    MANILA, Philippines — Liberal Party senators revealed that several email accounts of their staff have been hacked.

    They were, in particular, the staff of LP president Kiko Pangilinan and Senator Bam Aquino.

    According to Senator Aquino, four hacking incidents happened when their email address was used to send falsified information on destabilization plot against President Rodrigo Duterte.

    “We were able to uncover that some of our Senate staff had been hacked, that some emails purportedly from their accounts have been used to send falsified emails to other individuals,” said Aquino.

    Some of the emails are regarding the alleged investigation on DDS and LP media plan to destroy President Duterte.

    It also suggested that Vice President Leni Robredo and former President Benigno Aquino III were involved in the said planning.

    Senator Aquino said this means there are groups who want to pin the opposition bloc on the alleged destabilization plot.

    “I hope the administration is not behind this, but clearly meron pong grupo na gusto pong magkagulo po tayo  sa ating bansa (there are groups who want to create chaos in the country) because they are pertaining to destabilization plots. They are pertaining to things na wala naman pong kinalaman ang (that are not related to the) Liberal Party,” said Aquino.

    The LP senator believes these may be the sources of the reported destabilization where the LP is said to be involved.

    The LP senators sought already the assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) on the hacking incidents. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

    President Duterte still the most trusted government official — Pulse Asia survey

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Friday, October 13th, 2017


    MANILA, Philippines — Based on the latest Pulse Asia survey, the approval and trust rating of President Rodrigo Duterte is the highest among the top government officials.

    He got 80%  in both his approval and trust ratings.

    Vice President Leni Robredo obtained 57 % approval and 55% trust rating while Senate President Aquilino Pimentel has 55 % approval and 52% trust rating.

    House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno have the lowest ratings.

    Malacañang said the public is confident with the leadership of the president though the survey was taken during the time when there was so much political noise.

    “Despite the multi-faceted political noise, President Duterte is still the most approved and the most trusted government official in the Philippines today the survey conducted last September 24-30 at the height of the demolition job against the president even implicating some members of the president’s family,” said Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella.

    The official also said the Pulse Asia survey will be an inspiration for the Duterte administration to work harder in giving Filipinos a comfortable life and in resolving criminality and illegal drugs in the country.

    Malacañang said the public support for President Duterte is stronger than some sector’s disapproval of him.

    “For all its worth, there is an attempt to shake the foundations but apparently as the Pulse Asia rating has shown, there seems to be an enormous appreciation for the president not just from a particular isolated report,” said Abella. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue

    Peace process is not yet dead – GPH chief negotiator

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Thursday, October 12th, 2017

    Secretary Silvestre Bello III

    MANILA, Philippines – Unless there is a formal document stating the termination of the peace talks between the government and the National Democratic Front, there is still hope that it will return to the negotiating table.

    This is the statement of the Government Peace Panel Chief Negotiator and Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III.

    “The talks are alive and we are just waiting for the President to give us the instructions to go back to the peace table,” Bello said.

    Recently, President Rodrigo Duterte said he is not yet ready to talk with the leftist group and maybe the next president will do it.

    This after the New People’s Army intensified its attacks against the government forces.

    “At this stage I am not ready to talk to them because it is not good for the country. If it is for the country, it is good, but the way it is now, I don’t like and maybe it would take sometime, maybe another president to do it,” Duterte said.

    But Secretary Bello said the President is referring to the 5th round and backchannel talks which were both canceled because of the absence of conducive atmosphere.

    Bello said it can be noted that  President Duterte’s key promise at the start of his term is to bring lasting peace in the country.

    “He made a very clear statement that his legacy to our country and to our countrymen is a lasting peace for our country so I don’t think the President abandoned that legacy,” Bello said. – Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue

    Drop in President Duterte’s ratings, expected — Malacañang

    President Duterte’s ratings, expected

    President Rodrigo Duterte

    MANILA, Philippines — The net satisfaction rating of President Duterte dropped by 18 points based on the latest survey of Social Weather Station.

    From 66 % in June, it dropped to 48 % in September.

    The net trust rating of the president also decreased by 15 points, from 75 % in June to 60% or “very good” net trust rating.

    This means, fewer Filipinos trust and are satisfied with the leadership of the chief executive.

    But Malacañang said that the result of the survey is expected since the past administrations also had this.

    However, the public ratings of President Duterte are still high.

    These things are traditionally happening after a year and a year and a half, you know the love is still there,” said Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella.

    He also said popularity is not the concern of the president but rather, he dwells on keeping his campaign promises such as resolving corruption, criminality, and illegal drugs in the country.

    “Basically, the major factor is that people are still expecting that economic shift that will put more food on the table, it’s basically a matter of expectation,” added Abella.

    Malacañang reiterated that the Duterte administration listens to the sentiments of the public.

    Meanwhile, Presidential Chief Legal Counsel Atty. Salvador Panelo believes the killings of some teenagers such as Kian delos Santos and Carl Arnaiz by abusive policemen have effects on the SWS survey ratings. 

    President Duterte will make sure these policemen will answer for their crimes.

    But Panelo said, the president won’t be perturbed with the surveys and he will continue his war on drugs. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
