Duterte blames opposition for propaganda on term extension: Kayo yung may ambisyon, di ako!
President Rodrigo Duterte has slammed his critics anew amid speculation he plans to extend his term by declaring a revolutionary government.
In a speech at the launch of Cebu Pacific’s Cagayan de Oro hub Friday (October 20), Duterte said the opposition is responsible for rumors he will be staying in power beyond 2022.
“When you can invent that kind of scenario for your fellow men, this is — Ikaw ang may gusto. Kayo ‘yung may mga ambisyon. Hindi ako,” he said.
Duterte blamed “yellows” in particular for spreading the unsavory propaganda about him.
“These are just people who cannot accept defeat. Iniintriga ako sa lahat,” he said.
The term “yellows” is associated with members and allies of the Liberal Party, which was the ruling party during the term of former President Benigno Aquino III.
