Duterte’s federalism agenda has Romualdez's support

Federalism form of government was one of the promises that was given by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte  during the campaign when he was still running for President in 2016.
Now he is already at the middle of his term as President his allies from the House of Representatives are already making noise so much so that the idea of the Philippines having a Federal form of government will not just remain as a dream for mindanaoan president.

Romuladez who is one of the personalities who wants to be the next Speaker of the House said that the push for Charter change (Cha-cha) should be in the list of priorities of national leaders as this would complement the Duterte administration’s initiatives to accelerate economic growth.

“We will keep our dedication, commitment, passion and the flame burning in pursuing federalism until we reap the real benefits of genuine constitutional reforms for our children and the succeeding generations,” said Romualdez.

“I urge my colleagues and the Filipino people to stand behind President Duterte and help push a federal Constitution to create opportunities and for strong economic growth to be also felt by ordinary people,” said Romualdez

“The federalism advocacy of President Duterte is a golden opportunity to unlock the doors of peace, progress, and prosperity of the country and the people,” he added.
