Erin Tañada slams Duterte for junta remark

Aug 19, 2018 @ 15:47

Former Quezon 4th District representative Erin Tañada on August 16 slammed President Rodrigo Duterte for suggesting that he would entrust the government to a military junta.

Duterte said he prefers a junta instead of transferring power to the vice president because of incompetence.

Tañada called Duterte’s statement disrespectful of the Constitution.

“He swore to uphold the Constitution. His recommendation to transfer power to a Junta is unconstitutional,” he said.

“This shows disrespect to the very Constitution that gave him the authority to govern for 6 years,” Tañada added.
