“DUTERTE NOT A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY”

Former Tarlac Representative Jose “Peping” Cojuangco Jr. said his nephew, President Benigno Aquino III, was more a threat to democracy than presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

Days ahead of the May 9 election, Cojuangco, brother of the president’s mother, the late president and democracy icon Corazon Aquino, slammed President Aquino for portraying presidential frontrunner Duterte as a dictator in the making.

The Aquino administration’s insensitivity toward the plight of Filipinos is the real threat to democracy, said Cojuangco in a message  on May 5.

STEP DOWN!

Cojuangco, one of the convenors of the people’s organization National Transformation Commission (NTC), earlier had called on Aquino to step down. The call was backed by Philippine Catholic bishops.

“Duterte is not the threat to democracy. It is this administration’s insensitivity to our people’s plight and yearning for a decent and peaceful life which has caused this irreversible tide of compulsion for real and meaningful reforms,” Cojuangco said in a video message.

Aquino, campaigning for Mar Roxas, the standard bearer candidate of his ruling Liberal Party,  in his speeches said the May 9 vote as a choice between democracy and dictatorship.

Aquino said he fears the return of dictatorship under a Duterte presidency.
