Advanced mag-isip! Sta. Maria notes nuance in draft federal charter

Sharing is caring!

Far Eastern University Law dean Mel Sta. Maria has read between the lines of the draft federal charter approved by the President’s Consultative Committee.

One of the nuances in the proposed constitution is the provision that allegedly allows the President to seek reelection.

“The draft constitution states that the incumbent President’s term “shall not be extended”. But it does not say he is prohibited from being re-elected. A clever use of words. Was this meant to confuse? Extension is lengthening without reelection,” he said in a tweet.

Do you agree with Sta. Maria’s interpretation?
