Senate President Vicente Sotto III Sotto said the resolution would not, inany way, dictate or impose anything on the Supreme Court and it should also notbe viewed as going against President Rodrigo Duterte. MANILA – The Senate has sought theclarification of the Supreme Court whether their concurrence is not needed inthe termination of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) between the Philippinesand the United States. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilonsaid that he was “saddened” that the Senate cannot get a unanimousvote on a resolution which merely seeks to clarify the constitutionalboundaries of the chamber. The clarification with the high courtwas made after 12 senators voted for the Senate Resolution 337, sponsored inthe plenary by Senate President Vicente Sotto III on late Monday evening. “All that what we’re asking the SupremeCourt is to define our Constitutional boundaries, nothing else. We are notdictating the Supreme Court. We are in fact asking the Supreme Court to rule onthe decision,” the Ilonggo senator said. “The Supreme Court may rule that theSenate’s concurrence is not necessary and that settles the issue. If theSupreme Court rules that Senate concurrence is necessary, again that settlesthe issue,” he added. The Philippine government, upon theorder of President Duterte, has sent the notice of termination of the VFA whichgoverns the conduct of visiting US personnel holding military exercises in thePhilippines./PNlast_img read more
