Philippines: No need for charter change

Inside PCIJ reports that a recent poll indicate that 70% of Filipinos believe that President Arroyo's call to amend the Constitution is unnecessary. On the flip side, however, roughly the same percentage admitted that they had little or no knowledge of the Constitution.

    Palitan ang mga balasubas na namumuno sa gobyerno hindi ang uri ng gobyerno.

    ang uri ng gobyerno ay may pagkaluang sa mga pangyayari. sa tingin ko, ang pagplit ng uri ng gobyerno ay makakatulong upang ang kaunlaran ay mas mapapabilis, ang reporma ay mas mainam at ang kurapsyon ay maiiwasan.

  • ano ang charter change?
    Ano ang epekto nito?
    Bakit ito ipinanukala?

    Ang dapat palitan ay ang mga namumuno sa ating bansa dahil kung papalitan ang uri ng gobyerno at hindi ang mga opisyal, wala ding mangyayari sa ating bansa. Mabubulok parin tayo.

  • hindi gusto ang mga namumuno sa gobeyrno.

    hindi makakatulong ang charter change sa ating bansa.
    baka mas lalo lang tayo maghirap.
    ang mga mamamayang PILIPINO sa ngayon ay lumalaban nalang para sa sariling kapakanan.
    makakain, mabuhay.
    ano ang silbi ng bagong contitution, kung bulok naman ang mga namamahala rito??
    kailangan natin ay pagkakaisa, bagay na imposibli, dahil may kanya-kanya tayong pananaw, pinapanigan.
    mapride kasi tayo.
    “THE ADMINISTRATION JUST USING ‘CHARTER CHANGE’ FOR HER POLITICAL SURVIVAL”

  • What would charter change effect on us anyway?I think we’re just doing a trial-and-error process..If we do such move, we wouldn’t know the real consequence, if it would change anything for better or not.. I think if we just spend the money for a better use then I think it would be a better step in solving the crisis..

    why do we need charter change? wala na bang ibang mas mahalagang issue na dapat talakayin ng gobyreno natin? kahit iba na ang uri ng gobyerno but with the same corrupt officials pa rin, what’s the use? mag-aaksaya lamang tayo ng panahon at pera na dapat sana ay inukol sa mas makabuluhang problema ng bansa..

    I think we need to change the form of government that we. To eliminate corrupt piliticians. But this is not the right time. We should pay attention first to many problems that our economy is facing.
