MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has been in office for 180 days but several ouster plots against him have already been reported.

The latest is the alleged blue print operation targeting his ouster by a former envoy of the U.S. in the Philippines.

However, Malacañang believes that those who devise these plots will not succeed.

Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella also said the proof is the high satisfaction and trust ratings of the public for the administration of President Duterte.

“The President continues to enjoy the trust of the people and people on the ground, apparently appreciate what he is doing,” said Undersecretary Abella.

Meanwhile, Malacañang defended the anti-drug war against its critics.

The campaign, they say, can already be regarded a success for revealing the extent of the illegal drug problem including the involvement of government personnel in the proliferation of drug trade in the country.

“We’re able to uncover the length, depth and breadth of the actual situation. The fact that it is able to identify at least 4,000-5,000 thousand people in government who are actually involved in the drug trade, one way or another, that is already significant,” Abella added. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
