"pril 99 A group of senators in the Philippines challenged the constitutionality of the budgetary allocation of P86 billion for debt servicing which compared to P27 billion for education. The onstitution of the Philippines obliges the government to assign the highest budgetary priority to education. The ourt found that education had constituted the highest allocation apart from debt servicing which was necessary to safeguard the creditworthiness of the country and the survival of its ecomomy. !n ma"ing its decision, the ourt stated# $There can be no %uestion as to the patriotism and good motive of petitioners in filing this petition. &nfortunately, the petition must fail on the constitutional and legal issues raised. As to whether or not the country should honor its international debt, more especially the enormous amount that had been incurred by the past administration, which appears to be the ultimate ob'ective of the petition, is not an issue that is presented or proposed to be addressed by the ourt. !ndeed, it is more of a political decision for ongress and the ()ecutive to determine in the e)ercise of their wisdom and sound discretion.* The application was unsuccessful. +acts, Petitioner senators %uestion the constitutionality of the automatic appropriation for debt service in the -../ budget which was authori0ed by P1 8-. Petitioners see" that 2-3 P1 8-, P1 --77 24ec 5-3, and P1 -.67 be declared unconstitutional, and 223 restrain the disbursement for debt service under the -../ budget pursuant to said decrees. 6hile respondents contend that the petition involves a political %uestion 2repeal7amendment of said laws3 #ssue$ %hether or not su&'e(t la)s has &een implie*l+ repeale* &+ the 9,7 Constitution 89. 2-3. 6ell:"nown is the rule that repeal or amendment by implication is frowned upon.

The legislative intention in ;.A. 8o. <86/, as amended, 4ection 5- of P.1. 8o. --77 and P.1. 8o. -.67 is that the amount needed should be automatically set aside in order to enable the ;epublic of the Philippines to pay the principal, interest, ta)es and other normal ban"ing charges on the loans, credits or indebtedness incurred as guaranteed by it when they shall become due without the need to enact a separate law appropriating funds therefor as the need arises. The purpose of these laws is to enable the government to ma"e prompt payment and7or advances for all loans to protect and maintain the credit standing of the country.
