because it is wrong and self-serving.

Read: Senate Bill 1869, An Act Providing for the Rank Classification in the PNP

Senate Bill 1869, which amends Section 28 of RA 6975, aims to eliminate public confusion on PNP terminologies and to bring the police force closer to the populace.

Furthermore, this bill seeks to promote interoperability between police officers and equivalent military officers in the field, which in turn could enhance joint PNP-AFP internal security operations, counter-terrorism operation, and operations against threats to national security.
