Pro-administratuin supporters push the revival of death penalty.

Pro-admin Senators’ Response to the Opposition

Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa pushes his intial death penalty bill. Manny Pacquiao follows suit. Senator Imee Marcos also said that this time, there are big changes in society. Together with the rise of technology, syndicates are also getting bigger. This is very timely for the double murder case by a policeman in Paniqui, Tarlac recently. The opposition calls it police brutality to blame the President. So the pro-admin senators challenges them to bring back the death sentence

More Senators are Now in Favor of the Death Penalty

Senators Tito Sotto and Ping Lacson are positive with the proposal. They said that the data shows that crime rates decline in the city streets. The only thing that it lacks is the death penalty. This scares heinous criminals in authority and mafias. Pacquiao even blasts Senator Risa Hontiveros that her party is just jealous of the president to blame him for any misfortune that the country faces. In fact, the opposition does not help during the pandemic. They just want to distabilize the government, he insinuated. So, the debate continues.

Why are the Dilawans Afraid of Death Penalty

Judging from the defenses of the opposition better known as the Dilawans, they are really afraid of the death penalty. It is understandable in the past when there were cases of terminating innocent people. However, in today’s world, with the DNA examination, digital evidence, and real time social media, any misjudgement can easily be challenged with public opinion.

The Reimposition of the Death Penalty Might Not Thrive in the Senate

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon thinks that death penalty with cannot thrive in the senate because of cross-party opposition. “It’s not simply because of the LP or Liberal Party. Individually or collectively, the senators believe that we should not impose the death penalty. Seven from the majority coalition and six from the minority are against its reimposition,” Drilon discloses.

[VIDEO]: Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said Wednesday that he does not see the Senate passing a bill to reimpose the death penalty with opposition to the proposal crossing party lines.

No Hearing on 8 Bills

At the moment, eight bills are in the Senate that impose the death penalty for various crimes. All are pending and no hearing is held, except for one. There are about 13 senators who might vote against the reinstatement of the death penalty, explains Drilon. Six in the minority will surely oppose plus LP, Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto.

Positive Outlook

Senator Manny Pacquiao who is pushing for its reinstatement in the Senate said it will give the law more teeth. He insinuates that would be criminals will think twice to commit crimes if there’s a tough punishment – like losing their lives.

Pacquiao’s Take

 “We must speak to these criminal minds in the only language they understand. They must understand that our government will put a stop to impunity. They have profited from thousands upon thousands of Filipino youths. It must stop now,” Pacquiao said. As a born again Christian, he also added that the death penalty is lawful, moral and sanctioned governmental action.

Death Penalty Cannot Get Enough Nods

Drilon implied that it’s not about the Liberal Party members blocking the reimposition of the death penalty in the senate. It’s about not being able to get enough approvals from the senators of the different political groups. Just a matter of conscience voting.

Imee and Bongbong Marcos Support the Death Penalty but not Imelda Marcos

Imelda Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos said that she and her brother Bongbong Marcos strongly support the President and his war on drugs. She added that if the death penalty is needed in the President’s campaign against the illegal substance then, it is fine with them. However, their mother, former first lady Imelda Marcos is always against the death penalty even during the time of her late husband, former president Ferdinand E. Marcos

[VIDEO]: Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on Wednesday said that her mother, the former first lady now Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos has always been against the death penalty.

Imelda Marcos: No To Death Penalty

Ilocos Norte, 2nd District Congresswoman, Imelda Marcos tells her children that she’ll vote no to the death penalty which she did. She is against the reimposition of the death penalty. This is her stand for a long time, ever since the time of her late husband, former president Ferdinand E. Marcos.

Death Penalty Passes 3rd and Final Reading

The bill seeks to reimpose the death penalty on drug-related offenses is already approved on third and final reading at the House of Representatives. The lower house in a session passed the House Bill 4727 with 217 voting yes, 54 no and one abstention.

A Matter of Principle

Imelda is one of the 54 representatives who voted no. According to Imee Marcos, her father at that time is very obedient to the law. The Death penalty is imposed back then and when the 3 million heroin heist happened, Lim Seng, the drug pusher is executed. Imelda Marcos really objects to that.

Differences in Opinions

Imelda Marcos apparently is against the death penalty because for her, isn’t humane, it isn’t godly. However, the siblings are against drugs, so they hope this curse of drugs will be eliminated if the death penalty is reimposed. They may have differences in opinions but the Marcoses remain intact as a family. This is a good example to the rest of the Filipino families.
