Duterte: I’m thinking of quitting the presidency

Reacting to the President’s statement, the head of the administration’s economic team suggested that he take a vacation and get some rest, while a senator said the President’s desire to step down should not be taken literally.

The President’s declaration of stepping down from power was “farthest from the truth,” said Jose Maria “Joma” Sison, exiled Communist Party of the Philippines founder.
“So long as he can cling to his position, he will … maximize his power to delay his day of trial before the International Criminal Court,” Sison said. —With reports from Ben O. de Vera, DJ Yap, Marlon Ramos, Jerome Aning and Delfin T. Mallari Jr.
