Will federalism work in ph? Tommy Osmeña weighs in

It’s not actually a magic solution that will instantly wipe out the country’s problems.

Mayor Tomas “Tommy” Osmeña made listeners of his speech think deeper about their views on federalism. The politiko has been invited to deliver the welcome remarks for the Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas Negros Oriental Provincial Congress 2018 held in Cebu City.

“Do you believe in Federalism? It depends. You have to make an intelligent decision,” Osmeña told the group just before they started their three-day discussion on federalism.

The proposed change in the form of government has shot to fame under President Rodrigo Duterte, with his allies suddenly championing the shift to a federal system.

“Federalism is not an issue whether it is good or bad. In my experience in government service, solution is only 20 percent and implementation is 80 percent,” the politiko said.

What a think piece!
