NENE PIMENTEL: Revgov ‘an outrageous suggestion’

05:03 AM September 11, 2018

As an avid exponent of the proposal to adopt federalism in our country, I do want the system embodied in our Constitution changed the soonest possible.

But, I am alarmed by the stand of one top official of the Department of the Interior and Local Government, who is pushing for a revolutionary government (RevGov), ostensibly to facilitate the adoption of the federal system in our country (“Revolutionary gov’t pushed,” 9/8/18) .


That is an outrageous suggestion, to say the least.

It is also unsavory, undemocratic, unconstitutional.


I hope the interior secretary can rein in the overzealousness of his subalterns.

Otherwise, the merits of the federalism proposal could be derailed by those baseless commentaries that might have, in fact, been fueled by motives other than the best interests of our country and people.
