Senate President Franklin Drilon is seeking a review of the 1987 Constitution through a Constitutional Convention.
The Senate President proposed that no member of Congress at the time of the adoption of the resolution, as well as those who filed a certificate of candidacy for the recently concluded May 9 general elections, shall be allowed to become a delegate to the convention. Those seeking to become a delegate to the convention “shall represent or allow himself to be represented as being a candidate of any political party or any other organization.” The President, Vice President, members of Congress and heads of departments are also not allowed to intervene in the nomination of any candidate. According to the resolution, the Convention shall meet on the first working day of September next year.
Article XVII, Section 3 of the Constitution provides that Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of all its members, call for a Constitutional Convention to propose amendments to, or a revision of, the Constitution. In an earlier interview, Drilon said that there is an “emerging consensus” among senators to review the Constitution.

BEIJING, China — Three days of heavy rain in southern China have left 50 people dead and another 12 missing and destroyed thousands of homes, authorities said Sunday, as areas along the Yangtze River braced for more floods. Torrential rains caused the deaths of 27 people and left a further 12 missing since Thursday in central Hubei, the provincial civil affairs department said. In mountainous Guizhou province in the southwest, the bodies of 23 people were found after a landslide buried a village Friday, Dafang county government said. Rainstorms soak the southern part of China every year during the summer monsoons, but this rainy season has been particularly wet. State television on Saturday showed people using boats to navigate flooded streets in eastern Anhui province. Vice Premier Wang Yang warned last month that there was a high possibility of floods in the Yangtze River and Huai River basins this year, which equate to a large swath of China’s southern, central and eastern areas. A similar El Nino effect was linked to China’s worst floods in recent history, when 4,150 people died in 1998, most along the Yangtze.
The Yangtze River flood control headquarters has ordered local authorities to remain on high alert.
Anticrime advocate Dante Jimenez (left) challenged Senator Leila de Lima to quit to become a lawyer of former-President Benigno Aquino III. Volunteers against Crime and Corruption (VACC) chair Dante Jimenez challenged the senator to step down to become a defense lawyer for Aquino.
VACC is asking the Office of the Ombudsman to indict Aquino for reckless imprudence resulting in homicide for his alleged role in the “Oplan Exodus” operation, where 44 members of the police Special Action Force (SAF) were killed. A similar complaint was filed against dismissed police chief Alan Purisima and sacked SAF director and defeated senatorial candidate Getulio Napenas. But De Lima branded the charge as “absurd,” saying that it would not even pass the preliminary investigation. A Lebanese army soldier from the special forces unit stands on a APC during a patrol in front a church in Qaa, a predominantly Lebanese Christian village near the Syrian border were suicide bombers blow themselves among civilians on Monday, eastern Lebanon, Tuesday, June 28, 2016.
BEIRUT, Lebanon — The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah says it has killed the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) military commander for the Qaa border area in Lebanon, where a series of suicide bombings and other attacks killed five people earlier this week.
Hezbollah’s media outlet Al-Manar said the group, which shares security responsibilities with the Lebanese army in areas along the eastern border with Syria, killed a commander known as Abu Khatab in a rocket attack. Hezbollah, which also participates in Lebanon’s government, has blamed the Qaa attacks on IS. Violence from neighboring Syria’s civil war has spilled across the border in the past. NAGA CITY, Philippines — Armed with search warrants, operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) swooped down on a known drug-plagued community along Naga River on Saturday and arrested 12 persons for violating the anti-illegal drugs law, police said Sunday. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton visits a restaurant, Monday, June 6, 2016, in Watts, California.
WASHINGTON, United States — The FBI interviewed Hillary Clinton on Saturday about her use of personal email while serving as secretary of state, an issue that has dogged her campaign to become America’s first female president.
An aide said the interview at FBI headquarters in Washington lasted about 3.5 hours, following previous such interviews with Clinton aides, including close confidante Huma Abedin. It comes about three weeks before the Democratic National Convention is set to crown Clinton as the party’s official White House nominee. The interview signals that the FBI’s protracted criminal investigation could be entering its final phase, with a long-awaited decision nearing.
Clinton, aiming to become the nation’s first female commander-in-chief, has apologized for exclusively using a private email account and her own server during her time as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. Opponents argue that this breached rules about protecting classified documents from cyber attack and may have amounted to a crime. Her use of private email for official correspondence first came to light in 2015 during Republican-led congressional investigations into her handling of a militant attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton turned over some 30,000 emails to State Department officials after she stepped down from the job three years ago.
But she also said she deleted more than 30,000 other emails that were of a personal nature and not related to her work as secretary of state.
A starkly critical report by the State Department’s inspector general found she had not sought permission to conduct official business on her personal account.
The FBI interview came amid revelations that US Attorney General Loretta Lynch held an impromptu meeting with Clinton’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, at the airport in Phoenix, Arizona this week. On Friday, Lynch vowed to respect the decisions of the FBI and prosecutors on whether to charge Hillary Clinton. But Lynch insisted that she, as a political appointee, will not overrule investigators or otherwise interfere in the legal process regarding the probe, and that the integrity of the Justice Department will be upheld. MADRID, Spain — A tiger attacked and killed a zookeeper in its cage at a Spanish animal park Saturday, the local Red Cross service said. Zoo staff put the animal to sleep with sedative darts after which the emergency workers were able to get in and pronounce the woman dead. Matt Schlentz poses with his Rainbow-Gadsen Flag and AR-15 in his backyard in Salt Lake City, Wednesday, June 16.
SALT LAKE CITY, United States — Memberships have more than doubled in a national LGBT pro-gun rights organization since a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 49 people.
Pink Pistols Utah chapter President Matt Schlentz said Pink Pistols membership has grown from 1,500 to 4,000 since Omar Mateen’s June 12 rampage, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
Schlentz owns semi-automatic rifles similar to the Sig Sauer MCX that Mateen used, and he said he gets mixed reactions from people who learn he’s a gun rights advocate. Pink Pistols organized in 2000 in response to a series of violent incidents like the murder in Wyoming of gay college student Matthew Shepard. Mexico City’s attorney general has opened an investigation into the attack on Ramirez, the frontman of Banda MS.
In December 2015 the Mexican singer Nain Alvarez was shot dead in the Sinaloa capital Culiacan after releasing a song about drug kingpins. In this image made from video provided by ATN News, Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina makes a nationally televised speech regarding the militant hostage-taking at a restaurant popular with foreigners in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Saturday, July 2, 2016. DHAKA, Bangladesh — Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina pleaded with Islamist extremists to stop killing in the name of religion Saturday after 20 hostages were killed in a siege at a Dhaka restaurant.
The prime minister, whose government has been unable to stop a growing wave of attacks on foreigners and religious minorities, urged a nationwide effort to combat extremism. Filipinos value the idea that their children grow up healthy and tall, judging from the little superstitions being followed to this day (such as jumping up and down at the stroke of the New Year). To think that the Philippines has “plenty of laws and guidelines for health and malnutrition,” as noted by Dr.
Here are other alarming facts: One in every two children in the poorest sectors is stunted by World Health Organization standards, says the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI).
It gets worse in the poorer, remoter regions, according to a special report by the Inquirer’s Jocelyn Uy. Mercifully, there are many things that can be done to address the problem—from breastfeeding and complementary feeding practice programs to antipoverty measures. There is an important measure waiting to be made into law: the “First 1,000 Days Bill” or Senate Bill No. Now is the best time for the President to “champion” this priority nationwide, says Save the Children’s health and nutrition advisor Dr. It was William Wordsworth who wrote, “The child is father to the man.” In its literal sense, a child’s greatness or weakness is shaped by his or her early days.
The story is told about a husband who was facing a big problem: He could not open their home computer.
Jesus could have armed His disciples with guns, or given them the necessary skills and provisions, but He did not.
By worldly standards, the disciples were the most unprepared and the most unworthy people to carry out such a big mission. We are to keep going in our mission, but along with this, we are to keep going to God’s heart.  We are not just functionaries. I am writing this column in our Mission Center in San Jose, Batangas, and from my room, I can see bunches of green rambutan which will turn yellow and red in a month’s time.
Think about this: “Not everyone will see our sacrifices or appreciate our efforts, or understand our actions and intentions. Lord, help us to keep going, to keep doing our mission, and reach Heaven, our final destination. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte dutifully went through the rituals of a tightly scripted inaugural ceremony last Thursday.  He embraced the full text of his prepared speech with good humor, giving it a tone and a cadence that hewed closely to the established patterns of inaugural speeches.
Though a little stiff at the start, President Digong stayed well-poised throughout the event.  Still, he could not resist signaling a desire to free himself from the straitjacket of the formal state function in which he had found himself.
Uttered by anyone else, these would be motherhood statements.  But, we find them powerful because we don’t expect them to be said by Rodrigo Duterte in his very first speech as president. And, can minding one’s own work possibly mean “Don’t look into my backyard”?  Isn’t the business of agencies like the Commission on Human Rights, for example, precisely to look into the State’s backyard in order to ensure that, in the performance of its work, government does not trample on the rights of its citizens?
What gives me pause, however, is the awareness that history is replete with instances when citizens used their democratic rights to put an end to democracy itself.
1) people’s initiative (PI), 2) constituent assembly (Con-ass), and 3) constitutional convention (Con-con). I believe PI cannot be used because, as held by the Supreme Court in Lambino vs Comelec (Oct. On the other hand, under the Con-ass method, “Congress, upon a vote of three-fourths of all its Members” may directly propose the Charter changes. Given our bicameral Congress, I think that the vote should be “separate.” If ordinary legislation is separately voted upon, why should the remaking of the most fundamental law be treated any less stringently? These and similar questions will surely come up and will take time to resolve, given that the lawmakers will want to protect their political turf and to assure the election of their favorites.
After the bill is passed into law, the Commission on Elections will have to prepare for the election of the convention delegates.
To save on costs (the government allocated P6.260 billion for the elections last May 9), as well as to minimize election fatigue for the Comelec, the public school teachers (who constitute the Board of Election Inspectors), the election watchdogs, and the voters themselves, the Con-con election could coincide with the barangay elections in October (which may have to be postponed to next year), or with the congressional elections in May 2019.
In any event, given the preparations needed, the earliest the Con-con delegates can convene would be in 2018.
Indeed, revising the Constitution via a Con-con is quite complicated and will definitely take time. While not exactly heartwarming—in fact it was rather anticlimactic—the scene of President Duterte meeting Vice President Leni Robredo onstage was weirdly satisfying. So that was all it took: an invitation to the new Veep to attend an affair also to be graced by the new Chief Executive. Whatever this accidental concession signals, even if it leads to cooperation and amity, or not, it has come too late.
Lest he forget, the President still has to put his “rape joke” behind him, on which the Commission on Human Rights ruled that he had violated the Magna Carta of Women by offending women’s sensibilities—especially those of rape survivors—by making a crass and cruel remark during a campaign sortie.
His treatment of the duly-elected Vice President is not just an offense against Leni Robredo but also against the millions of Filipinos who voted for her.
I suspect his lingering hostility to Leni is rooted in his contempt for women in general, even if he has tried to mask it by his appointment of several women to his Cabinet. As I reported in Friday’s column, covering a health technology conference hosted by VisayasHealth, the Philippines faces an “epidemic” of teenage pregnancies, with Filipino adolescents engaging in sex earlier, with more frequency, and using hardly any protection against sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy. The unplanned and mistimed pregnancies impact not just on the lives of the young mothers (and fathers, too, although only marginally, it seems) but also on those of their children, who face a future haunted by poverty, missed opportunities especially education, and even public shame.
That’s why the focus of this year’s observance of World Population Day centers on teenage girls.
Efforts must be made to search for girls in this situation and seek ways to ease their reentry into school or the job market, while looking after their health needs (including their postpartum family planning needs) and those of their young children.
Given his publicly stated support for family planning, perhaps President Digong can use his influence with the Supreme Court to act with haste on this hanging issue of the TRO against implants and the issuance of new permits to contraceptive marketers. Almost a year has passed since the TRO was issued, and with estimates of about 11 deaths a day of women from causes related to pregnancy and childbirth, of whom a good number are adolescents, we can just imagine the death toll that could have been avoided if contraceptives had just been made available to them. If he’s looking for ways to make it up to the women of this country, our new leader should take the initiative on this issue. On the scenario of scrolling-clicking-reading-sharing that now happens every day of our lives, we swear responsibility and accountability through our fingerprints. Everything that pops up on the social media sites, particularly Facebook, draws attention not just in a single city but in the whole wide world. We have built a culture of finger-pointing and fault-finding, and we have carried it all the way to the rise of the high-technology era. Remember that what you type and post is not just a reflection of the person you are but also a reflection of the leader in you. We can influence people in a morally acceptable manner if we will just be sensitive enough to the things we are doing. We are persons of different capabilities, and we can use these differences to build a nation of good governance.
TOKYO—The United Kingdom, in voting to divorce the European Union, is steering the West into uncharted territory.
Many people in Asia will dismiss these questions the way Neville Chamberlain wrote off Central Europe back in 1938: as problems in faraway countries about which they know and care little. Greater disunity here is particularly dangerous, because Asia lacks the West’s connective institutional framework and regional shock absorbers. Across the region, national rivalries remain raw, and historical memories continue to sow divisions. For decades, the world’s democracies—in Asia and in the West—have not questioned the foundations of their success.
This historical wisdom is now being mocked and dismissed, openly by the likes of Donald Trump in America and Marine Le Pen in France, and cryptically, with a nudge and a wink, by Brexit leaders like former London mayor Boris Johnson and Tory justice secretary Michael Gove.
An honest historical accounting of the European Union would recognize that it established for Europeans a zone of peace founded on individual rights, the rule of law, and social justice.


Europe’s unification required great political vision and will, born of collective revulsion at the horrors of World War II, the insecurity unleashed by the Cold War, and the economic dynamism brought forth by the founding of the European Economic Community, the forerunner to the European Union. In the West and in Asia today, solidarity—a genuine sense of civic community and self-identity—is more necessary than ever to manage the profound social and political changes brought about by global capitalism.
Today, the British people have clearly lost sight of common goals—goals shared with each other and with Europe.
And where European unity was once the project of the future, greater unity among Asia’s democracies must become our region’s project for today.
Britain and Europe—where many other governments behave in the same manner—are now paying the price.
A test of Asia’s ability, and willingness, to build a sense of regional solidarity is at hand. It was such robust solidarity in the face of a common threat that helped impel European unity many decades ago.
Yuriko Koike, Japan’s former defense minister and national security adviser, was chair of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party’s General Council. IN LESS than a month after the May 9 elections, Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), the political party of newly inaugurated President Duterte, said it was close to achieving its goal of creating one of the biggest alliances in Congress’ history.
PDP-Laban successfully recruited other members from the Liberal Party, Nacionalista Party, Nationalist People’s Coalition, National Unity Party, Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats and the party-list coalitions, including Gabriela, to form what they call the “supermajority” coalition. Politics in the Philippines swings like a pendulum and the balimbing (star fruit, which is synonymous to a turncoat in the country) rides on the crest of a wave. Monarchs and despots, kings and queens, emperors and tsars, rulers and tyrants fought wars because of treachery. Historian Ambeth Ocampo describes Pedro Paterno as the greatest turncoat in Philippine history. Felipe Buencamino was a fine example of the Filipino muchas caras at the twilight of Spanish rule and dawn of American regime.
Had Teodoro Patino shut his mouth and not thought of his own interests, Filipinos would have succeeded in their planned revolt against Spain.
Emilio Aguinaldo would not have been captured in the hinterlands of Isabela if not for Cecilio Segismundo. In 1922, the young Quezon organized the country’s “third” political party—Partido Nacionalista Collectivista with all members coming from the Nacionalista Party (NP). Ramon Magsaysay was secretary of national defense when he bolted Elpidio Quirino’s camp and joined NP. When Ferdinand Marcos was Senate President, then President Diosdado Macapagal promised to fully support him in the 1965 presidential election. Months before the 1992 elections, the House of Representatives was controlled by members of the Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP) allied with then Speaker Ramon Mitra Jr. In her Inquirer column, former Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Solita Monsod, said “the sight of the Liberal Party, or most of its members immediately deserting what they thought was a sinking ship, should be denounced. Many perspectives and different opinions resulted in my interviews with some political watchers from the community.
She noted that United Kingdom’s Tony Blair of Labor and David Cameron of the Conservative Party did not just come out from a bamboo and voila, became prime minister. Political parties make decisions on the party line to support, who is running in what constituency, etc.
She said it was not so in the Philippines, where political parties do not have distinguishing characteristics and platform.
Where politicians are often driven by self-interest rather than ideology, switching allegiances is endemic in the country because the Constitution is extremely lax on the ability of candidates to switch parties at a snap of a finger, said Richard Javad Heydarian, a De La Salle University assistant professor. Turncoatism is an inescapable reality in the Philippines, according to Romy Garcia, a former senior research assistant at the UP College of Public Administration. There are no mass defections in most modern democracies, like the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Australia and New Zealand when a political party loses in the polls, Miriam College instructor Kris Ablan said.
Political turncoatism is an accepted practice among elected politicians in the Philippines, said educator-servant and professional urban planner Gabby Lopez. While most declare their principles, one cannot help but suspect self-interests as the basic motivation, according to Lopez of Filipino turncoats. Loyalty to the party seems to be a thing of the past if you ask Medy Beroy, an independent medical and legal contractor based in Georgia in the United States. He argued that in the first place political parties in the country, the Communist Party of the Philippines excepted, were not hewing to a clear, well-defined ideology. Good politicians, according to him, switch sides to make sure their constituents can get their fair share of the national budget. The prohibition on turncoatism was removed in the 1986 Constitution during the time of then President Corazon Aquino. On the other hand, Cass Sunstein, in his Bloomberg “Societies Need Turncoats” article, gave us a mind-changing definition of the turncoat. With some 25 percent of Filipinos living in poverty, the biggest challenge for Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto “Ernie” M.
In recent interviews, Pernia, 73, emphasized the need to distribute economic growth to benefit the countryside—not surprising given his extensive background and specialization in development economics. The soft-spoken professor emeritus of economics at the University of the Philippines Diliman also counts demographic economics as well as human resource economics among his fields of interest. At the recent “Sulong Pilipinas: Hakbang Tungo sa Kaunlaran” consultative workshop held in Davao City between business leaders and President Duterte’s economic managers, the director general of the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda), cited the need to shift from a consumption-driven economy to an investment and export-driven one to achieve growth.
The agriculture and manufacturing sectors should be supported as well to create more jobs even for the less-skilled members of the labor force, Pernia said, while the share of services in the economic output may have to be reduced even as it is now a huge contributor to economic growth. The Duterte administration also wants “to make overseas employment an option, not a necessity,” the Neda chief added. Pernia earlier told the Inquirer that the Duterte administration will prioritize poverty reduction, regional and rural development as well as quality education and healthcare.
He also noted several steps that the government will undertake to bring about a “much-improved” investment climate, among them cutting red tape, easing constitutional restrictions on foreign direct investment and putting in place a competitive tax system.  Along with better infrastructure and an improved law and order situation, these initiatives are expected to bring in more investments that will create more jobs and ultimately reduce poverty.
In his most recent output at the UP School of Economics, a discussion paper titled “Do Regions Gain from an Open Economy?” that he penned with then Ph.D.
Given such realities, Pernia would have to translate his long years of academic and research experience into actually reducing poverty, unemployment and underemployment while sustaining robust economic growth.
He obtained his economics degree from the University of San Carlos in 1967 and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy, magna cum laude, from San Carlos Major Seminary in Cebu in 1963.
He was also cum laude when he took his bachelor’s degree in theology from the University of Santo Tomas Central Seminary.
According to Pernia’s curriculum vitae posted on the UP School of Economics website, he also worked as economist and researcher at the Manila-based multilateral lender Asian Development Bank, the International Labor Organization’s regional office in Bangkok, Thailand, and the East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Pernia also authored or took part in the publication of at least 10 books and monographs, 35 journal articles and reference papers, as well as discussion papers and articles on a wide range of topics, including development planning, population and urbanization.
Diokno headed the budget department during the Estrada administration, but stepped down in 2001 when then Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo took power. At a recent workshop for businessmen and economic managers in Davao City, Diokno told reporters that the government planned to review the proposed 2017 national budget, even as he stressed there would be no reenacted budget in the next six years. Diokno said the annual budget of the Duterte administration would prioritize higher public expenditures on vital infrastructure, equivalent to 5-7 percent of the gross domestic product. And in a recent e-mail to the Inquirer, he vowed to end underspending on public goods and services, which tempered the country’s growth potentials in the past two to three years.
Noting that underspending is due to the “ineptness or incompetence” of some department chiefs, Diokno said he would ask secretaries and undersecretaries to undergo retraining, while a program to boost project monitoring would also be strengthened. He said he would also do away with the practice of allowing fiscal planners to “play around with the slacks in the budget” to finance projects not authorized by Congress, in a controversial practice by the past administration that became known as the Disbursement Acceleration Program, or DAP. Diokno, however, said the new administration would follow the Aquino government’s move in adopting the General Appropriations Act (GAA) as release document. Diokno also said that on his watch, the DBM will “revisit” the bottom-up budgeting (BUB) scheme, another program introduced by the Aquino administration that allows local governments as well as civil society and community groups to pitch the priority poverty-reduction projects to be bankrolled by the annual national budget. During his first tenure as budget chief, Diokno initiated reforms that included strengthening of the public expenditure management system. And to improve strategic budget planning, he initiated a joint public-private sector consultative group called the Budget Dialogue Group. Among his specializations is public economics focusing on governance, tax reform and policies, expenditure analysis. He served as budget undersecretary to President Corazon Aquino until March 1991, during which he was involved in the creation of the 1986 Tax Reform Program that significantly improved collection.
Diokno obtained a public administration degree from the University of the Philippines in 1968. 1 calls for a Constitutional Convention whose members will be elected on the second day of May next year to propose amendments to or a revision of the existing Charter. Chinese state media reported Tuesday that heavy rain continues to wreak havoc in southern China forcing thousands of residents to be evacuated. Anhui’s civil affairs department said 18 people have died and four are missing due to heavy rain since June 18. Lebanese troops detained 103 Syrians for illegal entry into the country, in a security sweep on Tuesday, a day after a series of deadly bombings struck a village near the border with Syria, the military said.
ISIS and al-Qaida militants briefly seized the Lebanese border town of Arsal in 2014, before security forces pushed them back across the frontier.
Marlon Tejada, regional chief of the CIDG-5, said an 80-member composite team comprising representatives from CIDG provincial offices in Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Masbate and Catanduanes, including two platoons from the 5th Regional Public Safety Battalion and the National Bureau of Investigation, served the search warrants to suspected drug personalities at about 1 p.m. Ramirez was taken to a nearby private hospital and no arrests have been made, said the prosecutor’s office, which released no further details. Hasina condemned the attack, which was claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group, and she said security officials arrested one of the militants.
Stop killing in the name of the religion,” Hasina said in a televised address to the nation in which she declared two days of mourning. Save the Children, an international child rights group, made the call as it prepared to raise public awareness on the issue in time for National Nutrition Month.
Yet there is a chilling danger arising from chronic malnutrition: It’s called stunting, made evident by children short and underweight for their age and caused by a poor diet during their first 1,000 days of life and long periods of hunger.

Exclusive breastfeeding (meaning no infant formula) of children in their first year will work wonders.

He called out to the wife: “Honey, did you change the password of our computer?” From across the kitchen, the wife said: “Yes, honey! 10, 1-12.17-20), Jesus warns His disciples about the big and bigger problems they will encounter as they carry out their mission. Precisely because they were unprepared and unworthy, they learned not to rely on themselves.
We must not be disheartened by failure, opposition, delay, and the sense of futility we encounter along the way. The speech was a cogent normative statement of what could pass for a general policy framework.  But, we don’t know to what extent it will guide actual day-to-day decision-making in the Duterte administration. The first comes after the President argues that the fight against criminality, illegal drugs, and corruption will have to be relentless if the people’s faith and trust in government is to be restored. How one performs the functions of government is determined not by a mandate—however one may understand this—but by the Constitution and the laws of the land. Neither the urgency of our problems, nor the impatience of our people, nor the claim of a solid mandate, could justify setting aside the Constitution as the ultimate criterion of lawful official action.
Duterte may find little difficulty in obtaining the two-thirds vote needed for a Con-con, even if the Senate and the House of Representatives were to vote separately, as I believe they should. Incoming Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has taken the first step to get congressional approval by filing on June 30 a bill calling for a Con-con. Many questions will arise, like: Should all Con-con members be elected (or may some of them be ex-officio)? Historically, the constitutional conventions usually take at least a year to finish discussions and deliberations.
While this tedious process is taking place, Congress should rush the enactment of laws to institute the important reforms (other than federalism) that the President and his Cabinet are raring to implement, like tax restructuring, emergency powers to solve Metro Manila’s dizzying traffic, comprehensive peace agreements with our Muslim brethren and the National Democratic Front, a wider agrarian reform program, and amendment of the Local Autonomy Code to devolve more powers to the local government units. One wonders why the folks at Malacanang, especially those surrounding PDu30 (his rather awkward nickname these days), hadn’t thought of it earlier.
The snub was given and taken, and it brings into question PDu30’s priorities and personality. It was a remark, we must note, that was entirely unnecessary, made almost as a side comment, an attempt to elicit laughter.
One wonders if this attitude is not indicative of his internalized attitude toward women in general, as he let slip when he made that offensive joke about the gang rape of the Australian missionary.
So despite the detente signaled by their encounter at the Camp Aguinaldo grandstand, I’m not holding my breath for the emergence of a gender-sensitive President any time soon.
There are about 830 million boys and girls aged 13 to 19 among the world’s 7.3-billion population. None is more vulnerable and powerless than a girl who is pregnant out of wedlock, who has had to leave school, and because of this faces poor employment or income-generating opportunities. Indeed, investing in the future of a teenage mother is investing in the future as well of her children and family. In the first place, under an amendment to the Reproductive Health Law imposed by the Supreme Court, a teenager needs to show written approval by a parent before he or she can receive family planning services from a government health center. Good or bad, it earns both sides of the coin: Millions of people post negative and positive reviews and comments. The ritual of reading government announcements, newspaper pages, campaign materials, and even show biz rants dominates our hours of rest—and, more often than not, causes mental exhaustion. Instead of intelligent debates and thoughtful exchanges of remarks in the comment boxes on Facebook posts, Filipinos have been monstrous narrators of what they feel about a controversy.
You will wonder what these commenters and posters are doing for a living when all they do is criticize one another’s viewpoint endlessly online. Take this, for instance: Think of yourself as the president who will read your commentaries. Now, we also have the social media cancer, and it has grown bigger than any cure we may have for it. Remember that social media now provides easy access to barbaric black propaganda, as much as it provides easy access to pieces of factuality.

Will the European Union now unravel, as other populists and nationalists demand plebiscites on their respective countries’ membership?


The recent recall of an agreed statement by Asean criticizing China for its actions in the South China Sea is but the latest sad example of the immaturity of Asia’s collective security process.
So all Asians must recognize that their countries and region are equally vulnerable to those who would undermine the rule of law and today’s existing structures of peace and prosperity, flimsy as they may be. The “Leave” camp’s ability to scrape together a simple majority by appealing to voters’ basest instincts shows that many people now take their liberties, security, and prosperity for granted. We understood that we needed to stand together, sometimes in formal alliances, sometimes in alliances bound together simply by a shared interest in democracy. Many voters, eager for confirmation of their biases, believed that a smear bordering on parody—the portrayal by Johnson and Gove as some sort of latter-day Nazi project—actually described reality. This is arguably the central reason that Europe could overcome the economic ravages of World War II, and achieve unprecedented living standards across the continent, while also resolving ancient enmities, such as between France and Germany.
But as the British “Remain” camp just learned, much to its sorrow, economic forces alone do not furnish the sense of cohesion or solidarity needed to sustain the project of unification. Markets, and the supply and production chains that now link Asia more intimately than ever before, may create the material basis for a people, or peoples, to cooperate. They have delivered a body blow to the West that can be counteracted only by reviving the will and spirit that inspired European integration and the creation of Nato in the first place. Asian democracies have a clear opportunity to begin to forge a sense of solidarity among themselves; but they must do so in a way that our citizens understand. In the coming days, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague will rule on whether China’s expansive claim on ownership of the South China Sea has any legal basis. Worse, the perfidious tag has stuck and most likely, cannot be undone, a term that has made the yellow-green fruit the most reviled of all Filipino fruits, innocently synonymous to a person who is disloyal, traitor, doble or muchas caras (double or multifaced).
We were made to believe that they began during the Spanish times and flourished when the Americans introduced their political way of life to the archipelago.
There were biblical balimbing (Judas, Esau and King Saul) and up to the beginning of civilization. Up to the modern era, from Wall Street to your tiny little corporate cubicle, a balimbing exists with a “we-live-in-a-disposable-society” mind-set.
When the revolution broke out, he initially sided with the Spanish, reverted to the Filipino camp after being incarcerated by revolucionarios in Cavite and ultimately sided with the Americans.
Antonio Luna once whacked him on the face for proposing to negotiate with the Americans during a heated debate. Squealing the existence of Katipunan because of a P2-wage dispute, he led Spanish authorities in ransacking a printing shop. When self-interest mattered and egos are bruised, it is easy to set up a faction or an entirely new party.
Macapagal reneged on his promise and decided to run for reelection, prompting Marcos to switch to the NP camp. The Liberals, thinking only of themselves (chairmanships bring a lot of perks, including monetary) and not of their constituents (after all, they were elected as Liberals), just abandoned ship,” she said. Retired University of the Philippines professor Clarita Carlos, for example, said the political party system in the Philippines was broken. They are avenues for socialization of its young members as they hone their skills in governance,” Carlos said. It is ducking the winds of change and living another day to fight, a medieval mentality of the vassal system, a kind of pledging an allegiance to the new guy on the block. Whatever the cause may be, members of the losing party take responsibility for their actions and accept the peoples’ mandate. He said adherence to party principles was conveniently shed off when survival and demands of personal interests were at stake.
They’re more like clubs and lodges whose purpose is built around protecting members’ interests and benefiting from being in power.
Once a party is no longer in power, it ceases to be a source of power, protection and money.
Miriam Defensor Santiago said: “Most political parties in the Philippines are not composed of citizens advocating an ideology, platform, principles or policies.
Pernia is to significantly slash this figure to just 16 percent of the population by the end of President Duterte’s term in 2022. This might explain his advocacy of the reproductive health law to slow down population growth and allow better redistribution of resources among families.
Duterte’s 10-point socioeconomic agenda, which includes the continuation of current macroeconomic policies, among them fiscal, monetary and trade policies, and increasing annual infrastructure spending to account for 5 percent of gross domestic product, with public-private partnerships playing a key role. Diokno, 68, plans to reprise his role as a keen guardian of the government’s purse, vowing to correct past spending habits as he heads the agency that formulates and releases the annual budget under the Duterte administration. He then taught economics at the state-run University of the Philippines, where he was also a sought-after academic commenting on public finances. The administration of  former President Benigno Aquino III has already started to formulate the proposed P3.5-trillion budget for next year. The economy is deficient in all types of infrastructure—highways and bridges, ports and airports,” Diokno said. President Duterte’s 2017 to 2022 budgets will be compliant with the Supreme Court decision on the DAP,” Diokno said.
The DBM adopted the GAA as a release document in  2014, scrapping the special allotment release order system. I did this 16 years ago when I adopted the ‘what-you-see-is-what-you-get’ budget execution system. He also imposed a moratorium on the creation of new state universities and colleges, and pushed for the abolition of several agencies. 2 to amend the 1987 Constitution to lift the long-standing limits on foreign ownership of land, natural resources, schools, media and public utilities.
Almost 15,000 houses have collapsed or are seriously damaged and more than 500,000 hectares of crops have been affected, causing direct economic losses of 5.669 billion yuan ($850 million), the department said. We understand that she will head the Committee on Justice of the Senate so she has exposed herself already to be a biased lawmaker,” Jimenez said in a statement. The unprecedented attacks nine explosions in all, eight of them suicide bombings triggered fear and panic among residents of Qaa village and a deepening sense of foreboding in Lebanon, which has grappled for over five years with spillovers from neighboring Syria’s civil war. He said membership to Pink Pistols, a national LGBT pro-gun rights organization has grown from 1,500 to 4,000 since Omar Mateen’s June 12 rampage in Orlando, Florida. So-called Narcocorrido artists have been singing about the exploits and lives of Mexican drug traffickers and kingpins.
Bangladeshi forces stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s Gulshan area where heavily armed militants held dozens of people hostage Saturday morning, rescuing some captives including foreigners at the end of the 10-hour standoff. Aside from the fact that they are very few in number, they will also experience poverty, deprivation, opposition, and persecution.
Let this be our message, still, when all around us there are killings and violations of human rights.
May we all continue to do our part in the task of nation-building, no matter how small or humble our contribution. On June 5 (Federalism 101), I explained the basics of the federal system, with the intention of stimulating public debate. 2006), only minor amendments can be the subject of this mode, not complicated matters, like federalism which alters the government’s nature and structure.
Two-thirds (or 16) of the 24 senators can call a Con-con while three-fourths (or 18) are needed to approve the proposed changes in a Con-ass. In the Philippines, with a population of 102 million, 33 percent (almost one in three) is aged 0-14 years, while 19 percent (almost one in five) of the population is composed of boys and girls aged 15-24 years.
Secondly, the high court’s temporary restraining order on contraceptive drugs and devices threatens the imminent loss of any access to any form of contraception, even from private providers, and even by adult married couples. And if it could just pay the bills and taxes, we would have financed the replacement of our country’s aging airports and decrepit railways with brand-new types.
We are brothers and sisters who will also become the benefactors of the innovations we are debating about, but we are too stubborn to even listen to each other. Will Nato, the grand postwar alliance that has guaranteed Europe’s security for almost seven decades, also begin to disintegrate, as its members turn inward (like Britain) or, worse, against each other?
It shows that too many have lost sight of what made the postwar developed world so affluent, free, and safe to begin with. We understood that our prosperity was built on the rule of law, the fundamental integrity of our political institutions, and the openness of our societies—to the outside world and to the “outsiders” among us. To function as a viable and vital polity, Europe now needs a new imperative, a new sense of mission around which to rally. But they cannot produce the sense of shared purpose that societies need in order to flourish. Successive British governments failed to defend their country’s membership in the European Union—and most regularly used it as an all-purpose bogeyman to explain away their own policy failures.
If Asia’s democracies stand behind the Court’s ruling, whatever it is, they can begin to demonstrate that, with a shared sense of purpose, they are prepared to defend the rule of law—and each other.
Get hold of Arthur Redding’s “Turncoats, Traitors and Fellow Travelers” book and you are going to unearth more.
They would meet again in a violent confrontation on June 5, 1899, the day Luna was assassinated. The operation yielded incriminating evidence against the Katipunan and doomed the fate of many revolutionaries. Crossing the “aisle” or changing political parties is virtual political suicide, Carlos said. Creative and accounts people leave their ad agencies to handle a competitive brand in another shop.
They wrought it upon themselves by perpetuating a toxic culture of political dispensation,” Lopez said. Some candidates would sometimes opt to run as independent, giving them a lot of freedom to campaign for themselves to ensure victory,” she said.
And yet the public reaction to balimbing ranges from resentment to abhorrence,” he lamented.
Many programs and projects are included in the annual budget, yet they are not ready to implement. However, this was forgotten by [former President Gloria] Arroyo during her entire term and [President] Aquino during his first [few] years in office,” Diokno said. In resource management, he specialized on public policy concerning oil and water resources. A minimum wage earner can allocate only P151 daily to feed his or her children, leading to harmful diets like rice with instant noodles or sardines instead of proper meals with more fruits and vegetables. It seeks to protect the Filipino child through proper nourishment under a web of government programs. Yet, they must be constant, and they must keep going in spite of problems, in their mission to bring peace and the Good News wherever they go, whatever they do.
Yes, let us keep going, and as the Lord has promised, let us rejoice because our names are written in Heaven! Among Ricafort, SVD, some 15 years ago, and they will continue to bear fruit long after we are gone. May those who have been mandated to lead and to serve our people not miss their opportunity to really lead and serve, and to leave behind a worthy legacy.
The following Sunday, June 12 (Federalism 102), the five most debated aspects of this system were listed.
More important, the Con-con, unlike Congress, would be able to devote full time to exhaustively discuss the many aspects of federalism and the other proposed constitutional changes (like the parliamentary system).
But an equal number, or more, have to be investigated to find the sensibility in them, if any.
We only want to be on top of the charts, but in the course of our climbing, we tend to step on others’ ladders—and toes. We are slowly growing to be part of a culture that doesn’t honor traditional Filipino values.
Or do we want to “cure” others because we lack the acceptance that we, too, have gone wrong? Let us become the persons, readers, citizens and leaders we want for our country, the leaders we deserve. Let our viewpoints become the antidote for the cancer that we are fighting now, so that we wouldn’t have to waste our time fighting it for the next years to come.
It is that time of the year when seats of power are up for grabs and everyone is jockeying for a position as the musical chairs begins. Even maids and drivers will say goodbye (at a moment’s notice!) to move to another household.
She added that even one’s own party mate could junk a candidate if he or she hindered his or her chances of winning.
Being outside the kulambo (mosquito net) means being in fiscal and political limbo, and being in limbo affects the good and the bad equally. Some departments ask for a budget that they are unable to implement: they bite more than what they can chew,” Diokno said. He was an early proponent of Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition, which led to outpatient and feeding programs for Davao City’s malnourished children.
As someone said, we are called not so much to become successful as to be faithful and humble through it all. This is a good reminder for us all: to be focused not so much on what we are getting and keeping as on what we are leaving behind.
Public hearings and consultations will probably be heard by the relevant committees of both chambers.
We do not want to make peace between ourselves and others, but we criticize our government’s way of bringing about peace on the island of Mindanao. Here, lobby groups, the trimedia, social media, academics, and plain kibitzers would want to be heard, pro and contra. We do not embrace the possibility of change because we think what’s laid is already laid, and what we can do is only to improve on it. What we have now is the burning desire to parade our opinions and demolish everyone else along the way. The journey is going to the heart—to God’s heart, to other people’s hearts, and to your very own heart.
But I tell you, a total overhaul is the best possible solution to problems, to bring about great things in the future. We may be entitled to our own points of view on various controversies, but we are not entitled to make fun of people we do not like, or who do not agree with us.
