"It was a day of ignominy,” said a progressive member of the Philippine House of Representatives, the lower House of Congress.
On 2 June 2009, House Resolution 1109 was railroaded through the House of Representatives by majority congressmen who are loyal to Manila President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. HR 1109 proposes to transform the House into a Constituent Assembly (“Con-Ass”) for the purpose of amending the Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines.
