Sinabi ni Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero na hindi maitatanggi ni House Speaker Martin Romualdez na wala siyang kinalaman sa isinusulong na people’s initiative o PI.

Ayon kay Escudero may video siya nang pag-anunsiyo ni Romualdez na ang pag-amyenda sa 1987 Constitution ay magsisimula sa people’s initiative.

Ginawa ni Romualdez ang anunsiyo sa Philippine Economic Briefing sa Iloilo noong nakaraang Disyembre 11.

“We are thinking right now of addressing the procedural gap or question on as to how we amend the Constitution. We will highly recommend that we embark on a people’s initiative to cure this impasse, so to speak, on how we vote. And I hope we can undertake this as soon as possible, so we could have some clarity on the procedures,” ani Romualdez sa pagtitipon.

Sinabi din nito: “So, we would like to amend the Constitution vis-à-vis how we procedurally amend the same. And that’s either we vote jointly or separately, we would like to have the result by and through People’s Initiative.”

Sinabi ni Escudero na malinaw na ang isinusulong ay “politico’s initiative” at hindi people’s initiative.

“How can Speaker Romualdez deny he is not behind this ‘pekeng initiative’ when he bragged about it last December and took credit for it?” ang X post ni Escudero kasabay nang pag-post ng 45-second video clip ni Romualdez ukol sa  Charter change.

“History has taught us that nothing good comes out from anything that begins with a lie,” dagdag pa nito.
