Press Release
November 7, 2006


"We welcome the decision of the President announced before the Ledac that the JPEPA will be submitted to the Senate for ratification. The Senate, as rightfully acknowledged by PGMA, is the proper venue for a dispassionate and comprehensive review of the terms and conditions of the agreement. We laud the decision of the President. We see this decision as a step forward as well in terms of improving the relations between the Senate and Malacanang with the end in view of ensuring that the welfare of the people is not compromised. We may not see eye to eye on certain issues but all this is part of our constitutional democracy and should not prevent both the Senate and Malacanang from finding common ground of cooperation in certain areas of governance that shall benefit the public ."
