BUZZ: Just a waste of time

18

Filomeno S. Sta. Ana III: All this talk about extending PNoy’s term by another 6 years is garbage. I’d rather focus on and sustain the debate regarding the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP). Parenthetically, on DAP, our position is definite – it is a tool for efficiency and good governance, it is economically sound, and it has legal legs, only to be struck down by a rigid yet populist Supreme Court.  Rappler

Filomeno S. Sta. Ana III: The hullaballoo about amending the Constitution to re-elect PNoy is a waste of time. It is counterproductive. It will result in the loss of the momentum for reforms and the diminution of PNoy’s political capital. Similarly, it is splitting the ranks within the administration, resulting in a weakened presidency. Rappler

Filomeno S. Sta. Ana III: Playing with the Constitution for a self-serving purpose, despite a seemingly noble end, is dangerous. It will tear apart his coalition. That means putting the unfinished reform agenda on the back burner. That means putting at risk the passage of the Bangsa Moro entity, freedom of information, rationalization of fiscal incentives, mineral taxation, land use, competition framework, modernization of the Bureau of Customs, etc – precisely the measures that will make P-Noy’s legacy endure.
