Duterte drums up federalism in Iloilo

IF THE proposed Basic Bangsamoro Law (BBL) will not be passed in Congress, war is not an alternative, stressed Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
The best option for this country to finally have peace in Mindanao is federalism, Duterte said in a press conference Friday at Diversion 21 Hotel.
Duterte’s “federal campaign” has been interpreted as his own way of testing the political waters en route to the 2016 presidential elections.
His supporters, including the former North Cotabato governor Manny Piñol who is an Ilonggo, have been prodding Duterte run for president, believing that the latter’s achievements in Davao City can be replicated in the national level.

The mass protests against so many things amiss in government are left to the so-called militants who are mostly left-leaning or rural folks mobilized for specific interests. Read more...
