[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos said that the conflict with rebels is a world issue.
Detractors say that the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the legality of President Duterte’s imposition of martial law in Mindanao can only serve to feed his predisposition to authoritarianism. He has betrayed all too often by self-comparison with Ferdinand Marcos, they said.
Strong Pro – Martial Law Vote
11 justices agreed with the president. 3 would have gone along but partially including the Supreme Court Chief Justice, There’s only one full dissenter, Marvic Leonen. Battling insurgents and renegade rebels in Marawi is not easy because of their “ISIS” connections. This is why Du30 decided to cover all of Mindanao of Martial Law in anticipation of the conflict spilling over.
Military Backs the President’s Declaration
According to the military, even before the Marawi flare-up, some of the enemies already crossed the sea from Lanao del Sur, the province of which Marawi is the capital. They have gone to Bohol province, in the Visayas as well where they were immediately ceased because of the residents’ coordination with authorities. In Metro Manila itself, alerts to terrorist threats are under close watch at the present time.
The President’s Ways
Du30 already raises the prospect of Countrywide martial law for the drug war. He, however, continued to use normal powers in dealing with it. His ways are considered too brutal, anyway. Du30 is also accused of masterminding extra-judicial killings. The president just doesn’t care for as long as he serves the people well. Although, he looks forward to Marcos’ presidential takeover and to spend time with his grandchildren.
