De Lima on Duterte's threat to declare RevGov : 'Para na syang isang asong ulol'




Detained Opposition Senator Leila De Lima did not let this issue pass without slamming President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
The opposition senator  accused Duterte of disregarding the rule of law after the President gave the statement atht he will declare  a revolutionary government and suspend the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus.
The President issued this threat after Senate Minority Floor Leader and Liberal Party stalwart Franklin Drilon urged him to be careful in the review of all government contracts and loan agreements.

"Para na syang isang asong ulol. Threatening to declare a 'revolutionary war' (whatever that is) and jail critics," De Lima said in a handwritten statement from her office.
"This President does not really care about the Constitution and the rule of law. All he cares about is his psychotic self," she added.
The country, she said, needs a "revolution of conscience among the enablers and all others who still cannot see or refuse to see through the moral bankruptcy of this regime."

Field Day for the Opposition

The issue gave the opposition a way or reason in attacking the President, some senatorial candidates of the Otso Diretso relished the fact that it was media mileage for them most especially that majority if not all are out of the magic 12 if we are going to believe the surveys.
The Vice President Maria Leonor ‘Leni’ Robredo will be stepping up and assume the presidency in case the revolutionary government is declared, this as per another senatorial hopeful of the Otdo Diretso , election lawyer Atty. Romulo Macalintal.
