Hi! I am grateful about how informative and interactive the people in this forum can be. I hope we could have a good discussion about the differences between an, “Executive Order and Presidential Decree,” in the purview of our laws in the Philippines. I often wonder about their differences. Any one of you who would share your knowledge on this matter would be much appreciated. cheers
