“One of the staunchest defenders of House Resolution 1109 seeking to convene a constituent assembly even without the Senate turned the tables on those opposing it, saying they are driven by self-interest.
“'HR 1109 puts fear on them that there may be changes,” said Nueva Ecija Representative Rodolfo Antonino, adding that among those in the forefront of protests are potential candidates for senator and president in next year’s election.
“'Whatever they’re thinking of is for their self-interest . . . we should divest ourselves of our self-interests because if we don’t, then we will not be able to engage in dialogue . . .,' Antonino said in press conference Monday.”
