Honoring and Commemorating the Delegates to the Constitutional Conventions that transformed Philippines
We filed Senate Resolution 585 Honoring and Commemorating the Delegates to the Constitutional Conventions that transformed Philippine political landscape, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1971 Constitutional Convention, which was unanimously adopted by the Senate. Our Constitutional Conventions became a breeding ground for illustrious names in Philippine politics, legal luminaries, and respected leaders that guided the country in the course of its history.
It is important for the youth to look into constitutional history so that when the future calls for a revision or an amendment to the Constitution, they can improve on it. By inculcating in our citizenry especially the youth the examples of the delegates to our Constitutional Convention, we may be able to develop among them an active and knowledgeable citizenry, who are advocates of democracy and liberty, and who will be stewards of our country by being active in public discourses about our current predicaments and the future in order to build a national consensus thereon.
