The Consultative Committee (Con-Com) has agreed, on the subcommittee level, to require “a college degree or its equivalent” under its proposed federal constitution to be submitted to President Duterte before his State of the Nation Address this July. Con-Com Senior Technical Assistant Conrado Generoso explained during the media briefing on March 20 that the equivalency provision can be traced back to Executive Order No. 330 issued during the Ramos Administration, which authorizes the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to certify “pertinent work experiences and knowledge or expertise acquired by individuals from high-level, non-formal and informal training toward the awarding of an appropriate academic degree”, among other stipulated in Sec. 2 of the said EO.

The Consultative Committee is pushing for additional academic credentials for senatorial bets under the proposed federal constitution. Senatoriables must have at least a college degree or its equivalent.
