Erice on slump in President’s rating: ‘Time to listen to his critics’
It’s time to listen to the critics.
This was the advice of Caloocan City second-district Rep. Edgar Erice to President Rodrigo Duterte after the results of the latest Social Weather Stations showed an 18-point decline in his net satisfaction rating.
“This should be taken by the president as a wake-up call,” said Erice, a member of the Magnificent 7 group, which has been critical of the Duterte government.
It’s time that he should also listen to his critics, specially on the issue of war on drugs. It’s already a cause of embarrassment not only here but all over the world,” he said.
He added that the President should particularly heed calls to put a stop to the bloody drug war.
“The war on drugs is a losing proposition it is doomed to fail as similar template had been tried by many many countries and the results were the same: failure, police brutality and impunity and the collateral damage of innocent civilians,” Erice said.
