    it could only be, IF, the amended constitution will take effect... otherwise, mukhang di uubra yan... OR;

    GMA herself, would dissolve both houses of congress, declare martial law, and call for a snap election, just like what Marcos did years back.


    Damage control lang yan kasi mahirap na kung pati si FVR bumaligtad na ng tuluyan.

    GMA has long been supporting the change to Parliamentary system even before the presidential elections, so cutting her term by 2007 is no big deal to her. She might even get re-elected "yet again" kung totoong marami pa ring sumosuporta sa kanya.

    Ang tanong: Who will be the Prime Minister?

    Jos kow pow, wag naman sanang si Joe De Venecia.

    Boy Ferrari...

    Based on the reports... the Executive office will still hold court until 2010. Only the Legislative branch will be affected by this on 2007... namely the abolition of the upper House or to put it lightly, the consolidation of Congress into a single House.

    From this, you can deduce what their proposed "new" form of government will be... a President & Congress / Parliament will still be elected by the people... but a Prime Minisiter will be appointed / nominated by the Parliament. This will resemble closely Germany's form of government. The President will then be less powerful and be closely relegated to ceremonial functions "only". The President might still veto laws, represent the country abroad, be the commander-in-chief, etc. but the day-to-day running of the country will fall to laps of the Prime Minister.

    Though I have a strong feeling that JDV will be gunning for the PM position. He has enough political clout to gain a majority of Congress' vote. FVR can also make a comeback through this.

    let's welcome change ... lagi naman sigaw ng lahat palpak sistema ng Pilipinas. eto may bago proposal sistema, either will work or not work ... but still there's hope.

    for those who will argue na eh d ganon nanaman, sila sila din mga pulitiko/congressman uupo dyan. hayaan na lang muna natin for the 1st few years.

    at least a new system is in effect, tayo mga kabataan susunod na makaayos nyan -> the efficient generation coz puro computer-literate na tayo. pag unicam na, di na natin kelangan mga senador na hinde mo maintindihan kung ano ba role nila sa Pilipinas. Kaya tumataas ang VAT, electricity, text, telecommunication dahil sa lukewarm approval nila ng laws. napipilitan mga negosyante tuloy ipasa sa tin yun mga pang-lagay nila sa mga senador na yan, add to fact, that they have bigger share of the pork barrel.

    pag may problema tayo, yun na lang representative ng lugar natin sa parliament ang kakausapin, d na nakakalito.

    simple lang naman dapat ang role ng gobyerno, to service the people. let's start from the basic. eliminate all redundant agencies, na kunwari pang counter-check ng ibang agency. pampalito lang and lalo pa magastos.

    sana nga sa susunod pang-merge ang 13 municipalities ng M.M, gawin na lang 6 municipalities na lang ang metro. parang maeliminate ang redundant mayors/v. mayors etc. damihan na lang councilors and kagawad. 6 mayors arguing in conference table with MMDA are better than having 13. saka dapat talaga wag-13, malas eh!

    Yup, meron pang referendum na mangyayari. So botohan na naman bago maging Parliament ang gubyerno. Another round ng accusations ng dayaan ulit.

    nalilito na ako sa gobyerno natin hehe...

    para sa akin eh okay pa rin yung 1987 constitution, kahit ano ipalit natin form of government eh mga sakim pa rin mga yan..

    teka, pag parliamentary na, sino na lang pede iboto ng mga tao?

    actually mas maliit ang gastos tuwing election kapag parliamentary form of government. puro local positions lang ang up for grab, wala ng national position. pero depende kung gagawin nilang elected official ang president and vice president.
