NPA welcome to talk and walk in Palace if Mayor Rodrigo Duterte becomes the president

SHARE:

Mayor Duterte wants to welcome everyone in Malacañang palace, even the NPAs if ever he runs and becomes the president of the Philippines.

New People’s Army commander Leoncio “Parago” Pitao was killed by the government forces last June 28. Upon visiting his wake, Mayor Duterte said that he would open the doors of the Malacañang palace to everyone. Even to communist and guerrillas - should he ever run and win the presidency.


"They want me to run for president. It's making the NPAs (New People's Army) happy. At last, they can go to Malacañang," said Duterte in an interview with The Manila Bulletin.

Criticisms against Duterte flooded the social media and accused him of being a communist too after he allowed the NPA to hold a funeral march for Pitao.

“The NPA is pursuing a kind of democracy based on socialism,” he said.

“I am not against you. I will not fight against you. We have the same view of the government and politics,” he said.

“(But) I don’t believe in killing fellow Filipinos,” he said, adding that he preferred negotiations or elections to bring about social change.

“After all, that guy is not an ugly guy. He was not a robber. He did not sell drugs. He was there dreaming of a different setup for the Philippines. That is all his sin,” the mayor said.

Duterte remembered that he and Parago were friends. They had a profound respect to each other.

Admitting that he had close ties with the communist, he denied being involved in any revolutionary activities.

The attendance of an estimated 10,000 individuals in the funeral march of a fallen rebel commander is a “reflection” of the New Peoples Army’s strength of mass base here, a prominent militant leader said.
