In the case of the Lambino Group’s petition, there’s not a single word, phrase,or sentence of text of the proposed changes in the signature sheet. Neither does thesignature sheet state that the text of the proposed changes is attached to it. Thesignature sheet merely asks question whether the people approve a shift from theBicameral-Presidential to the Unicameral- Parliamentary system of government. Thesignature sheet does not show to the people the draft of the proposed changesbefore they are asked to sign the signature sheet.Article XVII of the Constitution speaks of three modes of amending theConstitution. The first mode is through Congress upon three-fourths vote of all itsmembers. Second is through a constitutional convention. Last thing is through apeople’s initiative. The two elements of initiative. First, the people must author and
thus sign the entire proposal. Second, as an initiative upon a petition, the proposalmust be embodied in a petition.Citizenship #6Citizenship was the position or status of being a citizen of a particular person in acountry. If I’m an American can I be a candidate in Philippines? Is it good to hold acountry even though my blood is American? Like Eduardo Manzano is a natural citizenand qualified as vice mayor of Makati. Mercado was a candidate for the position of vicemayor and the total voting’s gap is doesn’t even so far and it counts 3 thousand votescausing Mercado seeking about Manzano’s Citizenship.The issue here is the respondent Eduardo Manzano is an American Citizenbased on the record of the Bureau of Immigration. The respondent admitted that he isregistered as a foreigner, he was born on 1935 of a pure Filipino Mother and Father andborn in San Francisco, California, USA, considered as an AmericanCitizen based onUnited States of America based on situation of the respondent it is under by their lawwhich is “jus soli” which means although he is a pure Filipino but he’s born on the landof the United States of America. On the other hand his status being an American Citizenwas not lost at the same time being a Filipino Citizen which means he’s holding a dualcitizenship. Despite of that, he is qualified for the position of vice mayor and filed a certificateof candidacy but according to the government holding dual status or citizenship are
disqualified for running any elective local position. Therefore the respondent isdisqualified being a dual citizenship.Suffrage #7How can I vote if I’m in another country? How can I support my liked party-list? What should I do if I’m not in my own country, but still I have to vote a candidate? Who’sthe right to vote me on the day of election, is it counted or not? We’re OFW’s is thereany problem or we are the reasons because of suffrage in the election?

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
