Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Monday dismissed claims made by Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chair Jose Maria “Joma” Sison that the end for President Rodrigo R. Duterte is near due to the “growing dissatisfaction” within the military and police.
“Mr. Joma Sison, again, claimed today that President Rodrigo Duterte’s end is near in view of the “growing dissatisfaction” within the AFP and PNP. Mr. Sison said the country’s armed forces are just waiting for the big mass protests to arise in the cities of NCR (National Capital Region) and other provinces,” said Lorenzana in the message forwarded to reporters.
Lorenzana said such allegations are baseless as the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey gave the Chief Executive a 70+ satisfaction rating.
“The military and police would rate him 100 percent if a survey is made,” the DND chief added.
He also took a swipe at the CPP founding chair, adding that it is Sison’s followers who are dissatisfied and disillusioned, as these communist rebels and their supporters have been surrendering in the thousands to avail of the benefits being offered to them by the government.
“But Mr. Sison can certainly dream, can’t he? In his evil, convoluted and misinformed mind inured by three decades of good life in Utrecht, he has become the victim of his own propaganda. He is nearing the end of his short life with no accomplishment to show but death and destruction in the wake of the 50-years of insurgency by his discredited and bankrupt ideology,” Lorenzana added.
Due to this, Sison will be consigned to the dustbin of history as a once brilliant young man who amounted to nothing, the DND chief added.
“I seriously doubt if anyone is listening to or reading anything that he’s saying since he has become inconsequential and irrelevant in our country’s affairs,” Lorenzana said. (PNA)
