MANILA - Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte believes President Aquino will not change his position on Charter change.

Valte's statement comes after Quezon City congressman Sonny Belmonte, a shoo-in for House Speaker in the 16th Congress, filed a resolution proposing amendments to the economic provisions of the Constitution.

If approved, Belmonte's proposal will allow Congress to relax restrictions on foreign investments by mere legislation.

But Valte said amending the Constitution is not a priority for Aquino.
