Palace: Con-con up to Comelec

Malacañang distanced itself from the approval of a House resolution calling for a constitutional convention and the election of delegates to be held simultaneous with the presidential elections next year.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo said it is up to the Commission on Elections to decide if the holding of simultaneous elections would be feasible.

“Kasi sila naman talaga ang institution who is in charge of this. They should know better,” Fajardo said.

Voting 6-1, the House committee on constitutional amendments proposed Con-con as the mode to amend the Constitution. The committee is considering the election of six sectoral representatives for every region or a total of 291 delegates to the Con-con.

But Fajardo said the smooth sailing of the regular elections is more important as far as Malacanang is concerned.

“We should not lose focus, the primary objective is the 2010 elections and especially that medyo bago yung poll automation…baka mag create ng confusion kung dadagdagan pa po natin ng con con elections,” she said. By: Tess Bedico - People's Journal
