MANILA, Philippines — Former President Benigno Aquino III maintains that the Liberal Party has no plans of destroying the current government.
He denied the allegation of being the man behind the rumored destabilization plot.
He believes that if ever there are attempts against the current administration, it is perhaps a decision of the people because of the failed promises of President Duterte.
“Wala kaming pinaplanong ganyan. Kung maganda ang ginagawa nila kuntento ang taumbayan magtatagumpay ang government. Pero kung hindi tama ang ang mga nangyayari, hindi natutupad ang mga ipinangako, hindi maintindihan ang sinasabi dun nagke-create ng dissatifiscation. Hindi sa amin nagmumula yun. Baka dapat tumingin sila sa paligid nila,” said the former president.
(We have no such plans. If their governance is good, then people are satisfied and the government is successful. But if things are not going well, promises are not fulfilled, statements are unclear, then it creates dissatifiscation. It’s not coming from us. Maybe they should look around them.)
Aquino believes there is no reason for President Duterte to declare a revolutionary government.
He added that there are appropriate provisions in the law that will surely address the problems the current administration is facing.
For its part, Malacañang stressed that, at this point, there is no legal basis for Pres. Duterte to declare a revolutionary government.
This, following reports of an alleged massive protest being brewed specifically for November 30 with the aim of pushing the president to declare such.
According to Malacañang, the government sees no threat against the government.
In fact, the majority of the Filipinos still expresses their support to the president.
“We appreciate the calls of president’s supporters for a revolutionary government but I think there is no factual or legal basis as of now because the president has said he would consider a revolutionary government if the destabilizers would persist in their plan to remove him from office,” said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque. — Joan Nano| UNTV News & Rescue
