Makabayan which is a political coalition composed of 11 party list parties was against the Marcos burial at the heroes cemetery – but this did not change their support to the Duterte administration. They detested the President’s promise to Bongbong Marcos that he will pass the presidency to him if he cannot solve the crimes in the country. However, they are still hopeful that Duterte will change his mind even if the president insisted that he just followed the law and even his mother cannot convince to change that.
