Kiko on the Supreme Court decision to junk
with finality the People's Initiative

I welcome the decision of the Supreme Court to lay to rest the People's Initiative. Its decision to dismiss with finality even a petition to change the charter through People's Initiative, is perhaps the final nail on the coffin that will bury this illegal petition, that employed unconstitutional and deceptive means to use the constitutionally guaranteed right to initiative.

The Supreme Court once again reiterated that they will not allow the desecration of the Constitution. The country should now look forward instead to the conduct of free and fair elections as the venue for confronting the issues and concerns of the past, as a referendum even on the present administration. It is time to move on and let go, so that we can finally move forward towards a more politically stable and progressive nation.
