The Marcoses Do Not Doubt the President’s Support for the Electoral Protest of BBM

BBM





By: Elena Grace Flores
Senator Imee Marcos defends President Rodrigo Du30 saying that he did not commit any impeachable offense. She refers to the Recto Bank incident. The Marcoses are staunch ally of the President. This is despite the inaction of the Supreme court on the electoral protest of BBM. Du30 refuses to defend the Filipino fishermen whose boat collides with a Chinese vessel. This leads his critics to call for his impeachment.

[VIDEO]: Imee Marcos kay Duterte: No impeachable offense



The President Considers Frendsip with China

To avoid a bloody conflict with China, Du30 agrees with Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2016 that Chinese fishermen may have access to the country’s EEZ in the West Philippine Sea. “It was a mutual agreement. Let’s give way to each other. You fish there, I fish here,” Du30 said in a speech last week. The opposition insists that his failure to defend the country is impeachable by law which Marcos rejects.



There is No Basis for Impeachment

Marco said that there is no basis for Du30’s impeachment simply because to have dialogues with other heads of states is not an offense. It would be funny if to communicate with heads of state is a crime, she said. She also cites the Permanent Court of Arbitration’s decision in July 2016 where it rules that the Philippines has exclusive rights in the West Philippine Sea but not sovereignty.



Sovereign Rights Versus Sovereignty

In the ruling, Marcos said that the tribunal differentiates sovereignty from sovereign rights. Unlike sovereignty, sovereign rights can be shared with others, she added. Policies must be in place just like what happens in Indonesa and Papua New Guinea where Philippines pay 10,000 USD to fish at their EEZ.



BBM’s Electoral Protest

The Marcoses may not be happy with the delay of the Supreme Court ruling for the electoral protest of BBM, but they never blame the President for its inacton. They continue to work for the good of the country following the Filipino leader’s mandate.
