Duterte : Opposition 'wants to be back in power'

The Duterte administration is indeed under attack from politicians that is not in good stead with President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

President Duterte named the Liberal Party (LP), as the one creating chaos for purposes of destablizing his administration.

“These are the groups, you know, that were elected during the last administration. Lahat ’yan sila served in government. ’Yung iba sa Malacañang. At tanungin mo sa kanila kung ano ang ginawa nila (And ask them what they accomplished) while they were in power,” Duterte said during a press briefing in Pampanga

“Now, sila ’yung gustong bumalik (they want to come back),” the President said.

The President claims that this group makes it appear that he is power hungry tainting the intention of changing the form of government to federal.

The political enemies could not accept that he has already made his intention known- that he is willing to cut short his term for the smooth transition to federalism.

“Noisy and the ambitious”  and cannot wait for him to finish his term, that how the President described his detractors.

“They are free to accept it or not,” he said. “I am elected to serve until 2022, that would be election year.”

Earlier this week the President made a statement regarding him stepping down, which he will not do because he does not want the Vice President – Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo to take over as president, reason? Because she is incompetent.

“Not. It should be election and not succession. She is incompetent to become president,” President Duterte added.     

Yesterday, banners have been hung in different parts of the metro saying “ Welcome to the Philippines, province of China” the intention is with malice since it was also the second year anniversary of the Philippines filed and won against China before the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague involving the exercise of its sovereign rights over the disputed territories on the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).

Malacañang through Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque yesterday said that the government will “continue to assert [its]sovereignty and sovereign rights.”

“Because we continue to assert our sovereignty and sovereign rights. But we decided to move on on issues which are non-controversial because we know that the final resolution particularly on the issue of sovereignty on the disputed islands will take many years to resolve since this was not the subject of the arbitral ruling that we won two years ago,” Palace Spokesman Harry Roque Jr said, referring to the 2nd year anniversary of the Philippines won the arbitral case before the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague.

“They [the enemies of the government]are propagating a lie that we have given up on our national territory. It’s very far from the truth. The President has said repeatedly that we will stand up for what is ours,” Roque added.
