    VP Leni: No to ‘no-el,’ term extension

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday raised her opposition against the possibility of having no elections and extending the term of sitting officials, amid talks of amending the Constitution for federalism.

    VP Leni noted that such moves undermine the people’s inherent right to choose their leaders.

    “Itong No Elections, kontrang kontra tayo doon,” she said during her weekly radio show, BISErbisyong LENI, on RMN-DZXL 558. “Kasi iyonh eleksyon, parang ito iyong pinakabuod ng ating demokrasya. Ito lamang iyong natatanging paraan para iyong ordinaryong Pilipino makilahok sa isang proseso na siya iyong pipili kung sino iyong mamumuno sa kaniya.”

    “Kasi kami namang mga namumuno, hindi naman kami iyong boss, pero kami iyong boses ng ordinaryong Pilipino. Kapag inalis natin sa ordinaryong Pilipino iyong karapatang pumili kung sino iyong magre-represent sa kaniya, nasaan na iyong demokrasya doon?”

    Moreover, she said moving to extend the term of sitting officials would seem “self-serving.”

    “[K]ung makikinabang kami, parati nang may kuwestiyon kung ano iyong intensyon bakit magkakaroon ng term extension. Parang self-serving: ‘Gusto naming palawigin iyong aming termino, kaya magpapasa kami ng isang panukala o isang batas para habaan pa iyong kontrata namin sa mga Pilipino’ … Nasaan iyong katarungan doon?” she said.

    “Hindi pansariling interes. Kasi kung kami din iyong makikinabang, parating magdududa iyong ating mga kababayan kung bakit sinusulong iyong ganoon. Parang gusto lang naming palawigin iyong kapangyarihan na ibinigay sa amin,” she added.

    Meanwhile, the Vice President underscored the need for a “more serious” discussion on proposed amendments to the Constitution.
