‘RevGov’ is Duterte’s fallback to his widely-despised dysfunctional administration — fishers group
Manila, Philippines – The militant Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (PAMALAKAYA) on Monday slammed the push for a sham “revolutionary government” by fanatics of President Rodrigo Duterte. The group stressed that this move is a counter-measure to the continuing eroding public support.
“This is a desperate measure called for a desperate time. On top of the fascist rule of the present regime, its criminal incompetence is totally exposed under the pandemic, leaving the people distraught leading to the disapproval of Duterte,” Fernando “Ka Pando” Hicap, National Chairperson of Pamalakaya said in a press statement.
He added that various social indicators serve bases for Duterte’s eroding public support such as the surveys by the Social Weather Station (SWS), that 45% are jobless, about 80% claim worse situation compared to last year, 86% are stressed by the pandemic, and 51% claim danger to criticize the regime.
“We should all note that 1 of every 2 Filipinos sees Duterte as a tyrant, and majority are bearing the brunt of his criminal incompetence. Adding all the anomalies at the PhilHealth, and the endless thoughtless rules imposed by the IATF, it should be declared that the Duterte regime itself is the national stressor of the people,” Hicap slammed.
Finally, he slammed the move for a dictatorship as a futile effort to arrest the mounting calls of the people for the ouster or resignation of Duterte.
“For many years, the people have been demanding Duterte to resign, obviously for his anti-people and anti-democratic rule, such as his crimes against humanity, blatant violation of the people’s democratic rights, puppetry to China and total uselessness under the pandemic. The Filipino people do not need Duterte’s dictatorship, instead his immediate removal from his post is imperative, if we want to survive the pandemic and socio-economic crisis,” he ended. ###
