Its up to Pres. Duterte if he will declare a Revolutionary Gov't - PNP Chief

The Commander in Chief will decide not us.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte upon returning from his historic trip to Israel and Jordan, warned the public that there are three forces that are very keen in planning to oust him following the chaos brought by the revocation of Trillanes’ amnesty : Trillanes himself, the “Yellows” or the “Liberals” referring to the opposition Liberal Party and the polibutro- the executive committee for communist parties.

Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, Director General Oscar Albayalde made a statement that he will let the president decide if the prevailing issues will amount to a declaration of revolutionary government.

The President at the Davao airport announced that there are plots to oust him as President this coming October after the revocation of the opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes  IV’s amnesty created a lot of criticisms from the public.

“Depende ‘yan no (It depends), it’s not ours to decide dahil hindi level ng PNP ‘yan (because it is not on the PNP’s level). I think that will be on the level of the Commander-in-Chief,” the PNP chief said.

“I’m sure he has his security advisers kung talagang magdecide siya na magkaroon ng (if ever he really decide to have a) revolutionary government,” he explained.

Opposition senator earlier said that President Duterte was planning to declare a revolutionary government to advance his interest following the revocation of his amnesty. Trillanes  said that such move won’t gather support from the Armed Forces of the Philippines  and the Philippine National Police.

Malacañang has assured that the President has no plans of forming a revolutionary government since it is only for countries “without constitutional mandate.”

November last year, Duterte first brought the idea of declaring a revolutionary government to prevent the opposition from creating chaos in the streets and from eventually seizing power again. The president eventually took it back when the military opposed the idea of having to be in a revolutionary government.

  1. Tama yan para matuto ang mga tao magdesiplina, at mabawasan ang kuroption sa bansa at umangat ang Aring bansa.

  2. Dapat yan, the President needs extra ordinary powers to fix this country.
