Behind The Limelight

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 ·

Thanks to Hayden Kho and his solomonic affairssssss with 40 plus women, GMA's allies have, without limelight, successfully passed a resolution to set up a Constituent Assembly (Con-Ass) that would give Gloria Arroyo the opportunity to stay in power beyond 2010.

This scheming move happened as the whole nation is going gaga over the Hayden Kho scandals.

The approval of House Resolution No. 1109 empowered Congress to convene itself into a Con-ass in which members of the House and the Senate would vote jointly—not separately—to amend the 1987 Constitution.

As Bayan Muna party-list representative warns, “this means that under 1109, we are opening the entire Constitution to amendments .... This is where Malacañang’s agenda to keep President Arroyo in power will come in”.

mlq3, in his blog, states the possible scenarios available for President Arroyo, when the Con-Ass becomes successful:

1. The President can come out strongly for the parliamentary system in her State of the Nation address in July.

2. She can play coy, since the game is afoot and she can run for congresswoman, become Speaker, then Prime Minister after 2010 ( I have made a previous post about this one).

The congress is expected to convene its deliberations today.
