Duterte impeachment

1. Alejano filed the two impeachment complaints against Duterte for his alleged
role in state-sponsored killings and the Davao Death Squad, as well as his
alleged inaction to uphold the countrys sovereign rights over the West
Philippine Sea, Panatag Shoal and Benham Rise amid the administrations
cooling of ties with China.

a) Representative Gary Alejano

b) No, because two impeachment complaints lodged against President

Rodrigo Duterte for insufficiency in substance. The committee had a
heated debate following Majority Leader Rudy Farias statement that
Alejanos impeachment complaints were based on news reports and
testimonies of other witnesses, which means the impeachment filer
Alejano had no personal knowledge on the matter.
Farias said it is clear Alejano had no personal knowledge on his
allegation over 8,000 drug suspects have been killed in the
administrations brutal war on drugs.

2. Respected opposition congressmen Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin and Albay

Rep. Edcel Lagman protest the impeachment complaint by Atty. Lorenzo
Gadon against Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno. They argue it cannot be
sufficient in form because it is based on newspaper clippings, the same
argument used to dismiss the impeachment complaint by Rep. Gary Alejano
against Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.

a) Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin and Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman

b) Yes, bec found they have sufficiency of grounds in the
impeachment complaint lodged against Chief Justice Maria
Lourdes Sereno.
why constitutional the fundamental law of land?

Any countrys Constitution is the fundamental law of the land because it is the source
of all law for the country because all laws passed will have to articulate and comply with
the requirements and principles set out in the Constitution.

Lets make an analogy. If your household has the guiding principle that decisions are to
be taken as a family rather than individually, then thats the constitution of your family.
That means any decisions made even by one member would necessarily have to bear
in mind the interest of the family as a whole.

what is your role in civil society?

To work to achieve your goals, provided they are not hurting others and staying (mostly)
within the law.
