In a previous post by KAMI, President Duterte would only resign if likes of Bongbong Marcos would succeed him.
“Hindi niya kaya, that’s my honest opinion ko lang. Kung sino na lang sana diyan, in the likes of [Senator Francis] Escudero or [former Senator] Bongbong Marcos,”
President Duterte is a political ally of the Marcoses as his father served in Marcos’ pre-Martial Law Cabinet.
The president allowed the interment of Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani back in 2016. According to Duterte, he was just enforcing the law.
