Shame! Pangilinan blasts lawmakers clinging to power via Charter change


Walang kahihiyan.

Senator Francis Pangilinan has slammed some members of the House of Representatives for callous attempts to change the Constitution to prolong their stay in power while people were reeling from high prices of basic goods.

“While the poor are busy trying to eke out a living for their everyday meals and fare, lawmakers are toying with our Constitution and how to cling to power. Shame,” he tweeted.

Pangilinan issued the comment after the House proposed the lifting of term limits for lawmakers in the draft federal Constitution. The lawmakers may reportedly have four-year term and could seek re-election under the proposed Charter.
