Cory magic to stop Charter Change - to a Parliamentary System.
MANILA -- The opposition warned President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to be “very, very afraid” of the people's wrath regarding Charter change (Cha-cha).
They said the unity displayed by the people during former president Corazon Aquino’s funeral showed it could be a potent force against any moves to change the Constitution.
It is not just the opposition here in the Philippines that wants to stop a parliamentary system to be imposed on the citizens. It's the elitist political clans on all sides of the political fence.
I have seen so much bad propaganda conserning changing the governing system. If the system was changed it would allow the middle class and poor a chance to obtain seats in government. A really push people power on to the political floor and in the arena. This could mean a real reform to rid corruption and a real positive approach to riding the country of its poverty.
Its got to a point that the citizen in the street does not even know what a paliamentary system is, and of course if their politicians say its evil, well its evil.
It certaily does not mean that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will become the queen of the Philippines, lol
Why go through with all the trouble in changing the governance system when she could easily follow the steps of Marco's and extend her term as president? She is not imposing the system she wants to have it voted in democraticly to give the citizens more power and take the power away from the political clans. Get the pigs out of the trough and gets some real reforms done to benifit the people.
