Aquino tells Duterte: Dissent is not destabilization

Oct 16, 2017 @ 11:49

Opposition Sen. Paolo Aquino on Monday assured that they were not in any way involved in any destabilization plot against the government.

“While we disagree with some policies of the administration, ayaw naming magkagulo ang Pilipinas. Destabilization and political uncertainty are not good for anyone,” he said.

Aquino urged President Duterte to not equate dissent with destabilization.

Aquino said dissent does not signify an intent to destabilize.

Despite differences in opinion and political color, government officials must work together as political uncertainty will not benefit the country, he said.

At the same time, the senator called on the government to respect the various voices and opinions on contentious policies like the war on drugs.

“Hayaan nating maglabas ng saloobin ang taumbayan sa mga nakikita nilang tama o mali sa pamahalaan. Ito’y bahagi ng demokrasya na ating tinatamasa ngayon at hindi dapat ituring ng pamahalaan bilang destabilisasyon,” he said.
