Vera Files created a data-driven infographic that fleshes out the ‘Federal Republic of the Philippines’ under the draft constitution of the Consultative Committee.
Two years after winning on a campaign pushing for a change in the country’s form of government, President Rodrigo Duterte is a step closer to his vision of a Federal Philippines.
On July 9, the 22-member Consultative Committee created to review the 1987 Constitution submitted to the chief executive its draft revision of the fundamental law of the land. (Read statement of the Consultative Committee.)
Based on this draft, VERA Files is publishing a series of fact sheets highlighting notable items that were changed, added or deleted in the 1987 Constitution. (Read full text of the proposed constitution.)
