Day 2: My output :p

Makati mayor and United Opposition president Jejomar Binay called Speaker Prospero Nograles’ “fourth mode” of constitutional amendment the administration’s “game plan” in bringing the issue of Charter Change (Cha cha) to the Supreme Court (SC).

Binay said members of the pro-Arroyo party Kabalikat ng Mamamayang Pilipino (Kampi), pushing for a Constituent Assembly, are expected to question Nograles’ formula most likely by bringing it, together with the Cha cha issue, to SC.

“Bringing the issue of Charter Change to the Supreme Court was the game plan all along. What we are witnessing is a script being played out by Lakas and Kampi,” Binay said.

He added that pro-administration congressmen in the House are “united” in bringing Cha cha to SC “where they hope to get a sympathetic ruling.”

Binay also called Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s administration the “real distabilizer” after her silence on the Cha cha railroading created “disunity at a time of economic crisis.”

“The Cha cha plan and Mrs. Arroyo’s silence…bolster suspicions that there is a separate, more sinister plan to trigger political unrest to justify emergency rule and the cancellation of elections,” Binay said.

Binay’s reaction came after Nograles pushed on Monday a new constitutional amendment formula which will treat House Resolution 737 as an ordinary bill to be voted on separately by the House and the Senate.
