Lacson backs Duterte: I will be proud to be a Maharlikan
Goodbye Philippines, hello Maharlika.
Senator Panfilo Lacson has rallied behind President Duterte’s proposal to change the country’s name to Maharlika.
Lacson said the Philippines, named after King Philip II of Spain, only reminds the nation of its 300-year colonial status.
“Take out the politics attached to it, Maharlika sounds like truly ours. I will be proud to be a Maharlikan,” he tweeted.
