In the SOLGEN’s prayer, they asked the Court to “Clarify and include in the dispositive that the LGUs would start receiving the adjusted IRA in 2022.” The SOLGEN, thus, admits in its Prayer that the Court has, in fact, not included in its final dispositive ruling that its decision will be implemented only in 2022.

The Supreme Court has denied the SOLGEN’s Motion for reconsideration and has issued its ‘Entry of Final Judgment’ stating therein that its July 3, 2018 en banc decision has already “lapsed into finality” on June 10, 2019. The Court also denied the LGUs’ claim for payment on the “IRA arrears” for the period 1991 to June 10, 2019.

Is People’s Initiative even legal?  YES!  Sec. 21, Article XVII of the 1987 Constitution guarantees the right of the people to amend it.  And although said provision is not self-executory, Congress passed an enabling law, RA 67352 in 1989.  Otherwise, if up to now there is still no enabling law after 31 years, then Congress has continuously been terribly remiss in complying with this Constitutional mandate to provide for the implementation of the right of the people to initiate amendments to the so-called “People Power Charter” wherein the sovereign will of the people is supreme as enshrined it the Preamble itself!  Even in the hierarchy of the three ways provided under ‘Amendments or Revisions’, people’s initiative is the supreme mode than through a constituent assembly or constitutional convention.
