“Ayaw kong isipin ng mga tao din na maging one-sided tayo. Hindi ito ipapatawag natin puro federalist lang,” he said in an interview at Net-25 on Wednesday night.

(I do not want people to think we are one-sided. Not only federalists, but all political perspectives are welcome.)

“Ipatatawag din natin ang naniniwala sa 1987 Constitution at ito ay gagawin natin ang hearing na ito sa malalayong lugar,” he added without mentioning specific areas.

(We’ll also have to call in the naysayers who think the Constitution of 1987 should be left alone. We want to hold some of our hearings in distant places.
