>>50K-100K ang multa!!! >>Barangay Recall Elections- dapat lang!!!

50K-100K ang multa – Patay kayong mga nambabastos ng ating pambansang awit, malaki-laki ang multa. Mula singkwenta mil hanggang isan-daang libong piso o (P50,000 up to P100,000). Ito ang nilalalman ng kamakailan lang na pinasa na Kongreso na batas:

“MANILA — The House of Representatives has approved on third and final reading the measure updating the rules on the correct rendition of the national anthem Lupang Hinirang, and requiring everyone to sing along when it is played in public.

House Bill No. 5224 also seeks to impose stiff penalties of P50,000 to P100,000 on “any person who, or entity which violates any provision” of the proposed law—much heftier than the P5,000 to P20,000 fine provided for by the current Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines.

Under the proposed measure, singing along when the anthem is played at public gatherings “shall be mandatory and must be done with fervor.” It may be noted the current flag code, enacted in 1998, did not use the word “mandatory” when it directed public attendees to sing along during gatherings.

As a sign of respect, all persons must stand at attention facing the Philippine flag, if displayed, or the band or conductor; civilians salute the flag with their right palm over the left chest.

But, the House bill also seeks to provide leeway for people whose religious beliefs prohibit them from singing. The current flag code did not contain any provision, while the House measure states these people “must, nonetheless, show full respect… by standing at attention.”

Kaya ayan sige, para sa mga bastos na akala mo kung sino sila na hindi man lang makapagbigay ng kaukulan respeto sa ating bandila at pambansang await, maghanda –handa na kayo ng inyong pang multa.

Who may exercise the power of recall? The power of recall for loss of confidence shall be exercised by the registered voters of a local government unit (LGU) to which the local elective official subject to such recall belongs.

What are the legal provisions governing the process of recall? Section 3, Article X of the Constitution provides that “Congress shall enact a local government code which shall provide for a more responsive and accountable local government structure instituted through a system of decentralization with effective mechanisms of recall, initiative, and referendum xxx.” This is fleshed out in Republic Act No. 7160, also known as the Local Government Code of 1991, as amended by R.A. 9244.

How is the recall process initiated? The recall of any elective provincial, city, municipal or barangay official shall be commenced by a petition of a registered voter in the LGU concerned and supported by the registered voters in the LGU concerned during the election in which the local official sought to be recalled was elected. The preparatory recall assembly was already removed as a means of initiating the recall process.

What are the required percentage of registered voters who must sign the petition?
1. At least 25% in the case of LGUs with a voting population of not more than 20,000.
