No need for a coup: Duterte ready to step down for junta to take over

Jun 5, 2017 @ 20:21

President Rodrigo Duterte has urged soldiers thinking of staging a coup against him to reconsider their plan since he’s ready to leave his post anyway.

In a speech before soldiers in Cebu Sunday (June 4), Duterte said his Cabinet is full of former police and military generals that could take over him so a coup is unnecessary.

“Sabihin lang ninyo at aalis ako. Itong Gabinete ko puro na… Nandiyan na si Roy Cimatu, nandiyan na si Delfin, nandiyan si Secretary Tabaquero. Hindi na kailangan kayong mag- coup d’état- coup d’état. Dagdagan ko lang ng opisyal ‘yung iba, eh ‘di kayo na, inyo na. Kumpleto na,” he said, referring to Enviroment Secretary Roy Cimatu, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and Presidential Adviser for Military Affairs Arthur Tabaquero.

All three were former military generals.

In a speech last May, Duterte said he would appoint another former general to a Cabinet post to “complete” his junta.

Duterte has placed over a dozen former military and police generals to key government posts since he assumed office last year.

Aside from saying a coup is unnecessary, the President told soldiers they do not have to plan his assassination.

“If you think that I am doing a disservice already, tell me, and we can always make an arrangement. You do not have to kill me. You will get nothing kung patayin ninyo lang ako,” he said.

    Bakit po Military junta ang gusto ng atin Presidente kung sya ay magbibitiw sa kanyang tungkulin bilang Pangulo?

    • cupofjoe

      E gusto niya na ang mga military
      men na inappoint niya ay siyang
      magbibigay ng protection sa
      kanya sa mga kasalanang nagawa niya like EJK’s, corruption, surrendering to China, etc… At ayaw niyang
      pumalit sa kanya si Robredo
      dahil gusto niya si Marcos ang
      kapalit niya.
