Duterte can RUN AGAIN for SIMILAR POSITION and remain IN CONTROL for 8 more years -Julio Teehankee





If the Consultative Committee's present draft government constitution is approved, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte can run again for a similar position and conceivably remain in control for 8 more years.

This was Julio Teehankee, Consultative Committee's member interpretation of the draft in a meeting disclosed on One News Channel on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.



"There's no ban so they (incumbent officials) can run under a new constitution. Because it's like a reboot, it's a reset," he said in a mix of English and Filipino.




The Con-Com's proposed new sanction discounts term augmentation for Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo however does not disallow them from looking for re-decision when the new contract produces results.


Under the 1987 Constitution, Duterte and Robredo can't look for re-decision. But since the Con-Com's draft constitution sets a term of 4 years for President and VP and enables them to serve a greatest of two terms, Duterte could conceivably be in control for 8 more years.

Normally, this change design would incorporate arrangements and supervision over the May 2022 surveys.



Duterte, in any case, has much of the time said that he will resign from politics after he completes his present term.
