I will declare martial law 'if I want to' – Duterte

Recommended Posts

President Rodrigo Duterte said that if the situation in the Philippines becomes "virulent," he will declare martial law if he "wants" to. "Kung gusto ko

(If I want to), and if it will deteriorate into something really very virulent, I will declare martial law if I want to. Walang makapigil sa akin (No one can

stop me)," said Duterte on Saturday, January 14, in Davao City. The President was not specific about the potentially "virulent" situation in the

country, but before the statement, he was defending his war against drugs. Duterte gave assurances that, if he were to declare martial law, he would

only do so with the best interest of citizens in mind.
