Bayan leader slams Duterte's threat to declare Martial Law

The President decided to extend the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in the National Capital Region, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, and several other provinces until May 15.
During the same public address the President warned that he may declare martial law if the NPA’s atrocities continues unhampered.

“Maybe I will declare martial law. Ikaw na NPA, numero uno, hinaharang ang tulong sa tao, pati supply ng pagkain nila. Kaya I’m now warning everybody and putting notice sa AFP pati pulis. I might declare martial law and there will be no turning back kung ano ang martial law na klase na gagawin ko,” Duterte said.

Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) secretary general Renato Reyes, Jr. said there are enough mechanisms to address encounters between state troops and communist rebels.

Reyes claims that Duterte is “diverting” the public’s attention with threats of martial law amid the problems brought about by the novel coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19 like: "inadequate mass testing, slow social amelioration for the poor, the economic slowdown and the relentless assaults on human rights."
"Why devote so much airtime on the NPA and Martial Law? These issues were hardly tackled and they are so much more important with the extension of the ECQ (enhanced community quarantine) in many areas of the country," he said.
