Approval of the Anti-Terror Act, indication of Duterte's strong political will




Several senators who are known allies of the President lauds such historic act, when the latter signed the bill which will make the Anti-Terrorism Act a law.

The signing into law of the controversial measure have been called "timely" and "historic" because the measure is needed to support the country's "economic rejuvenation" during the coronavirus pandemic.


"I am glad the President has sifted through the rubble and saw the importance of the law," Senate President Vicente Sotto III said.

"[It is] very timely and historic as it is a measure needed by our nation," Sen. Francis Tolentino told reporters in a separate occasion.

"It just goes to show that a stable peace and order climate should go hand [in hand] with economic rejuvenation post-COVID-19. We should all support this measure," he said.

Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson, who co-authored the measure in the Senate, said credit goes to President Duterte.

"With all the pressure coming from different directions against the signing of the Anti-Terrorism Bill into law, at the end of the day, it is his strong political will that mattered most," Lacson said.
"I cannot imagine this measure being signed under another administration. If only for this, I take my hat off to the president," he said.
