Fr. Ranhilio disappointed with DBM representatives

Fr. Ranhilio Aquino, abogado and member of the Consultative Committee (ConCom) on the federal charter, expressed in a tweet that their meeting with representatives from the Department of Budget and Management was not exactly pleasant.

“It was most disappointing for the ConCom to listen to the DBM representatives. We had hoped to learn from them, but all that the Usecs and Asecs told us was that they could not second-guess the Secretary who was invited but did not show up,” he said.

But it was still, however, a productive meeting. For instance, Ranhilio praised former Comelec commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal for his insights.

“Very helpful were the comments of former Commissioner Larazabal of COMELEC as well as those of the opponent of the present form of automation. The draft requires that whatever be the means used, the entire electoral process is publicly ‘accessible,” he added.

Looks like there’s no shortcut to change—or is there?
