HR 1109

In current events, Politics on June 4, 2009 at 8:38 AM

House Resolution 1109 was filed by and pushed in the House of Representatives. It aims to convene a constituent assembly to modify or put new rules in our constitution.

I had an encounter with our current constitution when i was still in school (in my  political science subject and was it social studies in High school?). back then I was just contented of knowing that we have a constitution. But now, I  want some improvement in our constitution, mainly for us to be able to ride the wave of the changing times and be able to change the future for the Filipino people.

So i think its not a question of changing/modifying our constitution or not. But the questionssss should be :

  1. What changes do we intend to make? What do we add, what do we erase, etc. etc..
  2. Who will change it?
  3. By what means are we going to do this?
  4. When are we going to change it?
