Senate Secretary Oscar Yabes in his Opening Remarks before the Asian Regional Consultative Meeting in Manila said, "The Philippine Senate shares the IPU's belief that parliaments are the cornerstones of democracy and that strong democracy can only be achieved by having better parliaments. Thus, I believe that parliaments need to be empowered so they would have the means to carry out their constitutional functions, most important of which is to be the legitimate voice of the people they represent."

Aquino asked Congress to review these decrees, as they were created then to favor Marcos cronies. "We are required to follow them: Whoever constructs infrastructure in those areas must be in partnership with the corporation of Mr. Marcos’ friend. Even worse: every time they add even just another short section to the original road, their franchise is extended by thirty years. That is not the end of it: Once the company profited, the development of infrastructure in the area was left unfinished."
