Several controversial banners such as the one placed in an overhead pedestrian crossing in Quezon City were displayed in various parts of Metro Manila. The party or persons responsible for installing the banners have not yet been identified as of press time.
“It may well be true,” said a leftist group, as Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte meets and shakes hands with China President Xi Jinping (inset) who has been declared president for life.
It seems that Duterte is seeking a similar term as he is accused of pushing for the passing of changes in the Philippine constitution via a charter change (Cha-Cha) toward federalism.
But as of today, no one is certain as to what the so-called “Constitutional Assembly” (ConAss) would mean for the Filipinos.
On the other hand, Duterte made a statement that he would not seek a second term and that he would step down as president after the country has been converted into a federal government.
A Duterte fan from Sydney who did not want to be identified said: “The president never said that; if he did, he never meant it or if he meant it, he was just joking. If he did not mean it as a joke, that is Visayan culture.” Quo Vadis, Duterte? ━ dmc
