The Philippine National Police (PNP) has said that it will never support the establishment of revolutionary government.
“The PNP remains true and loyal to the Constitution. We will continue to uphold it and obey legal orders from the duly constituted authorities,” PNP said August 23.
“The PNP will never support any move to establish a revolutionary government. We urge the public not to be distracted amid our fight against pandemic,” it added.
In a statement, Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque said “the call to establish a revolutionary government came from a private group and the organizers are free to publicly express their opinion.”
“The focus, however, of the Administration is addressing COVID-19 and mitigating its socioeconomic impact. The most pressing and most urgent concern, which requires the Executive’s full attention, is the gradual opening of the economy while safeguarding the people who are working/going back to work amid the pandemic,” Roque added.
