Con-Ass or Con-Con? Pacquiao: Bahala na si Lord!
Senator Manny Pacquiao leaves the fate of the country and the push for Charter change “to God.”
He made the remark when asked to comment on his preferred mode to amend the Constitution in order to shift to federal form of government.
The proponents of federalism were pushing for Constituent Assembly (Con-Ass) while most of the senators and other legal luminaries pressed for Constitutional Convention (Con-Con) to pursue Charter change (Cha-cha).
“Either way Con-Ass or Con-Con. Basta para sa kapakanan ng sambayanang Pilipino iyon ang tinitingnan ko palagi,” Pacquiao said in a text message on Friday.
“Sana umasenso na ang bansa natin. Grabe talaga ang corruption dito sa bansa natin. Panginoon na ang bahala sa lahat,” the Pambansang Kamao said.
Sen. Ping Lacson already filed Resolution No. 580 asking fellow senators to convene into a Con-Ass to amend or revise the 1987 Constitution.
The House of Representatives (HoR) just recently adopted Resolution No. 9 which seeks both houses of Congress to convene into a Con-Ass to introduce amendments to the Charter.
