Senator Antonio Trillanes IV believes that President Duterte could have an extended life.

Trillanes, in a information discussion board on the Senate, mentioned he thinks Duterte is wholesome however criticized his refusal to disclose his true medical situation in addition to whereabouts throughout his five-day absence final week.

“Habang nakikita ko sya, ang presumption dyan ay sya malusog at kaya nyang gampanan ang kanyang tungkulin. Hindi ako gaano nakatutok dyan at alam nyo may kasabihan eh, yung mga masamang damo hindi agad namamatay. So I believe mahaba haba pa buhay ni Pres. Duterte,” the senator mentioned in a information discussion board on the Senate.

Trillanes agreed that the President’s well being is of national concern primarily based on the 1987 Constitution. Under Section 12, Article VII, “in case of serious illness of the President, the public shall be informed of his state health.”

“Yung buong bansa ay dapat maging interesado sa tunay na kalagayan ng kalusugan ng ating Pangulo, hindi dahil sa gustong mamatay sya o kung anoman man kundi yan ay nakasaad sa ating Saligang Batas,” he mentioned.

“Kagaya nito, pumunta sya ng incognito sa byahe, sa akin eh being a President dapat eh responsible ka sa mga actions mo. Kung anong mangyari sa kanya eh mamumublema yung buong bansa. Pero ‘yung mga ganyan eh gusto nya, yung mga ganyang story propagating na parang ordinaryo syang tao,” the senator mentioned.

Whether the general public can buy Duterte’s claims that he was solely resting and went on together with his work “in secret”, needn’t be made a difficulty, Trillanes mentioned.

“Alam nyo dito kay Pres. Duterte, hindi mo na alam kung ano sinasabi nyang totoo o hindi eh dahil pinapalagpas natin sya na magsalita ng mga hindi totoo o outright na mga kasinungalingan. Kaya ngayon, pagka binobola nya ang taong bayan parang nasasanay na tayo, hindi dapat,” he mentioned.
