Doctrine of Proper Submission

Plebiscite may be held on the same day as regular election (Gonzales v. COMELEC, GR No. L-28196, November 9, 1967), provided the people are sufficiently informed of the amendments to be voted upon, to conscientiously deliberate thereon, to express their will in a genuine manner. Submission of piece-meal amendments is unconstitutional. All amendments must be submitted for ratification at one plebiscite only. The people have to be given a proper frame of reference in arriving at their decision. (Tolentino v. COMELEC, GR No. L-34150, October 16, 1971)
