Federalism is being pushed by lawmakers and civil society groups in this country. Upon knowing this, Germany is willing to help the Philippines. They said that Fedderalism help their nation to fight against dictatorship.
“We are happy to share our experience with a federal system and contribute to discussions in other countries,” Michael Hasper, charge d’ affairs of the German Embassy in Manila said.
“In Germany, our present federal constitution is also popular because it was introduced as a tool to end dictatorship. When the Nazis established their authoritarian regime, they broke with our federal traditions and introduced a centralized system. And when we reintroduced democracy in Germany after the Nazi regime, the reintroduction of federalism and a federal constitution became key,” he added.
