The People’s National Coalition for Revolutionary Government and Charter Change bared its priority program under a revolutionary government within its limited period of twelve months.
In its assembly held in Sto. Tomas, Batangas hosted by Southern Luzon Solidarity for Charter Change attended by forty eight organizations including Federal Coalition of Filipino Tribes, Cordillera Peoples Liberation Army and the Moro National Liberation Front, Bobby Brillante, RevGov Committee Chairman and National Deputy Spokesperson disclosed their 10-Point Priority Program to be accomplished within one year period before President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s term end on June 30, 2022.
Top of the agenda is the consolidation of draft constitution transforming the system of government to a Federal system with one unicameral legislative body as parliament whose leader is the Prime Minister and his Cabinet Ministers running the day to day affairs of the government.
Prominent among the proposals is the constitution drafted by the Commission chaired by former Chief Justice Reynato Puno to be finalized within three months after which, the proposed constitution shall be submitted within the next 90 daysto the people forreferendum. Then national and local elections shall be held at a scheduled date under the new constitution.
Equally important, is the provision in the proposed constitution that provides equal opportunity in public service dismantling family dynasty and prohibition of family members in government service up to the third degree of affinity and consanguinity. Only one member of a family shall be allowed to serve in public office. The concentration of power in one family in every city, town and province or region allows unabated abuse of power and uncontrolled corruption to the great disadvantage of the taxpayers and people, Brillante said.
