Former Chief Justice Hilario Davide’s fear flashes on TV screens; I’m sure that if Du30 runs as Federal transition president, he will win. If Bongbong Marcos runs as Vice President, he can easily win as well, he said. Contrary to Davide’s worry, this is actually what the majority wants. The pro-Marcos-Du30 supporters’ massive presence can’t be denied. They have displayed their number on many occasions like the INC’s longest sentence that bag’s the Guinness world record. INC members voted solely for Marcos as VP during the 2016 election – plus the over 16 million voters of the President.

[VIDEO]: President Rodrigo Du30 now wants someone else to lead the transition to a federal system of government so he can step down as soon as a new constitution is ratified through a plebiscite.
The Palace Announcement
The Palace reveals that President Rodrigo Du30 wants an election for the federal transition government leader. “I instructed Consultative Committee to elect a transitional President. I am willing to cut my term to be co-terminus with the start of the transition period. Committee agreed,” Presidential spokesman Harry Roque confirms this. “It’s to remove all suspicions and I am tired. Ready to give it to somebody else,” the President added.
Presidential Term is Shortened and NOT Extended
The transition period toward the federal government is set to start in 2019. That would mean Du30’s six-year term would be reduced to just three. The Consultative Committee reviews the 1987 Constitution then hands over its draft proposal of the Federal Constitution to the President recently.
Words from the Congress
The Congress’ Deputy Speaker Gwendolyn Garcia said that the House would give priority to the proposal after the resumption of sessions next week. It fuels suspicion that President’s majority allies would declare a House-alone constituent assembly that would amend the Constitution.
Speculations Thrown to Discourage the Du30-Marcos Federal Tandem
Davide, one of the framers of the 1987 Constitution stresses that a federal system of government will be anti-poor because it will burden the people with double taxation. The conniving Pulse Asia survey also reports that the majority of the Filipinos are not in favor of the federal change. However, it is also evident in the latest national election that the people just don’t care with the contradictory statements of the opposition. Most voters trust the President. If he does not want succession because his current VP is incompetent, then let it be Marcos.
