Duterte unfazed by alleged ouster plots: ‘Di naman ako squatter!
By Prince Golez
The chief executive said he will not act on the alleged ouster efforts against him by the communist rebels and members of the opposition.
“Wala… I — sabi ko wala naman akong problema diyan. I’m — I was elected by the people. I’m not squatter there. So eventually the military and the police will have to face the crisis, the dilemma,” President Rodrigo Duterte said.
Duterte reiterated the Magdalo group and the former administration Liberal Party have connived with the Communist Party of the Philippines to destabilize the government.
“I said maybe September 21st something — only plan. But what I’m sure of is that there’s a collaborative efforts of the left, the Magdalo, and the Yellow. Some, but not all,” he said.
The date also marks the 46th anniversary of the declaration of martial law by then President Ferdniand Marcos.
In a one-on-one interview with Chief Presidential Legal Adviser Salvador Panelo on Tuesday, Duterte claimed that a foreign country supplied him information that opposition groups have “combined” to remove him from office.
“I have the evidence. I have the conversation provided by a foreign country sympathetic to us. We don’t have that sophistication,” he said.
