MANILA — Hindi kasama ang charter change sa priority measures ng Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC).
Ayon kay Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva nitong Lunes, nagpulong sila sa LEDAC at inilatag ang mga batas na target maipasa hanggang Hunyo 2023. Hindi aniya napag-usapan sa LEDAC ang pag-amyenda sa Saligang Batas.
“It was not even tackled in our LEDAC meeting, so I don’t see any reason why we will be focusing into it. But of course, the committee hearings will continue and we appreciate efforts being made by our chair Senator Robinhood Padilla. A lot of the senators were saying we have passed these measures like Retail Trade Liberalization Act, Foreign Investment Act and the Public Services Act," ani Villanueva.
"We wanted to find out ano ba yung effects nito or pupwedeng maging makuha natin mula sa pagpasa nitong 3 mahahalagang batas na ito, if we are just [going to] think about the idea of opening our constitution doon sa economic side of it, so 'yun 'yung maraming concerns ng ating kasamahan sa Senado,“ dagdag pa niya.
Sa isang pahayag, sinabi ng Malacañang na kasama sa priority measures na "adopted for passage" ng LEDAC ang mga sumusunod.
• Maharlika Investment Fund bill
• The mandatory implementation of the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) and the National Service Training Program (NSTP)
