This Just In

The Supreme Court just announced that it was not buying into the argument that there was a groundswell of support among the Filipinos for charter change. Hopefully, this will establish once and for all that elections will be held, as scheduled on May 2007.

This development is an important one because if this initiative to alter the constitution had passed then party list representation would have been modified. I am seriously mulling a run to represent the millions of overseas Filipinos who do not have a single representative in the present congress. Party list representation was established to give an opportunity for perennially under-represented sectors of society to participate in the political processes of the country.
