THE YOUNG FILIPINOS SHOULD BECOME MORE ACTIVE IN THEIR PARTICIPATION TO THE AFFAIRS OF THEIR GOVERNMENT, ONE DAY THEY TOO WILL BECOME CITIZENS THAT WILL BEAR THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CHOOSING THEIR LEADERS AND MAKNG SURE THEY SERVE IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH THE HOPES AND DREAMS OF THE ORDINARY CITIZENS.

WITH NERI'S RELUCTANCE TO COOPERATE IN THE SENATE INVESTIGATION OF THE ANOMALOUS BROADBAND CONTRACT, IT IS ONLY RIGHT THE STUDENTS EXPRESS THEIR DISSATISFACTION AND DISGUST OVER HIS LACK OF INTEGRITY AND LOYALTY TO THE PEOPLE INSTEAD OF A CORRUPT PRESIDENT.

Student group wants Neri out of CHED

A militant student group called on the government to sack Chairman Romulo Neri of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for neglecting his duties and responsibilities, radio dzMM reported Saturday.

Vencer Crisostomo, national chairman of the League of Filipino Students (LFS) said Neri is a perfect model of a student who has been cutting classes.

He added Neri has been unavailable to hear the grievances and find solutions to the problems hounding college and universities nationwide as he eludes arrest.

Neri has been saddled with an arrest warrant issued by the Senate Blue Ribbon committee for his failure to attend the inquiry into the scrapped $329 million national broadband network deal.

Crisostomo said they want Neri out of CHED before the tuition hike consultations start this February.

He said some universities and colleges have expressed their intention to increase matriculation by more than 10 percent.

The LFS head said the students need a CHED chairman who will listen to the issues and concerns of the higher education sector in the country.

Earlier, embattled Neri filed a petition for certiorari at the Supreme Court (SC) Thursday in a bid to stop the enforcement of an arrest order issued by the Senate.

In a five-page petition, Neri, through lawyer Paul Lentejas, is asking the Supreme Court to stop the Senate from enforcing an arrest order, saying that the enforcement of the order will be an "injustice" to the petitioner, ABS-CBN News correspondent Marieton Pacheco reported.

Neri, in his petition, said that the Senate committed grave abuse of discretion in ordering his arrest.

Neri denied committing any act of contempt against the upper chamber, saying he had merely invoked executive privilege and had already explained to the body his non-appearance during previous Senate hearings.

Neri also said that Senate's issuance of arrest order for him pre-empted the SC's action on a pending petition on the issue and even disrespected the high court.

Meanwhile, the Senate's petition on whether Neri can invoke executive privilege is still pending before the SC.

Lawyer Midas Marquez, SC spokesman, confirmed the status of Neri’s first petition.

The SC en banc had granted last January 22 the Solicitor General's motion for an extension to file its comment.

Earlier, Neri said that he will ask the Supreme Court to nullify an arrest warrant issued by the Senate against him after he refused to appear in the upper chamber's inquiry on the $329 million national broadband network (NBN) deal.

Neri said only the high court can end the debate on whether he still needs to be subjected to another round of questioning about the NBN deal.

Neri said it was not his own decision to refuse to attend the hearings. "I have to follow my superiors. The Senate is not my superior. The superior is the executive, my boss is in the executive."

He said he had told the Senate all he knows about the NBN deal.
