Cha-cha na walang Senate approval, balewala – solon

MANILA, Philippines – Mababalewala ang gagawing Charter Change provisions kung hindi ito aaprubahan ng Senado.

Ito ang paglilinaw ni House Deputy Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II sa kabila ng pinapayagan ng Konstitusyon ang Kongreso na maghain ng amendments sa pamamagitan ng 3/4 vote ng lahat ng miyembro nito.

“If our resolution, even through we approve it by a vote, of at least 3/4 will reach the Senate and the Senate will do anything about it, then that’s it. Wala na tayo pag-uusapan na amendment. It’s dead, because for the proposed amendment to be approved, there must also be an action by the Senate in approving the same by it’s 3/4 vote of all its members,” paliwanag ni Gonzales.

Sinabi ni Gonzales na hindi na dapat pag-argumentuhan ang magkahiwalay na pagboto.

“Tt doesn’t matter whether that phrase of voting separately is not found in our RBH7, because we are already doing that. They will be voting on the same. If they approve their own RB6, and then our RB7 are likewise approved with the requisite vote, then I don’t suppose that there will be a conflict and my assumption would be a treated as a bill, like a bill, like an enrolled bill. It will be an enrolled resolution and instead of referring it to the Office of the President for his signature, it will be referred to the Comelec for the scheduling of the plebiscite as provided for in the constitution,” ani Gonzales.

Ipinaliwanag ni Gonzales na ang usapin ng Cha-cha sa Kamara ay nangangailangan pa rin ng pag-apruba sa Senado.

Walang nakikitang problema si Gonzales kahit pa man wala sa resolusyon nh Kamara ang pagboto ng magkahiwalay.

“I understand that a reading of the resolution of the Senate is that there is a phrase the House voting separately. But that phrase is absent in our resolution because there is no need for us to do so. Because as I have said, we are processing this resolution in the manner that a bill is being processed. We will vote on it and after we vote on it then we will send it to the Senate and the Senate will vote on it. So that is a guarantee without expressly stating it in the resolution, that it will be sent to the Senate for achieving the 3/4 vote should they so desire in approving the proposed amendment,” giit ng mambabatas.

Gayundin ang paliwanag ni Retired Supreme Court Associate Justice Adolfo Sevilla Azcuna, aniya, anumang pagkakaiba sa bersyon ng Senado at Kamara ay marerekonsidera sa oras na makakuha ng 3/4 vote.

“But the substance is the same. So it is approved, you can reconcile minor differences by a bicameral committee and then come out with the same version and then approve it again, the unified version. You can call it Resolution of Both Houses #8 or number 6/7 but common version it should be the same because it’s Resolution of Both Houses eh,” pahayag ni Azcuna.

Ukol sa pangamba na maisisingit ang political amendments, sinabi ni Azcuna na hindi ito maisasagawa dahil limitado lamang ang sakop ng gagawing amendments.

“Political matters are not covered because they are not in the subject matter stated in the title so that is the safeguard so as long as it is only Resolution of Both Houses 6 of the Senate and 7 of the House are the ones proposed and approved then it will only be on economic provisions, and even then only on articles, 12, 14, and 16,” paliwanag pa ni Azcuna.
