Kabataan Partylist Rep Elago to Duterte threat against UP: “The appeals of the students nationwide are legitimate amid the disasters and the pandemic. We need to listen to them, not threaten. Let’s focus on the issue, Mr. President,”



Solons from the Left-leaning Makabayan bloc has slammed the President for threatening the students of the State University.

In President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s last public address he threatened to defund the University of the Philippines (UP) after reports reached Malacanang that they demand the end of the academic semester and his ouster after what they seemed inadequate administration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kabataan Partylist representative Sarah Elago who backs the call for the end of the semester, made her opinion known that the President should stop making threats to the students instead listen to their legitimate sentiments and pleas.

“The appeals of the students nationwide are legitimate amid the disasters and the pandemic. We need to listen to them, not threaten. Let’s focus on the issue, Mr. President,” Elago said in a statement.

Bayan Muna Rep. Ferdinand Gaite said the President “has proven once again how detached he is from the people” and lamented that critics of the administration “are threatened with defunding while peddlers of lies and disinformation,” like the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict and the Philippine Army, get millions.


As for ACT Teachers Rep. France Castro described the students’ calls as “legitimate and just” and the Duterte administration should take them seriously and not brush them off with threats of defunding and further red-tagging.

“This administration should know that it is the state’s responsibility to provide the youth access to their right to quality education. Threats of defunding the premier public university violates the youth’s right to education,” she added.
