PH Supreme Court to decide constitutionality of EDCA

By Ina Reformina, ABS-CBN News

Does the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement between the Philippines and United States violate the Philippines’ constitution?

This is the question that the Philippine Supreme Court must address as oral arguments begin.

EDCA will allow the access of more U.S. troops to Philippine facilities where they can preposition ships and planes.

As Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno pointed out, that is military help that the Philippine Armed Forces needs badly.

    EDCA is unconstitutional or constitutional , who cares, you need US presence in PH. We can not defend alone, our territory against China, simple as that.
