MANILA – Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV accused Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has been employing tactics in his bid for presidential post.
Trillanes said that Duterte repeatedly told the public that he has no plan to run for the country’s top post, until he filed his certificate of candidacy before the deadline for substitution.
He also criticized Duterte’s campaign against crime, saying that the Davao City mayor has an imperfect law enforcement, and Duterte’s aim to reduce illegal drugs and crime by half in his first year of presidency if elected. Trillanes said that drug addiction is still rampant despite of maintaining the province’s peace and order.
In January, Trillanes already said that having a leader like Duterte will be a “disaster for the country” making it worse than electing Vice President Jejomar Binay as president.
