Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte warned of a revolutionary government should Congress not scrap the pork barrel fund of lawmakers.
Duterte said he would move to dissolve Congress and impose martial law if the lawmakers refuse to cooperate with him should he be elected president.
“That would be an extreme option. Martial law by its nature is to meet the contingencies of rebellion and invasion. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth to say it. But if Congress will not agree to let go of the money which the people of the Philippines do not like, and if I force the issue and they threaten me with impeachment, then we will have a constitutional crisis. The pillage must stop,” he said.
Duterte said as president, he would be entrusted by the people to stop all forms of corruption and plunder. READ MORE FROM NEWS SOURCE
