Robredo's Martial Law is back; Panelo- "Not Really"

Malacanang reacts to the statement of Vice President Maria Leonor ‘Leni” Robredo when she made the statement the country has u-turned to martial law same that of when former President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was the chief executive.

“I cannot even see the connection why are they saying that,” Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo told reporters of Malacañang Press Corps.

Atty. Panelo clears the idea that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has dictatorial tendencies.

“Dictatorial tendencies, like what?” he asked. “We’re not going back to martial law regime. Certainly not.”

Panelo said the opposition might be talking about something that they were not able to do during their regime.

“Baka ‘yun ang gusto nila noon na hindi nila nagawa. Yung bumalik sa martial law (They may have wanted to do that — to bring back martial law),” he said.

The Aquino matriarch followed the governance of the country after Marcos was ousted in power.

“Hindi ba Cory was installed as a dictator. Di ba naging dictator siya. I mean hindi nyo alam? Di ba revolutionary government, one woman rule at that time,” he added. “But definitely we’re not going back there. Baka sila gusto.”

The Presidential Spokesperson laments that Aquino and his allies were only frustrated and wanted to pass to the current administration what they were not able to accomplish during their tenure.

“Lahat naman nang niri-raise nila puro walang basis eh. They were only citing the case of De Lima and Trillanes, but these are violations of law he said.

“What I’m saying is kaya siguro inaakusahan nila si President baka nung panahon nila gusto nilang bumalik na sila yung one-man rule, na hindi nila nagawa (What I’m saying is they are accusing the President because they wanted to go back to the one-man rule that they weren’t able to do during their time),” Panelo reiterated.
