On New Charter Drive

Senator Richard Gordon called the Charter change drive “at best a diversion” to the chamber’s inquiry into the NBN deal, using local government units to project that the advocates have a support base.

Last October 2006, the Supreme Court rejected the people's initiative petition filed by Sigaw ng Bayan (Cry of the People) and Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines because it failed to comply with the constitutional requirement that the initiative must be directly proposed by the people and because proponents of the amendment also sought an overhaul of the Constitution.
