Constitutional amendments consultation set March 17

THE House committee on constitutional amendments will hold a public consultation at the Masskara Hall of the Bacolod City Government Center on March 17.

Committee Secretary Aline Ruth Villaluz said in the invitation that the consultation is meant to determine public sentiment primarily on three issues.

First, whether it is necessary to amend or revise the constitution; second, the preferred mode of amendments or revision; and the third, seek proposals from the public.

Villaluz, speaking on behalf of Representative Roger Mercado who chairs the committee, said representatives from different sectors, including the local government units are invited to attend.

The committee on constitutional amendments is a 35-member panel which has jurisdiction over all matters directly and principally relating to amendments or revisions of the Constitution.
