Our citizenship is an identity of participation.
It is important to empower personal freedoms. It is also just as important to enable these personal freedoms to serve in society with other citizens.
As thus, the Philippine State exists.
And invokes for itself a Republic serving among an already free and fair people.
And in their behalf.
Popular leadership is exercised through the virtue of a representative form of government.
That in the Philippine Republic duly represents the people in the formal affairs of the State.
