Imee Marcos: Congress has No Power to Deprive Citizens of Constitutional Rights

Congress





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Governor Imee Marcos was a former legislator. She knows that the power of legislative inquiry does not give Congress the power to deprive any citizen of constitutional rights. This includes the rights to freedom of movement. As well as the presumption of innocence.

3-in-1 is Tyranny

The governor explains that when Congress acts as investigator, prosecutor and judge rolled into one, it is legislative tyranny. The principle of separation of powers prevents that from happening. However, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez shows his being a tyrant by threatening to dissolve the Supreme Court or impeach the Chief Justice. The President once said that Alvarez has the tendency to act more superior than him.




Congress has No Power

She added that the 1987 Constitution did not authorize the Congress to “act as a prosecutorial or judicial body that determines the innocence or guilt of anyone for any charge of misconduct.” There is a clear violation of human rights here. There’s no way that the President would tolerate this as a popular democratic leader. He knows that his power is from the people, unlike Alvarez.




Supreme Court has the Say

“The judicial system, not Congress, is constitutionally empowered to do so,” she said. She cites Alvarez and Pimentel’s threats. Marcos admits that she can suffer the same fate as the six Ilocos Norte employees and officials. They are held by the House Sergeant-at-Arms office since May 29 for allegedly not rightfully answering questions during the inquiry. However, they may do this only through local arrest from her own hometown.









Above the Law

Some Congressmen is the House of Representatives are into power abuse in a major way. They probably think that they can get away with it. The people are not so keen on understanding the Constitution. This practice is rampant during the Aquino administration. That broke the spirits of good public servants like the late CJ Corona. This time, it’s the people against these abusive lawmakers who are fond of using the saying; “no one is above the law” to their advantage. They tend to forget laws exist. Marcos is here to remind them.

Enrile: 1987 Constitution Prevents Repetition of Cory Aquino’s Complaints over Ferdinand Marcos

constitution





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Martial Law is military rule regardless of which administration it is under, said Senator Juan Ponce Enrile. In the constitution, the people are authorizing the military to topple illegal violence, terrorism or not. The late President Cory Aquino made sure that in the 1987 constitution her complaints with the late Ferdinand Marcos won’t be repeated.

More than Just a Rebellion

The current situation in Marawi City is more than just a rebellion because it is ideological. Worst, a religious problem which is Wahhabism, a kind of fanatical Islamism which is propagated by Saudi Arabia. That is being taught in Madrassas in Mindanao.




Pro-Martial Law

Enrile, who was the former defense minister during the martial law of the late President Marcos sides for Du30’s Mindanao martial law. This is in the exercise of the Chief Executive’s constitutional mandate to fight the enemies of the State and control the peace, he said.




Not Authoritarian

Enrile explains that it is only Congress that can stop the President to continue martial law. This is ‘’if they have the votes.’’ The military must explain the basis of Mindanao martial law. Speaker of the House, Pantaleon Alvarez, however, said that they cannot out-vote the president because they have the number for pro-martial lawmakers.









The Danger

Senator Enrile thinks that Aquino’s move was pathetic. It did not consider situations where the country is in great danger. The new constitution also disregards having a reliable and strong president to finish off all kinds of violence in the country. He confirmed that the problem can only be solved if the culprits are all eliminated.
