Who is running the government?
Communist leader Jose Maria Sison has bared an unverified report that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio has supposedly joined a careteaker committee while President Duterte was allegedly battling illness.
Sison earlier disclosed that the President was in a coma last Sunday but could not confirm such report. Malacañang has denied his allegations, saying the 73-year-old Duterte was healthy.
“One more report circulating is that Sara Inday and key cabinet men have formed a caretaker committee to run the government while Duterte is indisposed,” Sison wrote on Facebook.
“This report needs to be verified or negated by Duterte´s public appearance. We do not know the original source of the reports. The Duterte ruling clique itself might be the source to deflect attention from the raging issues against Duterte,” he said.
Despite sharing rumors about his poor health, Sison said he believes Duterte was “still alive and capable of doing more mischief, mass murder and mass intimidation.”
