House not sure on Chacha anymore – Belmonte


President Benigno Aquino III’s sudden change of mind and openness to constitutional amendments has caused Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr., the major proponent of constitutional change in the House of Representatives, to suddenly turn cold and freeze as the controversial issue rages. Manila Standard Today

Speaker Sonny Belmonte, who is spearheading the move to amend the Constitution in a bid to push for economic reforms, is now in a quandary as to whether he and the House leadership would support Cha-Cha with the way President Aquino wants it amended. But Belmonte said his position on the issue would depend after his talks with the President. “I have no position without first discussing it with the President,” he said. Manila Standard Today
