Ralph Recto urges Filipinos to let Duterte finish his term
Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto on September 11 called on Filipinos to let President Rodrigo Duterte finish his term.
The Batangas politiko also said the people should rally behind Duterte.
“There is no need for a regime change, only a refocusing of government priorities. It must re-pivot to the gut issues of jobs, prices, income,” Recto said.
He also denounced “extremism” in discourse.
“Extremism in defense of one’s position does not encourage productive civil discourse. When the message is blurred by a tit-for-tat of coarse language, the free exchange of ideas hampers democratic dialogue needed to forge public policy,” Recto said.
