2019 elections tuloy - Malacañang

“The President always looks to the Constitution as his guiding document. The Constitution sets the date for the next elections in 2019. So unless the Constitution is amended ahead of the 2019 elections, it will have to push through,” paliwanag ni Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque. File

MANILA, Philippines — Siniguro ng Malacañang na matutuloy ang 2019 elections hanggang hindi naaamyendahan ang Konstitusyon sa kabila ng palutang ni House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez na no-election scenario.

“The President always looks to the Constitution as his guiding document. The Constitution sets the date for the next elections in 2019. So unless the Constitution is amended ahead of the 2019 elections, it will have to push through,” paliwanag ni Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque.

Pinalutang ni Alvarez ang posibilidad na “no election 2019” pero para naman kay Senate President Koko Pimentel ay puwede namang matuloy ang eleksyon kahit mangyari ang transition kung sakaling maisulong at maaprubahan ang federal system.

Idinagdag pa ni Ro­que, ipinauubaya ni Pangulong Duterte sa Kongreso ang desisyong ito dahil ang tungkulin naman ng Pa­ngulo ay ipa­tupad lamang ang Konstitusyon at ang umiiral na batas.

“Well, the Chief Exe­cutive, the role of the President is to implement the Constitution and the law. As I said, it is the Cons­titution that sets when the next election is. The law required of Congress for election purposes will only enable the spending of public funds in that regard,” giit pa ni Sec. Roque.

“So unless the Constitution is amended, which includes being ratified by the people prior to the date set in the Constitution, elections will have to push through,” dagdag pa ni Roque.
