Senator Imee Marcos couldn’t hide her resentment against an individual who said that the senate has no business with the controversial People’s Initiative being pushed by the Congress.
On January 30, 2024, Marcos led the hearing launched by the Committee on Electoral Reforms and People’s Participation against People’s Initiative.
According to her, modern science would never cure the shamelessness of the said individual whom believed to be House Speaker Martin Romualdez.
It can be recalled that Romualdez also said that senators do not have a right to interfere with the People’s Initiative to change the constitution.
“Maaring masaya tayo ngayon dahil akala natin napagpahinga na natin ang usapin sa People’s Initiative nila pero hangga’t hindi ito naihihimlay, babangon muli ito upang maging multo,” she said.
“Ang sinumang magsabi na walang paki ang Senado sa usapang ito, isa lang ang masasabi ko, walang gamot sa kakapalan ng mukha mo,” she added.
The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) suspended any activities related to the People’s Initiative following the criticism received by the campaign from former President Rodrigo Duterte and lawmakers.
