LACSON PUSHES FOR THE PASSAGE OF BILL NAMING PRESIDENT’S ‘DESIGNATED SURVIVOR’.

Senator Panfilo Lacson on Monday called on his colleagues to start discussions on a bill authorizing the President to name a “designated survivor,” as he called the recent withdrawal of the measure in the House of Representatives “unfortunate.”

Lacson said the process to pass Senate Bill No. 982 seeking to guarantee the continuity and stability of government operations should be started immediately as to “avert a potential constitutional crisis and leadership vacuum.”

Lacson pointed out that under Art. VII, Sec. 7 of the 1987 Constitution, “Congress shall, by law, provide for the manner in which one who is to act as President shall be selected until a President or a Vice-President shall have qualified, in case of death, permanent disability, or inability of the officials mentioned in the next preceding paragraph.”

Another provision of the Constitution, he further said, provides that “Congress shall, by law, provide who shall serve as President in case of death, permanent disability, or resignation of the Acting President.”
