Q: Ma’am, former Chief Justice Puno said that he is pushing for Charter Change. Will this make you rethink your position?
VALTE: Well, no, because the President has always been consistent in saying that nobody has been able to present an argument to prove that there really is urgency in changing the Constitution, and that again, not doing so would place the country at risk. But having said that, I believe that the former Chief Justice said that democracy is on a stretcher. We’d like to respond by saying that democracy is already in the recovery room as of May 2010.
True, most apt, and nicely phrased.
