Cha-cha during a pandemic? Unacceptable

/ 04:03 AM January 13, 2021

Whatever justifications or diversionary antics the present Congress may dish out to revive attempts to amend the 1987 Constitution, these will not be acceptable to our people still reeling against the menace that is COVID-19 (and its dreaded variant), and the evil of official corruption and ineptitude.

Considering the credibility baggage that our so-called lawmakers have been carrying so far, entrusting the critical task of amending the Constitution to them or their constituent assembly may be likened to throwing the already emaciated body of Juan dela Cruz into a river teeming with rapacious crocodiles. No to Cha-cha!
