Statement of Sen. Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendments and Revision of Codes,
On survey results on federal system of government

Maliwanag sa resulta ng SWS survey na tatlo sa bawat apat na Pilipino ang hindi alam ang panukalang pagpalit ng sistema ng gobyerno sa pederalismo na hindi pwedeng pwersahin ang Chacha.

The latest survey result is consistent with past survey results, which also showed little knowledge about the planned new form of government.

Part of our mandate is to conduct several other hearings during the sine die break as the previous ones were only on the issue of Charter change.

Our previous hearings sought to answer the following questions: Is there a need to change the Constitution? If yes, what provisions and why? Who should amend the Constitution? Legislators as a constituent assembly? Or elected delegates in a constitutional convention? If con-ass, should the Senate and the House of Representatives vote jointly or separately?

The succeeding hearings may focus on the actual Chacha proposals, which we still have not officially received.

Paano mauunawaan ng mamamayan nang malaliman ang federalismo kung wala namang maliwanag at konkretong mungkahi tungkol dito?
