By Azer Parrocha

MANILA (Philippines News Agency) — President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s Consultative Committee (Concom) tasked to draft a Federal Constitution on Tuesday approved in an en banc session the entire proposal which seeks to distribute powers and resources among regions.

The 22-member Concom held an executive session at around 10:15 a.m. and voted to unanimously approve the draft Federal Constitution at around 11:05 a.m. at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City.

The Concom’s draft federal Constitution has 21 articles compared to the 1987 Constitution with 18 articles.

Each member took turns signing the draft Federal Constitution with lone female member lawyer Susan Ubalde-Ordinario being the first signatory.

The rest of the members were called to sign in alphabetical order.

This vote comes over four months after the Concom officially convened on Feb. 19, 2018.

The proposal will be submitted to Duterte on or before July 9, in time for his State of the Nation Address (SONA) on July 23.

Members are taking turns explaining their votes as of posting time. (PNA)
