WAITING TO BE INDISPOSED

Must media really report every check-up, headache, toothache, backache and other trivial maladies the president suffers? Must the Office of the Vice President keep on posting a statement every time, reminding people that as per the constitution, a VP is the next one in line and can’t be replaced by any other person the president wishes to appoint? It’s not like it’s obvious. It’s not like the sickness is life-threatening.

Just to remind everyone Section 12, Article VII of the 1973 Constitution states:

“In case of serious illness of the President, the public shall be informed of the state of his health. The members of the Cabinet in charge of national security and foreign relations and the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines shall not be denied access to the President during such illness.”

Repeat. Serious illness.
