Nograles on Duterte admission he’s a ‘dictator’: So what?
PBA partylist Rep. Jericho is puzzled about why President Rodrigo Duterte’s admission of being a dictator is creating controversy.
“The People of the Republic of the Philippines democratically elected a strong President. So what’s the issue?” he told reporters in a message thread.
“The guy is just being true to form. He never lied about how he would run the country,” said Nograles, brother of Davao City Rep. and House committee on appropriations chairman Karlo Nograles.
He was reacting to news reports quoting Duterte as saying, in Cebuano, “If you say dictator, I am really a dictator. Because if I don’t act like a dictator, son of a bitch, nothing will happen to this nation. That’s true.”
“If I don’t act like a dictator—my style now—nothing will happen to this country,” he was quoted as saying.
