Question: Give brief summary of the 1986 Provisional "Freedom" Constitution of the philippines
The 1986 Provisional "Freedom" Constitution of the Philippines was established after the ouster of President Ferdinand Marcos during the People Power Revolution. It was enacted by then-President Corazon Aquino on March 25, 1986, via Proclamation No. 3. This provisional constitution replaced the 1973 Constitution and aimed to restore democratic rule and reestablish fundamental civil liberties in the country. The Freedom Constitution had four main provisions: 1. The President exercised her legislative powers until a new Congress was elected. 2. The President had the power to create a Constitutional Commission tasked with drafting a new, permanent constitution. 3. All existing laws remained in force, except when they were inconsistent with the provisions of the Freedom Constitution or if they were repealed by the President. 4. The President could adopt measures to protect the people's human rights, including the creation of a Presidential Committee on Human Rights. The Freedom Constitution served as the transitional charter until the ratification of the 1987 Philippine Constitution, which continues to be the current constitution of the country.
