Vice Gov: No Reason to Declare RevGov

Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio ‘Bong’ Lacson said in a radio interview yesterday, that he sees no reason for President Rodrigo Duterte to declare a revolutionary government. This was based on the earlier statement of the President that he might declare a revolutionary government.

Maybe this is the strategy of the President to counter those who plan to overthrow his leadership, the Vice Governor said.

“Hence, let Congress go ahead in their discussion about federalism,” he said.

On the other hand, Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr. said, “insofar as federalism is concerned, Congress should now start rigidly scrutinizing all its aspects. They must also consider the situation of poor areas on what they will do once federalism takes effect.”*( Edith B. Colmo)
