Focus on rising prices, unsolved killings instead of Cha Cha -Robredo


Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo thinks it not appropriate to talk about amending the 1987 Constitution when the nation is faced with so many problems, she cites the spate of killings of local executives, priests, those alleged victims of the government’s crackdown on illegal drugz, and the increase of prices of primary commodities.

"Mula sa sunod-sunod na patayan, hanggang sa patuloy na pagtaas ng presyo ng bilihin, ang pinakamahalagang usapin para sa mga Pilipino ay kung paano masosolusyonan ng kasalukuyang administrasyon ang mga problemang ito," Robredo said in a statement.

Robredo added that amending the current Constitution would affect every Filipino amd should not be done in haste.

"Ang usaping simbigat nito ay hindi dapat minamadali at ginagawang tungkol lamang sa mga kasalukuyang nasa poder ng kapangyarihan," the Vice President said.

"Kung pilitin ito nang hindi isinasalang sa akmang pag-aaral at konsultasyon, hindi ba't isinusugal natin ang kinabukasan ng ating bayan? Hindi ito dapat ginagawa sa paraang sinasakripisyo na natin ang pagtugon sa matitimbang na isyung kinahaharap ng pamilyang Pilipino," she said.

Robredo reiterates that the  ordinary Filipinos want their leaders to find answers and solutions to basic problems such as low wages and the seemingly non-stop rising of prices of goods. Inflation just reached 5.2% in June which is much higher last May - 4.6%.

The consultative committee formed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte which is tasked to provide amendments to the 1987 Constitution has approved the draft charter proposing a federal system of government, and any day now they will submit such draft to Malacañang.
