Erin Tañada: Cha-cha will lead to dictatorship

Jul 25, 2018 @ 17:07

Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada on July 23 said the Duterte administration’s push for charter change is not about the shift to federalism but about dictatorship.

The Quezon politiko said Cha-Cha is the Duterte administration’s “brazen attempt to hold on to power forever.”

“Pilit sinasabi ng kasalukuyang administrasyon: Tungkol sa Federalismo ang Charter Change. Fake news ito. Ang totoo: Diktadurya ang layunin ng Charter Change na ito. Term extension. At kung papalusutin nga natin, baka pati na No Elections,” Tañada said.

He also said this is not the right time to change the Constitution.

“Naninindigan tayo sa dignidad ng bawat tao. Naninindigan tayo para sa buhay at sa kabuhayan ng bawat Pilipino; sa karapatan nating mangarap, at magsikap upang abutin ang mga pangarap na ito; sa lipunang kayang tugunan ang mga pangunahin nating pangangailangan. Naninindigan tayo: Maaabot ang mga mithiing ito sa isang malaya at tunay na demokratikong lipunan,” Tañada said.

“Ito ang mga dahilan kung bakit mariin tayong kumokontra sa Charter Change,” he added.
