Supporters deserting Duterte

40

An intelligence officer of the Philippine National Police (PNP) disclosed over the weekend that the police’s intelligence networks have received reports that supporters of presidential aspirant Rodrigo Duterte had started deserting him.

The intelligence officer who requested anonymity said police intelligence personnel have monitored that some of Duterte’s supporters withdrawing their support for his presidential run.

“They (Duterte’s supporters) are withdrawing their support from him one by one,” the officer said.

The intelligence officer added that Duterte’s supporters were disenchanted by his recent actions and pronouncements.


The officer said the mayor’s remarks regarding the 1989 rape-slay of Australian missionary Jacqueline Hamill did not sit well with many of his supporters.

“What we got is that some of his supporters were not really amused by his joke on the fate of the Australian missionary,” the officer said.

“In their mind, Duterte is self-destructing,” he added.

Meeting INC leaders
On Saturday, Duterte confirmed that he met with the leaders of the influential Iglesia Ni Cristo.

The mayor said he met with INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo on Friday morning before attending his campaign rallies in Cavite.

The mayor, however, said he and Manalo did not talk about soliciting support in the elections.

“Wala ho. Ano ang mabuti sa Pilipinas [Nothing. What will be good for the Philippines],”
Duterte said when asked what he and Manalo discussed.

Duterte said there were no commitments made by the INC regarding its support.

“Walang pinag-usapan [Nothing was discussed],” Duterte said, adding that it was him who
wrote the INC to ask for a courtesy call and a dialogue.

“Ako ‘yung nagsulat, naghingi ako ng pakipag-usap kung puwede at puntahan ko [I was the one who wrote to them, I asked for a meeting and asked if I may visit them],” he added.

In a statement sent to the media, Duterte said he explained his program against crime and corruption and his bid for the institution of a federal form of government to INC leaders.

“Ako ay nagagalak at naging positibo ang pagtanggap dito ni Ka Eduardo [I’m happy that these were positively received by Ka Eduardo],” he said.

Duterte said he will respect the decision of the religious group if it decides to support any of his rivals.

Other presidential candidates like the Liberal Party’s Manuel Roxas 2nd and Vice President Jejomar Binay had also recently met with INC leaders.

  1. Ginagamit narin ba ang PNP sa political black propaganda. Dba bawal gamitin ang govt agencies for political purposes?

  2. eltee mulawin on

    >>> I hope their DIGONG IS NOT GUNGGONG like a senator T.Gungguna.

    ang sabi ni Do-DIRTY…….
    1) wala silang pinag-usapan ni Manalo.
    >>>Eh para ano pa ang dahilan at siya ay nakipagkita sa highest official ng IGLESIA NI CRISTO?

    2) Duterte said there were no commitments made by the INC regarding its support.
    >>>NATURAL NAMAN…AT HINDI NAMAN TANGA MAGSABI AGAD ANG INC PAMUNUAN KUNG SINO ANG SUSUPORTAHAN NILA. SISTEMA NG INC AY ALAM NG BAWAT PULITIKO AT NG TAONG BAYAN.

    3) Sabi pa ni DO-DIRTY ….“Ako ‘yung nagsulat, naghingi ako ng pakipag-usap kung puwede at puntahan ko.”
    >>> HINDI NAMAN TANGA SI EDUARDO MANALO SIYA ANG SUSULAT PARA MAKIPAG-USAP SA KANIYA. DAHIL HINDI NAMAN ANG IGLESIA NI CRISTO ANG KANDIDATO.

    AYYYYY NAKU !!!! MACHO-MAGSALITA PERO ANG WALANG LAMAN BUNGO !!!!

      Oo nga. Kung kelan mag election saka nila bibisitahin ang mga religious group. Kung walang purpose si digong e d sayang lang gasolina ng sasakyan nya.

    • Do more research before accusing Duterte! Regret is really painful.
      The truth will only set us free.

  3. And why does the PNP have this supposed information. Are they identifying Duterte supporters? What would they do with that information?
    This is just another claim. A desperate attempt to sway people against him. We are sick with your lies and propaganda. You us proof. Show us evidence. You are making an article based on rumors. Irresponsible.

  4. isa na namang palpak na black operations na kasali na naman ang mga police. WHEN HAS THE PNP INTELLIGENCE THAT EFFICIENT? tama bulag siguro itong police na ito na hindi niya nakita o makita gaano karami ang mga tao na nag support ni PRES DUTERTE. o avid supporter ito ni maria roxas na gusto maging general. ay naku, wala na ba kayong ginawa kung di bantayan si PRES DUTERTE?

    nobody or nothing can change our support ni PRES. DUTERTE, ang presidente na hindi hawak ng mga elitista, oligarch, mga big businessmen, at mga cojugcoan; may political will at bakal na kamay; ang puso ay sa mga masa; at may bayag, compared to the following candidates:

    1. roxas – inept, incompetent, elitist, nag support nga illegal minings, corrupt (MRT/LRT contracts), walang programa kungdi ituloy ang daang matuwad, at coddlers ng mga corrupt government officials. supported by the oligarchs, ABS-CBN, GMA, DAILY INQUIRER, PHILIPPINE STAR at ABOY COJUANGCO AQUINO

    2. binay – berdugo sa pera ng bayan kaya super bilyonaryo, abusado sa makati, dishonest, at supported by DAILY TRIBUNE, MANILA TIMES, MANILA STANDARD and PEPING COJUANGCO.

    3. poe – dishonest, traidor ng pilipinas, inept, supported by pinoprotektahan ang mga oligarchs, AYAW IBIGAY ANG COCO LEVY SA MGA COCO FARMERS, SAN MIGUEL CORPORATION and by DANDING COJUANGCO.

    May 9, 2016 election is the REVOLT OF THE MASSES who wants change and dignity.

    DUTERTE FOR PRESIDENT

    • Merlyn Rodriguez on

      Every action has a consequence! When you keep on repeating lies, without factual evidence, it becomes the Truth to you! So are deaf to whatever you hear, because you embrace the Untrue! I pray that you will be responsible in your actions and suffer the consequence of your action.

  5. I go for VP Binay because of his Performance, Experiences & Accomplishments during his Term in Makati… no more, no less!

  6. I understand why this news is prominently displayed by Manila Times. Source is even more questionable. Deep in their heart and minds of the people behind Manila Times… they are pro-BINAY. Sorry but they way news articles and commentaries of your editorial staff and columnists SAY SO.

  7. I published my contribution here in support of Duterte. But the other truthful things I said about the PNP have prevented it being published.

    So, the Manila Times is afraid of the truth. Perhaps no surprise there.

    PS. I see at the bottom of this page you are allowing ‘sponsored’ advertising for sexually explicit agencies. And you dare publish an article on Duterte and his remarks and yet allow these images to appear.

    Hypocrisy.

    This is not the first time I heard about this report, mudslinging etc. I got tired of politicians specially presidentiables about their platforms and promises. So I am not a registered voter since 2010. Didn’t bothered to have biometric registration last year. But I regretted not registering after finding an interesting candidate in the person of Duterte. Didn’t know Duterte even when I traveled few times already in Davao. First the news about Duterte’s passion agains criminality caught my attention. So I made some reseach and realized that there is truth about what Duterte did good for Davao because I’ve been there. To make the story short, I won’t be swayed nor believe with this spectacular story of yours Mr. Vargas & Ms. Valente. God bless!

  9. My intelligence report is more intelligent than yours…..duterte will leave poe by some 13% vote gap with the coming survey results of both pulse Asia and sws….meaning duterte is running away with the presidency on may 9……go..go..go… duterte….

  10. ernie del rosario on

    Intelligent ba naman itong Intelligence Officers na ito ? Parang hindi. At saka malabo nga yata ang mata o di marunong mag estimate ng laki ng crowds rooting for DU30 anywhere he goes. Ah baka naman sa buwan siya nag observe – nandoon ang 3 stooges ni Ngoy..

  11. kapag mga pulis nagsalita laban kay Digong sigurado pakawala ni boy sundo ang mga iyan… di dapat paniwalaan ang mga sinasàbi..

  12. Juan Dela Cruz on

    ah ganoon ba ? .. kaya pala one of the headlines sa Inquirer is “DUTERTE WIDENS LEAD IN LATEST ABS-CBN-PULSE ASIA SURVEY” ( date: April 24, 2016 )

    .. since when naging concern ng Intelligent group ng PNP ang mga supporters ni Duterte ? Isn’t that they shoud stay apolitical ?

    most probably these came from corrupt officials of the PNP … your days are numbered ! ! !

  13. What the heck is the intelligence arm of PNP doing monitoring Duterte’s supporters? I am not for Duterte, but this intelligence report does not make sense. What is the PNP doing? They are supposed to maintain law and order. Not to monitor if the supporters of a candidate are leaving or not.

  14. Mario Lopez Alejandro on

    I WISH DUTERTE WILL BE THE ONE CHOOSEN AMONG THE OTHER CANDIDATES OF PRESIDENCY.YES THIS PHENOMENON AND MAJORITY PEOPLE’S CHOICE BUT THE QUESTION IS THE PEOPLE LIKE HIM ARE THEY ARE GENUINE VOTERS?OO TAYO GUSTO ULIT NG PAGBABAGO PERO PAANO KUNG D TUNAY ITONG NAKAPALIGID SA KANYA.NANGANGAMBA LNG PO.

  15. My family has now decided not vote Duterte for uncivilized action and words, not for Poe as she came out to be an opportunist and american lier, not for Roxas for he shown in the past his failures and would not be a good President in 2016..

    Only 2 we are considering, Binay and Mirriam.

    For VP, all the way to Marcos…

      You should choose #SiMiriamAngSagot

      She’ll clean the Government of Incompetent and Corrupt and not just clean the Philippines for various Crimes. Choosing her would be like purging our body of various Toxins.

  16. taga palm springs on

    Miriam is still the best choice even if she is not on her prime. God can use her being a God-fearing woman! And Bongbong is ready to take over if ever she will not be able to finish her term.

    • Alex Domingo on

      God also used Paul even though he used to persecute Christians and made him a disciple of Christ. So it’s very possible for God to change Duterte as well as the others. We don’t know who God will choose for us to lead the country according to His purpose. So let us vote according to our conscience and discernment. God bless.

  17. taga palm springs on

    I too was disenchanted when a fellow missionary was permitted to be gang-raped in that Davao jail. The saddest thing is when Duterte made an unforgivable joke, that she lusted too even for her! Down with Digong!

  18. I am one of those people that deserted him after his “rape” remark… I had to rethink who to vote for as to who will best lead our country… Sadly Grace Poe is just no good to our country — She is an opportunist, Jalosjos-supporter, Danding/Ang backs her campaign, and I feel that her “sincerity” is not enough to warrant support to her. I cannot even comment on her abilities because she has grossly insufficient experience to measure her abilities. Binay is a thief, and Roxas is generally incompetent. Miriam is the most qualified, but sadly she is past her prime.

    After researching more on Duterte, the clearer it is for me that he has the extensive qualifications in doing more good than harm. He is a fiscal and a lawyer. He is not one of those bumbling idiots that we assume he might be because of his bumbling mouth. He is trying to test the limits of the ruling elite. Indeed he is the antithesis to the Oligarchy the more I think about it. He is not a perfect person, as he has his flaws. But his flaws are less of an issue compared to other presidentiable’s flaws. So I am coming back to the fold to vote for Duterte.

    • Same with me, media propaganda is deceiving and tricky. Duterte, remains top choose. Watch, you tube for more information about different achievement of its candidates.

    • Nash Ingarzi on

      abalakapa
      “After researching”? Are you really this short sighted and naive to base your arguments on him being a “fiscal” and ignore the kind of men that is he? a Perverted devil with blood on his hands? It’s but only a blind eye that tolerates this kinds of evil… And too bad you’re one of them.

    • jovita nacario on

      I congratualte you for seeing the evil in Duterte…Glory to God for the enlightenment…

  19. With its commitment to life, the INC leader could have only humored this Mr. Dee Gong with wasted minutes of petty talk. I do not think Ka Eddy would subscribe to the idea of taking one’s life. Isn’t it pathetic that Mr. Dee Gong has to write to the INC head just to be spared with a few minutes for the head of the INC to listen to his soliloquy? Indeed, I admire the generosity of the INC head to humor Mr. Dee Gong with a photo opportunity.

  20. and who is this intelligence officer who is releasing bogus info?of course dictated by someone, right? even those who are supporting other candidates defended his joke, how much more for his followers? i think you dont still understand that people are FED UP WITH THE CURRENT SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY that they opt to bite for duterte.with at least we have a 50/50 chance of reform, altho we believe it would be a 100% give or take. with other candidates, 0% of good change, just more corrupgion draing the country of funds and natural resources. IT IS JUST COMMON SENSE THAT PEOPLE WILL VOTE FOR DIGONG. as for the joke, go to different offices during lunch time and you will hear all sexual jokes. pinalaki nio lang at si duterte nagsalita. eh si jalosjos bakit no say so poe? always, always, justified osg me oera. DIAN KAMI SAWANG SAWA NA!!

  21. The more Duterte was demonized by his bottom cellar rivals the more his rating soar high you know the reason why Anthony Vargas because the people are tired of Duterte rivals mud slinging.

    • No need to demonized Duterte for it is he who is showing the demon in himself. Dati wala akong mapiling iboto para presidente pero ngayon kahit na sino kina Binay, Poe, Roxas o Miriam tatanggapin ko na maging presidente huwag lang ang demonyong Duterte na ito. Tanong ko lang sa mga Dutertards ano ba ang magandang katangian meron itong idolo nyo? Puro kabulukan ang pinagsasabi. Kung ano ang lumlalabas sa bibig ng tao yun din ang laman ng saloobin nya. Kaya huwag natin ipahamak ang Pilipinas pag nagkamali tayong maging presidente si Duterte.

    • Nash Ingarzi on

      Just what kind or moral bearing do you have that you think this is all about political misrepresentations? Or you don’t have a clue. Dutert’e been this barbaric and evil, what else do you think is new?

      Those people that vote for him are but pure ignorant and evil themselves embracing Duterte’s foul twisted representations to the lowest degree. And you think this is fictitious? Sad but you are truly a blind fool sir.
